I think I need to slow down and take things one step at a time.
I ended up getting hungry around 10pm last night and eating a lot of random things…trail mix, my brother’s leftover burrito, something else I can’t remember. I felt like crap physically and emotionally about it and this morning I woke up and realized I need to tackle one problem at a time.
I am overwhelmed at trying to “fix” my eating issues. I think it is obvious what my problems are:
1. I snack after dinner – a lot
2. I mindlessly eat when I get home (or to Ben’s) after work, errands, whatever
3. I eat for reasons other than hunger – bored, stressed, “time to eat”, etc
When taken all together it’s VERY difficult to fix all these things, so I am going to fix one at a time.
For the next 30 days I will focus on not eating after dinner. If I slip on the other issues it’s okay, I’ll devote 30 days to them soon enough.
Taking this one step at a time will be a lot more manageable. I wish I could just say, “I am going to eat intuitively all the time and stop eating when I’m not hungry.” But, I am not ready to do that and each slip up is devastating to my self esteem and stress level right now.
Breakfast- I wasn’t very hungry this morning after eating & eating & eating last night, but that cycle stops here with a healthy breakfast. I am doing the Wednesday Raw Challenge (from Jenna) so I grabbed a Larabar and a bunch of fruit. This was perfect for today since I wasn’t very hungry, but on a normal day I would be empty without some whole grain carbs!
Tea Party- My Nina got me this tea set for my bridal shower. How cute is this???
I love it Can I start using this stuff now, or do I have to wait until I’m married?
