After a week while of indulging I am very frustrated with myself. I am constantly eating things I shouldn’t be — not because they are “Forbidden Foods” (I have released all foods to be allowed) but because I am eating because I’m tired, lonely, bored or out of habit. I really want to get back on track with the Intuitive Eating.
So, like Caitlin’s Back on Track, I wrote out the things I have been doing wrong and what my goals are.
The Bad Habits:
- Night time eating
- Kitchen Snacking
- Too much diet soda
- Too many treats
- Listen to my Hunger = only eat when hungry, stop when I’m full (Intuitive Eating)
- Close the kitchen after dinner (to break the habit)
- Plate food and sit down to eat
- 3 full bottles of water every day (I also drink seltzer, juice, vodka – which is allowed in addition to the water)
Writing goals out makes it so much easier to hold yourself accountable.I am going to concentrate on these goals until Dec. 16th and will then re-evaluate them and decide on adding to these goals or making new goals.
This morning I started my new Back on Track day with a 6 mile run and a great breakfast of cereals, cottage cheese, trail mix, banana and soy milk.
This trail mix doesn’t have chocolate chips, and that is for the best
I also had some Amazing Grass this morning when I got to work. I have a container of this stuff I brought all the way from California, but never opened! I will be drinking this everyday until it’s gone. If I feel better, I will buy more. I have to admit that I feel great today!
Lunch was 3rd grade style – PB&J, apple and cheese stick. It was exactly what I wanted (minus carrots though) and that makes me happy and satisfied.
***Breaking News Update: I got let go from my job after lunch. Boo. I’m sad, but it’s probably for the best. Now that I don’t feel like I have to be loyal to my boss I can say the reason I couldn’t go to the FoodBuzz Festival was because my paycheck was over three weeks late. That just isn’t right.
He already told me my next check was going to be late too. The not knowing if you’re going to be paid is super stressful, so now I can at least look for something a little more professional. Thank you so much for the support on twitter. I appreciate it ***
I took this post-it off my desk as I packed my things:
