I get off work about an hour and a half before Ben. This means I have too much time on my hands to wait around and get hungry. I normally take a walk right after work because I hate being cooped up all day Ben says I should be a Park Ranger because I just want to walk around outside all day. I am considering it.
In addition to a walk I need a snack. Yesterday I had a scone to tide me over.
Today I stopped at Trader Joes with a serious raw carrot craving. Weird, I know. For some reason carrots and Coke Zero make the best snack ever.
This afternoon I had the most intense chocolate snack ever. Ever. Take note.
Intuitive Eating – I have failed with filling out the I.E. forms these last two days. I forgot the paper yesterday and today I was too busy to even look at it. Boo.
But, I have decided that it is amazingly helpful in making me aware of my body’s signals. I am way off with what I think is hunger and fullness. I am also way off with when and how much my body wants.
I have only filled out the papers for 5 days, and plan on keeping it up until I feel like I am listening to my body every day. This might take awhile…
Dinner was planned while driving from the OC (where I work) to the PR (where I live right now). Even though I had over an hour of thinking time all I wanted was scrambled eggs. I considered making a fancy omlett, but really all I wanted was plain scrambled eggs.
I feel behind on life and blogs and friends. But, it’s late and I’m pooped! I will see you guys tomorrow.
