Disappointment

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Frustration and disappointment seem to be the 2 biggest things that contribute to bad choices on my part. It is like I think they will fix the problem. I know they won't. They simply add to the crap.

If I know all that then why do I continue to blow it. I am hanging a a couple of things on the places I store food. On the ice box, it says are you hungry? On the pantry door, Why, now? Both are eye level, so maybe I will answer the question before I reach for something.

I did not get to make my trip due to car trouble. We are trying to work out another time but I was sorely disappointed. I managed pretty good one until the night before last. There is nothing in my house that is not allowed as food but the whole cane of almonds. Gone. The tortillas almost gone, the box of crackers gone. What was I thinking? Food is not the answer.

I have a good piece of news. One of my rules since I live alone is if I eat everything I enjoy for a snack. It is gone until the last day of the month when I buy groceries. I am now without snack foods unless I make something from scratch. Me and carrots and celery will be good friends for the rest of the month.

I know that the more I recognize bad eating ad bad choices, the better off I am. I had to report to my compatriot who just said you will figure it out. I know for me, I should have just journaled it with all the angst and frustration and disappointment there for the whole world to see. Well, for me to see anyway. Maybe I need a sign over my journal, that says something to catch my attention on those days. MMmmmmmmm

    I know just what you mean. Good idea to put the sign on the fridge and pantry.

    So often I find myself standing in front of the fridge with the door open---and I think "Why? Why am I standing here now? What am I looking for?" Usually these are the days when I'm spinning my wheels and can't figure out what to do first. That fridge is a lure for me on days like that.

    Very insightful.

    I often eat just to eat. I don't know why.

    Gotta figure it out before it undoes me.
