The battle inside my head.

Monday, November 20, 2017

It starts the minute I wake up... the conversations in my head. What day is it? Do I have to work? What appointments do I have? Then breakfast is really easy... I eat a few different options for breakfast, always reasonable. Then I’m busy. Until lunch.it all goes down hill. What am I eating for dinner? How can I fit my calories in today? What can I get away with and save room for dinner? I’m busy, drive through! No! Ok but just a kids meal.... and it goes on and on, fixating on food until dinner which signals the end of the day....once dinner is over, I’m done arguing and justifying what to eat or not. It’s truly exhausting. And I start over the next day. I’m Not having fun today. I’m hungry in a way that salad isn’t going to fix. One day at a time I guess. I’ll just keep fighting the battle

    I have to try to have a few go to items that I like at home. where I don't have to think, just go to it. I get tuna salad from Harris Teeter here. I have a hard time making myself a salad. It makes no sense sometimes. I think it goes back to time. It needs to be quick. Almond butter and jelly. But bottom line is you are right. One day and decision at a time. I tell myself with each good decision, it gets easier and that helps ease my brain.

    A day and meal planner might help. If answer the questions befor you ask your self it might give you more time for other stuff. Good Luck

    This is where planning ahead can help. Then you don't have to spend all that time thinking about what you can/will eat.

    This is something that takes practice, in my case a lot of it!!
