The Craving's Are Real
Friday, February 07, 2020
Every morning I crave a grilled cheese sandwich. Every. morning. It's so strange. My stomach usually takes some time to wake up in the morning before I start to get hungry, and I'll notice that I'm not HUNGRY I'm just CRAVING a grilled cheese. Then I start thinking about what to have instead... and remember that I'm not hungry in the first place.
I think I'm going to start bringing breakfast to eat - even just something small - just to eat something in the morning when the craving hits so that I don't get so caught in my head wanting something that I don't want to be eating.
Today at morning break a coworker brought in Italian cookies and without even thinking I grabbed one. I'm such a mindless, habitual eater. It's in front of me, so without thinking I grab for it. I do it in meetings or at get togethers too - if it's in front of me I'll mindless grab for it, even if I don't want it or am not really hungry.
Today I'm going to hit the gym after work for the first time in a long time. Nothing crazy, just go on the elliptical or walk on the treadmill followed by some good stretching. Something low intensity to get me back in the swing of things and get some movement in.
I'm looking forward to this weekend. I'm going to make minestrone soup and look up what other soup recipes I want to make throughout the month to help me stay on track with Nutritarianism. I'm going to finish "The End of Dieting" and look through the recipe's in teh book and see if there are any new ones that are different than the ones I have in the books I already own. Hopefully on Sunday the weather will cooperate and I can go for a trail walk again, I love being out in nature so I'm trying to get out there more often since we're having such a mild winter so far.
I need to remember to weigh myself and do my February measurements this weekend too. I can't wait to start seeing progress. I'm so tired of being like this.
Have a great weekend Sparkers!!
