I am hanging my fingers in shame as I type this. I was terrible last night. 😦 I had pizza. And it wasn’t just a little bit either. I don’t know why I was so hungry, but I was starving! And I was really hungry, too! I took a break from eating to wait and see if I was still hungry and I was! So I ate another piece! I did realize something later, though. After eating pizza I seem to retain fluid. I guess all that saltiness does it. At least all this conscientiousness is making me realize certain things. I am learning more about myself through all of this.
I am also trying to not eat so emotionally. How hard that is! I have been a ball of emotions lately! I have had a lot of things and people on my mind that affect me. Usually that sends me into the pantry. Not so much this week. I eat and am done. If I start craving something I ask myself if it is time to eat and if I’m really hungry. If I just don’t know, which is really the case sometimes, I drink water. Sometimes that will fix the problem.
And btw, have you ever noticed that sometimes you don’t know if you are hungry or thirsty? At least I don’t. I think I get confused because for so long I have eaten when thirsty and I have my whole body thrown out of whack. So there is part of the journal and a tip! If you are just a little hungry, drink some water and see if you are really hungry or not. If you are hungry, you’re still going to be hungry after that water.
OK, it is time to work. And no, I don’t want to go. But I have two days off after this. Thank God! I am in need of it! My three days off last week were heaven and made me want MORE!
