So, I’ve been at this whole diet thing for a little over a week now.
(Yes, I know. “Diet” is a bad word. But it’s easier to say “lifestyle change involving journalling, eating less, and exercising more”. Can I just call it a diet? Just for this post? Pleeeeease?)
Anyhow, whatever you call it, I’ve been at it a week and I’m surprised at how much my appetite has diminished. First there was the whole anxiety-driven un-hungriness yesterday (usually I eat my stress, but yes, there I times when instead I feel too stressed to eat). Today, I’m just kinda not hungry. And Zen. I can even feel myself get a little bit physically hungry before I feel any real need to eat.
Un-hungry. Zen. Nice.
Just think – it took about 4 or 5 days of journalling (mostly) until I was eating within my quota. And another 4 or 5 days to be Zen with it. I need to earmark this post for when things get tough, and I lose my groove. Because a week to get it back? I can handle that.
– 1 hour later –
Ok, so you know how they say “if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes, it will change”? My question is this:
WHAT IF I LIKE THE WEATHER?
(My other question, of course, is who are “they” anyway? They sure have a lot to say.)
What? My point? Of course I have one! My point is, I ate my afternoon snack for lunch, because I wasn’t all that hungry. I just ate my lunch for afternoon snack – a grilled veggie salad packed with beef and mixed beans – and I’m hungrier than before I ate. What is UP with that?? And what happened to my ZEN???
What does your road look like?
Smooth sailing? Or a bumpy ride?
