Feeling Blah!

I've just been feeling "blah" lately. I know that I don't have to describe that feeling to some of you, you already have known that feeling in the past. I really think it has a lot to do with the food I'm eating. The mindless snacking. The lack of control. It really does reek havoc on your internal system. (Oh, well, not to mention TOM...my monthly friend...sorry TMI!).

If you haven't yet, stop in on Marisa's post from today on her blog at Loser for Life. She talks about her "no sugar" experiment. She has a lot of insight into her own personal experiences the last two weeks. I was intrigued. I loved the way she says she is feeling now. I'm not following her experiment right now or anything, but it's definitely food for thought.

So today is another day. Trying to follow my own "good" food plan. I did bring my stuff for the gym later even though I really didn't want to. I just forced myself, saying that if I don't bring it, I won't go. But if I DO bring it, at least I have the option to go if I choose too.

  2. I understand that feeling, too. I think we all have been there! I like your attitude - today is another day :)

    Thanks for the mention about my No Sugar Experiment. I am feeling very grounded right now and in control of my food. I don't really ever remember feeling this way. I haven't had the inner turmoil and dialog going on in my head about what I should/shouldn't be eating. I haven't had the serious cravings and the mindless snacking has pretty much gone away. I'm sticking with this as long as I can. I know it might not always be perfect; there will be times when a no sugar or no flour option isn't available and I'm not going to make myself crazy about it. I just know that so far, this way of eating is really helping me overcome the overeating. And that makes me happy :)
