Yesterday was an "off" day for me. I was grumpy. The weather (dreary, snowy, cold) was definitely not helping! I think it's making it worse! I'm affected by S.A.D. (seasonal affected disorder)! -that was stolen...I mean...adopted....borrowed (?) from Matt-
In response to my mood, I ate chocolate....lots of chocolate. Lots of those Dove miniatures! Those are so delicious! And because I ate lots of chocolate, I decided I wasn't going to track. Yes, I'm only cheating myself! But that was the mood I was in yesterday. Although I did hit the gym for a double dose of classes...weights/abs class and step aerobics class.
To get back on track, I came up with a novel idea! Wait...are you ready for this? Hang on to your seats folks!
I'm going to (drum roll please!)...think before I eat! Yikes! Really!?! Will that work? How is that going to help? You mean I have to think? You mean I have to consciously think about what I'm going to put in my mouth? What kind of crazy idea is this?
I know, I know. Change is hard! But if you think about it, this Just.Might.Work!
If you think before you eat, you can combat stress eating. You can "Say No" to emotional eating! You can take back control of your life!!!!!!!! (ok, ok, I think I am being overly dramatic now and possibly going crazy!).
I did have an impulse breakfast purchase this morning. But I thought about it before I bought it and ate it. And I'm thinking about not eating my morning banana unless I feel hungry enough to eat it. My morning impulse breakfast was.....
Medium Skim Chai Latte from Argo Tea along with an original Biscotti! And because I've got one of their point cards, I got 10% off for ordering food and drink together! Bonus!
So, that's my plan for today. I'm thinking! :)
