A Momentary Misgiving…

This hasn’t happened in a long time but I have misgivings about my resolve. I feel like I could just let go of all the healthy habits I have worked so hard to set and just forget about tracking, weighing, and measuring my food. I feel like I want to be released from the energy demands it takes to live this healthier lifestyle. It would be great to just eat a pack of M&M peanuts and not think about it. Now, I’m not going to do that, and it’s upsetting that the thought is crossing my mind. It feels weak and out of control to have these thoughts. That’s the truth.

What can I do? I can do the work. I can examine my feelings and make a better choice. Sometimes, I turn food in times of stress. I look for comfort in food and that just sucks. Yes, right now, I’m having a hard time. However, it hasn’t been hard ALL day. This is recent, I’ve only felt this way since I got home from work. When I got home, I was truly hungry (internal) so I ate a 2 SP snack (28 grams Boars Head Turkey Pepperoni and 1 Baby Bell Light Cheese) and that helped. I am slowly learning how to make more thoughtful informed choices. It just takes time.

I can do this and so can you. Together, we can get through these momentary misgivings – just keep at it!
