I’ll spare you the details of everything I’ve eaten, but I do want to share some insights from tracking like this for just a couple of days.
1: Committing to write this down makes me think about whether or not I’m actually hungry or just wanting food. That by itself is a big deal.
2: No one is telling me what to eat, but I sort of want to make better choices anyway. The Reese’s on my desk aren’t screaming at me anymore. At supper, I got veggie fajitas because I wasn’t terribly hungry. I brought half of my lunch and supper home.
Small steps. I don’t want a big plan that’s short term and hard to follow. I want to figure out how to deal with food in the midst of my everyday life.
