Week 2 Goals
--To do an exercise walking video twice this week.
--To continue to track my eating in my food journal--limiting a sugar treat (if needed) to one a day.
So I'm going strong into week two and it feels great! It's amazing how great you feel when your body is not on the sugar highs and lows. I feel soo much better all ready! I don't feel the craving for the sugar. For that reason, I am really trying to limit my sugar intake.
It's interesting how my mind works. Before I started, I was eating all the time--for entertainment. And so I continue to find my mind returning to old habits. For example, it's getting to be bedtime for the kids, and I catch my mind thinking, "What am I going to eat tonight?" And then I remember, "Oh yeah, I'm not eating for fun anymore."
I'm trying to pay close attention to my hunger signals and if I am really wanting a food. I did have some air popped popcorn a few nights last week, and that was fine. It's interesting to me how, right now, I don't really need to eat the food during the evening--when I used to do it routinely. It's doable right now.
I know that right now, I am in the honeymoon period, and that the craving for the treats and sugar will return--especially in the evening--all of that emotional eating when I was really tired at the end of the day. Of course there are underlying issues there--otherwise I wouldn't have a problem with my weight and overeating.
But right now, I'm in a good place, and I'm going to take it. No worries. Here's to a strong week 2.
