Today I started my day with some mindfulness. I thought about making sure I am patient with my family. I tend to be very impatient with them and am working on changing that. I also thought about how today is a new day and I can start fresh. It’s never too late to have a fresh start. I just need to think about my victories from yesterday and add to those today.
Yesterday my victories were stopping while still having food on my plate and stopping when I told myself to stop. Today I need to work on not eating when I’m not hungry. Last night I ate a quesadilla just because I didn’t eat dinner because I wasn’t hungry. I need to realize it’s ok to skip a meal when I’m not hungry.
I’m feeling good so far today. For breakfast I made French toast and bacon. I had one piece of French toast, 2 pieces of bacon, and some mango. I stopped after eating that because I wasn’t hungry anymore. After breakfast I went for a jog. I’m hoping to keep this positive trend going!
For lunch I had a steak, I also had some caprese salad. I ate only until I felt full. I am doing well so far! I plan on having a treat between lunch and dinner, but only if I get hungry. What has helped is finding activities that keep my mind off of food.
Right now I find myself really wanting a piece of key lime pie, but I’m not hungry enough. I am going to stay strong and not eat any until I’m hungry.
I felt a little hungry so I decided to have just a small sliver of the key lime pie so I wouldn’t binge on it later.
I had way too much for dinner, but I still made some progress. I reached for some sweets in the fridge then I realized I’m not hungry so I put it back in the fridge. So happy about this moment! Every win counts no matter how little!
