This week I don’t have any remarkable results to share in terms of weight (maybe a 1/2 pound loss), but our assignment this past week was to think about why we eat. My answer? I eat because I’m freakin’ hungry. On the otherhand, I snack because I’m stressed or anxious. It is my belief that somehow noshing will abate the nervous energy stress creates. I am now thinking I might be wrong.
This past week was all about awareness. Thanks to the suggestions of Cynthia L. and ESO I downloaded an app on my smart phone to help track some of this stuff. When you have to actually input the information, it makes you very aware of what you are doing. I also really appreciated Kris’ prayer suggestion! As far as I’m concerned, prayer never hurts and can only help! With this new awareness, I found that I wanted to (and did) exercise more, just so I could input that into my app along with the food I was eating. As for the “Why?”, I’m trying to delve into the deeper issues. I think I’m still on the surface for some of this stuff.
After my webinar class this week, the new homework assignment is to track when you eat. Major meals and snacks anyway. I’m still not sure what that will show me but I’m doing as I’m told and keeping track. The trouble I’m having, is that I am struggling with increased urges to eat crap! What’s up with that? In the last couple of days I’ve eaten more cookies and chips than ever! What is my subconscious mind trying to tell me or do to me with this sabotage? Ideas? Am I stressed about the program and therefore snacking? I love to bake and do it all the time without eating anything that I bake. I make cookies by request for almost every ward event and family party, but never really eat them. The last few days, however, I’ve consumed some of everything I’ve made. The easy answer is to quit baking, but why after years of not eating what I bake, do I feel compelled to eat it now?
I guess the end result of this week, is not to show dramatic weight loss, but to show that my brain is warped and I really need work!
