New resolve

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

A week away enjoying all my favorite foods and witnessing the ravages of cancer on a beloved mentor, and getting back to the stress and frustrations of work, mean that I have slipped back into bad nighttime snacking habits. Clearly, this has been my downfall in the pass and threatens to be my Achilles heel going forward.

I prep healthy lunches and store them in the fridge until needed each day. I think I am going to need to prep some healthy snacks and store them as well, so I can reach for them when I am leaning toward very unhealthy temptations.

    I feel for you, Bemused. Nighttime is such a hard time for me! Is it possible for you to go to sleep early? That always works for me (duh), but my problem is I often have to stay awake to pick people up at the station if they arrive home after the buses stop. It wasn't very smart to buy a house in such a transportation-poor neighborhood (ironically in a transportation-rich country). To while away the waiting time (and maybe because I'm feeling frustrated to be trapped in this irritating pattern), I often end up eating things I shouldn't.

    No matter how enjoyable and meaningful the trip, travel can sure mess up food plans and zap motivation. But you can do it! Think of your remarkable success in losing all that weight! You will succeed in going forward, even if you have to seek medical attention for that Achilles heel!

    That sounds like a great idea. Food tracking is the one area that I have not made into a regular habit. I know that I will see more weigh off if I start tracking and eating healthier. Good for you to get back on track, and being aware of the bad habits just lurking around the corner. emoticon emoticon

    Good idea. I keep healthy snacks on eye level in the fridge. Fruit cut up in glass containers, so I see it. Hard boiled eggs, yogurt, hummus and jicama. Makes it easier to choose well.
