A small easy
Tuesday, September 01, 2015
It feels like a very long time since I had a day in which I didn't have to struggle to stay within my calorie range. Today was the first in a long while that I made it near the low end of my range rather than barely squeaking within the high limit.
So it's the end of the day and I feel a little bit hungry, and I'm okay with that. I've been so stressed the last couple of months that I've been snacking at night to stay full, as if that would dampen the stress. Maybe today I've just accepted that things at work will be crazy for the indefinite future, and I just need to accept the new reality.
Or maybe it's that I'm inspired by a couple of fellow Sparkers who have found the secret to their success, their own customized paths to dealing with food wisely and gracefully. It's been so reassuring to read how Pam and Carolyn have solved their puzzles - maybe it will get easier for me as well! All I can do is keep trying, one day at a time, and hopefully at some point this will not require so much conscious thought. I feel like part of my brain is always thinking about food, and it's getting tired!
