And by "rough," I mean, well....I actively committed to eating Tostito Chips for breakfast Friday morning.
Talk about a stomach ache and a half.
But here's the thing about having rough eating weeks: I can see my habits have changed. Previously, rough weeks consisted of binges of fruit, snow-piling every food within distance into my mouth, reaching for sweets sweets sweets, piling up on fruit until I was going to explode, and reaching all-time emotional lows.
But this week, I feel just a little bit off. I kept my calorie intake reasonable, I ate small portions of almost everything (sans tostitos and some cake), and I even balanced out my sweet binges the rest of the day. If I had a cookie, I made sure my other caloric intakes were veggies.
So, going forward, I'm returning to balance. You guys remember that thing called a "food pyramid?" We saw them in second grade science when we also used m&ms to learn about probability (by far my favorite experiment?) Well, I've been taking another glance at that food pyramid. It's kind of helpful. Lord knows it saved my ass this week. I could be a bloated, unhappy, depressed and lonely spinster. Nay, I surge forward, alive, hearty, healthy, and happy.
I'm even gonna look at the scale again this week. YIKES!
1) Not eating late.
2) Realizing I don't need to eat late.
3) Talking myself out of sweet cravings when they were unneccessary.
Goals moving forward:
1) Get on a scale. Tuesday morning.
2) Pay attention to how often I eat sweets, and act accordingly to space them out.
3) If I'm going to be baking, to not eat half of what I make, effectively, as I make it.
4) Balance out my foods with a food pyramid psyche.
