One of the left-overs from being sick the other week is my weird appetite. Except in the morning, I don’t get hungry. But I know I need food so I eat. And because I’m not technically hungry, I’m not registering as full so I’m eating beyond what I need. And I’m eating crap. Like chips and popcorn in place of dinner because I have no craving for dinner.
It’s not good. Not good at all.
I’m forgetting what hunger or thirst feels like, what saiety feels like. And I’m gaining weight – just in time for summer!
It’s freaking me out. I feel out of step with my body and it’s weird. I’m not working out as much, I’m eating more than usual and my concentration is shot.
I need to get back on track. No, I need to find those tracks again first to get back on track. I’m so off track, I’m on another line altogether.
So, tasks this week:
- Journal my food to be aware.
- Plan my meals and stick to them.
- Drink more water, even if I don’t think I’m thirsty. Just do it.
- Realize that the 5 lbs I’ve gained will drop off once I get back on track and life will be back to normal.
Plus I almost fell getting in the shower this morning and almost missed my bus stop after falling asleep on the bus. What a frigging day.
