I realized that I need to take care of myself. I need a plan. What I am going to eat and when. I need to have an idea of how full I want to be. I like it when I know that whenever I get hungry, if I am truly hungry, I can eat again. Provided I eat according to a plan of healthy foods.
Then I was taking that plan one step further. I have had problems with too many carbs. When I eat carbs I want more and more. Just one more unhealthy sugary filled whatever. This causes contention and chaos in my mind. Not because an individual treat is a problem but what it does to my emotional side is a problem. It creates a feeling of just one more or I better have this now while I still can. Then an inner dialogue of why did you do that... you are never going to... at this rate you won't succeed... why did you think you could succeed...ect.
When I eat a healthy diet composed primarily of vegetables and lean meats I feel better and I don't have that inner dialog so I am creating peace. This morning I was thinking of a picture of creating peace. It just beckons me. I love the picture. So I am going to think creating peace when the cravings hit. Peace is better than the chaos I can create inside myself.
