Creative Days Ahead
Thursday, March 04, 2021
The most important day is...today...every day. My 1st day was the most important...without it I would not make it...can't finish if you don't start. Then, the 2nd day was the most important...if I stop now, it's over, and regression will begin. Now, today is the most important...if I don't have a successful day today, it will likely be days/weeks/months before I get back on track again.
I have been taking note of my activities during the day. I work a lot. I do not craft or spend enough creative time. I watch a lot of TV in the evening. When I'm working, I do not have eating urges unless I am between tasks and near food. When I am crafting or being creative, I have ZERO eating urges...I'm really engaged and food is a non-existent thought. When I am just watching TV, I do get eating urges. So, now when I watch TV, I do double-time...I have the TV on but I work on something creative at the same time.
Staying within the 200/500/500 calorie ranges has been pretty easy so far. Last night, with my evening meal, I was even able to add some sweets to my meal to fill up my 500 calorie range. It's interesting that I can have sweets with a meal that is recorded and not feel a need for more or go into binge mode. I think it's because it is not a part of emotional eating...it's just a part of my meal which is not an emotional eating experience.
Hope you all have a great day! We're getting there! Friday is almost here! Hang in there! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on!
