It’s Friday and my week has been crazy. Want proof? I haven’t posted over at No Credit Needed, I haven’t been to the gym, and I’m exhausted. Instead of giving in, and eating a bunch of junk, I’ve decided to make a smarter choice, and eat very lightly today.
It’s always difficult for me to figure out how to have a successful eating day. My struggle usually begins with breakfast. See, once I start eating, I want to continue eating. So, I tend to avoid breakfast. Of course, that’s ridiculous, and usually leads to me eating a massive lunch. Then, the massive lunch leads to sluggishness, which leads to snacking, which leads to….
You get the picture. It’s super-hard for me to get started eating, and then eat sensibly throughout the day.
I’ve tried high-carb for breakfast, low-carb for breakfast, fruits, cereals, oatmeal, protein, fat… In other words, I’ve tried every single combination of foods that I can imagine. And, still, once I’ve started to eat, I want to continue to eat. (Please note – As evidenced on this very site, I can, for a couple of months or so, control my eating, but then I lose resolve and return to bad habits. It’s ridiculous, but, hey, I wouldn’t have the site in the first place if I was good at this stuff.)
That’s it. That’s the post. I’d love to have some insight or some thoughts on how I’ve solved my “breakfast issue”, but I really don’t have any. Instead, I’m going to go eat an apple, a few cashews, and drink a big glass of water. Hopefully, this will be enough to satisfy me until lunch, and then I’ll go from there. Step by step, choice by choice.
