It’s Friday and my week has been crazy.Â Want proof?Â I haven’t posted over at No Credit Needed, I haven’t been to the gym, and I’m exhausted.Â 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.Â My struggle usually begins with breakfast.Â See, once I start eating, I want to continue eating.Â So, I tend to avoid breakfast.Â Of course, that’s ridiculous, and usually leads to me eating a massive lunch.Â Then, the massive lunch leads to sluggishness, which leads to snacking, which leads to….
You get the picture.Â 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…Â In other words, I’ve tried every single combination of foods that I can imagine.Â And, still, once I’ve started to eat, I want to continue to eat.Â (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.Â 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.Â That’s the post.Â 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.Â Instead, I’m going to go eat an apple, a few cashews, and drink a big glass of water.Â Hopefully, this will be enough to satisfy me until lunch, and then I’ll go from there.Â Step by step, choice by choice.
