My food management journey

Daily? record of my food management journey to see if I can learn more strategies for effective management of my food consumption

Day 33

by Sassy1 on 17 Oct 2016, 01:57

Well, the "miseries/ mild depression" continued through the rest of the day yesterday, and I certainly used food hoping it would be a comfort - not that that worked, because I know it doesn't, I just felt bad about overeating and also had the discomfort of a distended belly to put up with!!! But that didn't stop me. I ate dinner when I didn't fancy it at all, because of all the afternoon snacking, and then continued to eat in the evening...

Instead of doing anything productive during the afternoon, I caught up with the TV series that we had missed on our 2 nights out during the week. That was okay, they were all very good shows.

I am not beating myself up over my eating behaviour though. It was only one day and generally I have been going okay. And I am aiming to have a fast day today, with my usual fast day rules - put off eating for as long as possible, but then have sufficient food so as to not go to bed hungry. Will see how I go.

Walked the dogs very late this morning, so by the time I had also done the cycle ride it was midday. Helps the day pass, though there is plenty I would like to get done today...

Goal reached December 2013, weight loss strategy 5:2, weight management strategy is eating a wide range of (mainly) whole foods but am back to following 5:2 for a while. Main eating challenge is the evening munchies! :razz:
