Poor eating habits

Monday, March 30th 2009

I've had lots of clues lately that I need to specifically list my poor (fat-building) eating habits and begin to focus on improvement. Let me see if I can list at least a few:

Eating at night is my biggie. No matter that I've achieved and appropriate nutrient balance throughout the day, I've achieved my calorie goal, and I am NOT hungry, still my brain (not my stomach) begins its search: what can we eat, what can we eat, what can we eat. I have stocked healthy snack foods and I have hea...

Reclaiming my positive attitude

Monday, March 23rd 2009

I'm back in the rationalizing self-talk mode again. You know, the mode where you say to Self, "Oh, just a little bit of this/that/the other goodie" OR "I've blown it today, I'll start over tomorrow" OR "I'm too old/sick/lazy to lose weight, so I might as well quit trying."

I like to keep up with the 2009 Challenge forum. I log my foods and exercise. And that's a lot of time! Today, I'm trying to blog first and so see if I can set a new pattern.

I learned yesterday, or my experience yesterday seemed to teach me that not enough protein by nighttime is a danger to control of my evening munchie de...
