food- love it or hate it, you still gotta eat it
I have a love/hate relationship with food. I love to eat it, I hate the way it just sticks to my thighs. And stomach. And pretty much everywhere. I've decided I need to do something about it. Not a diet; a plan. My first step is not exactly changing the food I eat (except the really bad foods I already know I overindulge in, like cake and cheese) but just tracking what I eat every day. Everything I eat every day. The first couple days didn't seem so bad. Varierty of foods, spread throughout the day with no overly humongous portions. The scale didn't go down but I was feeling pretty proud of myself. Then I woke up this morning. Today was a definite hollow day. (No, I didn't still that from The Hunger Games, I stole it from my granny about 20 years ago.) I tried to eat sensibly, with small portions and healthy foods (donuts are healthy, right?) but my list just kept getting longer and longer. At first I thought "No way I'm getting on that scale in the morning!" but now I think I will. It could be motivation for next time I have a hollow day. To drink a gallon of water and then get the frack out of the house before I clean out the pantry.
