Today I didn't feel especially hungry, and my energy level was pretty good, but I was oddly emotional in the morning. I still think it has to do with being nervous about my quarterly review tomorrow. I can't wait until it's over with. I tried to let myself sit in the moment and experience the feelings that I was feeling of insecurity. Too many times I try to just buck up and not let myself feel anything negative. The older I get, the more I know that is the wrong approach. sometimes just taking a couple minutes to really feel your true feelings is the catalyst to help you get past them. I've given this advice to others, and I'm trying to take it for myself.
One thing I was thinking about this evening is that I really have stopped thinking about food all through the day. It's amazing what a hold sugar can have on you. Once you start eating it, it becomes all you think of, like a drug. But when it's taken out of your diet, all those craving start to fade away. It's such a feeling of freedom and I love it.
Let's talk about food. I'm trying to use up what I have in the refrigerator, so I did a repeat of things. I've eaten over the last few days.
Here's a look at what I ate today:
Fruit Smoothie Bowl
Brown Rice and Cauli-rice with a dab of Edamame Guacamole
Vegetable Potato Soup
Apple with a dollop of nut butter
Wish me luck for tomorrow. Luckily, I go second so I don't have to sweat it out the entire day. I'm going to sleep now and try to calm my mind. I already know I can do hard things. I'm doing this!
