I was doing really well with mindful eating for the past little bit, but had a tiny bit of a screw-up this evening when a bag of chocolate chips was just too good to put down (in amongst other things). I’m trying not to dwell, but I’m kinda pissed at myself for not paying attention to my body. It’s pretty rude of me.
My latest schedule of healthy eating during the weekdays and eating what I want on the weekends worked well in theory, but in practice, I found my thought process was more like “I should have ice cream because it’s the weekend” instead of “I really want ice cream so let’s go get some” - if you know what I’m sayin. I don’t want to use the weekend as an excuse to eat poorly and/or binge. Instead, I think I’m just going to try to eat mindfully the next little bit, and eat what I feel like eating when I feel like eating it.
I’m fortunate in that I really love eating healthy, nutritious foods. I don’t often crave things that are deemed “junk” food. But as of tomorrow, I’m just going to try not to restrict. I’ll eat chocolate and ice cream sparingly, but I’ll eat it when my soul craves it - not just for the sake of eating it. Do you see what I’m saying?
I don’t know. I’m just fed up of these rules.
