Today’s topic is self-control, again. I love eating. Food tastes so good, it is fun to experiment with flavors and cooking, and I think about it probably a lot more than I should. I also enjoy overeating and sometimes feel like I am missing out if I don’t match the amount of food my husband is eating. Clearly this behavior over a prolonged period is the reason that I am so overweight.
I’m beating myself up a little bit tonight because I overindulged last night and tonight. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings and I got a much larger portion than I should have so my macros are way out of whack. I told myself to get the smaller serving and even put it in Cronometer, but still ordered the medium portion when my husband did because I didn’t want to miss out.
This is an area where I need to work on my mindset. I am hoping to learn to use food more as fuel for my body rather than a reward or a guilty pleasure.
The first step to overcoming a problem is admitting its existence, right?
I am thinking I may redo this week of DSK because I haven’t forced myself to be as strict as I should (and I am eating out again tomorrow for lunch to say goodbye to a coworker). I’m not sure yet.
I have stayed keto all week and find that I’m not craving sugar at all, but I am craving meat. Maybe I should keep going with the macro tweaks since I am having such protein cravings. I’ll let you know what I decide.
Here are today’s macros:
