Some days I can’t figure out why I can’t stop thinking about food. And it’s not the bad food. I found myself walking by the vending machine and the foods I used to love. Chedder Chex Mix. Peanut M&M’s. Hershey Chocolate Almond Bar. Kit Kats. And then the pops. Mountain Dew. Pepsi. Cherry Pepsi. They no longer have a hold over me. I don’t crave them. It’s the healthy foods I crave but I’m still struggling with portion control today. Too many cashews today. I know there are worse things in the world to struggle with but it’s just a fact that the control is so hard. The food still has a control over me and I don’t know how to stop it. I’ve always have a hard time feeling full and no amount of water helps. It’s really a mental thing, a daily effort. I’m just glad it’s cashews, and not Doritos. There is an excellent article about sugar intake and what the health consequences are. Most is stuff already known but it helps to be beat against the head with it. My sentence structure is in the toilet today.
Another day of sleeping in and I’m waiting for my wife to get back so I can spend an hour on the exercise bike. Starting to get back to where I can’t wait to start working out again. Maybe I need a good dose of that feeling of wanting something I can’t have……in terms of exercise of course.
