Devil on my shoulder

Saturday, September 02, 2017

Yesterday was a typical day for me. I woke up, did my morning vital tracking, went for a walk and came home to make and eat a very healthy breakfast. ALL DAY I was into it. Ate healthy food, and tracked it, went for another walk, and even turned down the opportunity to go out for dinner, so that I wouldn't eat something that was unhealthy or too high in calories.

Then 6:00 came.

At that point in the day, it's almost like a dam bursts, and all my pride and self controls flows right over the edge. I had Taco Bell.

I must find a way to head off the night time lack of self control. And it IS a lack of self control, because the whole time that I'm actively searching for something that I shouldn't be eating, part of my brain is screaming "Don't!!" while the other half of me is taunting "Can if I wanna..."

So now, it seems, I have my September goal. Learn to quiet that devil on my shoulder.

    Hey ~ I see that devils getting around! I'm trying to be ready for the evening (my downfall time) having what I'm going to eat already planned. You know what I'm going to say... --- now just practicing "sticking" to it.

    I fought that night time devil plenty! Keep fighting the good fight, and track the taco bell, even if you go over your calories. It always helped me to track it. Sometimes you don't do as badly as you think.

    You'll find what works for you. One thing about foods like Taco Bell, the more you have it - the more you crave it. Also, I find that if I write down all the goods things I did for the day (no mention of the negative), it helps me to see all the improvements I am making. Celebrate your successes!

    I have the exact same devil! It is SO hard to ignore, we can only do our best and keep going - never give up! Maybe the angel on our other shoulder will help...
