- Our family picnic trip was cancelled, so we decided to take the morning off anyway and go mountain biking.
- Today I loved both my lunch and dinner salad. Yesterday I said I was bored with them. What was the difference? Today, I was hungry after mountain biking, and I was sitting by a beautiful lake. Tonight I waited until I was hungry too. Yesterday I was eating at my desk at my office while working and wasn't hungry. hmmm.
- When I was eating my delicious lunch salad today, I thought to myself, if you just keep eating this delicious food, you will be able to continue mountain biking for a long time. sounds like a win-win solution.
- my breakfast carrots were eaten when I was quite full already--and they didn't taste as good as usual. I just wanted to eat them because they were there. I think that is called emotional eating.
- I worked from home this afternoon/evening and also had a desire to eat for no reason in the afternoon. Knowing I would post here put the brakes on. I guess that's what the diet experts mean about being accountable. Maybe that's the value in having a coach: knowing you will have to report in to them.
