So I didn't really get anything "analyzed" yesterday. I just didn't have time to fit all that much thought into my day. I've determined that "figuring out why" takes A LONG TIME. So my approach yesterday was what I improved. I spent the day working on keeping my calories low like I normally do. Then before I came home, I had a plan. And I stuck with that plan. We were having chili dogs for dinner. So when they were ready, I ate one with a few corn chips, then I consumed my time with other things. Then a couple of hours later, I ate the other one that I had planned on having. I spent some time reading over some material for work. It was a half hour after that when I had a dill pickle (love those things!) Then as a late night snack, I had some grapes.
I would like to thank you for your suggestions. I tried to use busy work so I didn't eat so much and I think that helped. I also attempted to identify how I was feeling when I ate, but I couldn't quite figure that one out. I wasn't bored or upset. I think I just wanted the food. Odd. I'll have to work on that some more. And I kept a positive attitude, knowing that I could control what I did, and it worked!
Today is a new day and another chance to do it again. I'll come up with a game plan sometime throughout the day and I'll be ready for myself by the time this evening rolls around.
