DAY 26 Weight Loss Journal

Back in Los Angeles, things are speeding up. There are several big projects in the works and I am really grateful to have my food all figured out for me. It’s so important to take good care of yourself, especially when there are extra stressors and demands on your time.

My usual reaction to this kind of pressure would be to make do – grab something quick, without forethought and planning – or skip meals altogether, until extreme hunger forced me into a ravenous feeding frenzy. That’s a recipe for overeating right there folks. Not only would this lead to overeating, it would lead to overeating the wrong kinds of food for me; most likely cheese and crackers, chips and dip, buttered popcorn and or wine. While I enjoy these foods, they just don’t satisfy my nutritional needs and certainly don’t deserve to be dietary mainstays.

Thanks to Z.E.N. for keeping me well fed. I’m feeling capable and strong, able to meet all of my commitments. I like that. It’s good to have an ally. It’s encouraging and comforting.

What foods do you turn to when things get crazy?
