An early start - as usual
Food adjustments are not a false-start PER SE ...
I just don't always know just how far to cut back.
Will moderation and modification be the new norm for me?
It is a distinct possibility!
(Not that there's anything wrong with that!)
Turns out, the answer is almost always the same one...
It's like starting over each time - each day, for me.
A kind of dietary absurdism. And
I'm finally ok about that! A happy Sisyphus.
(I've been called worse!)
It feels like a perpetual state of "Back to Basics"
With very little deviation. Just do what works best!
[Read as: very little cheating, if any]
*this just in* the REAL reason this bothers me,
is that food was always much more than just food to me.
But now, it can lose the "specialness" without losing the joy!
Ready to eat... preparing "food at hand"
⬆A zip-lock bag filled with chunks of 4 different types of cheese
A ready-made bag of salad and hard-boiled eggs
OK - ready! (Again)
Now, to choose "again" takes on new meaning!
Maybe real progress is sometimes made when
we stay in a rudimental "first position..."
And are more open to learning, and feedback. More attentive -
with a "beginner's mind." More humble? Listening more?
With no judgement of what "should be," or expectation
of what we think is best for ourselves.
As if we would really know what is best for ourselves.
We do, and we don't - or we wouldn't have a problem!
Weight is not the problem - it's maybe the conflict
about the weight (and the food) that is my problem.
Grilled chicken breast sliced onto salad
The onions were grilled too...
marinated in lime juice and chipotle.. At least
yummy menu items like this are not a "bad" compromise!
compromise = with + promise
(lest we forget!)
Hope your day is going well!
Drink it in. Eat it up!
