How I know it's different
So, I've been back at tracking for a week or so, at 30-60 minutes of exercise for while, too, but just now I got the "oh, things have changed feeling."
I'm home from work, lunch was light and then I met a friend for an hour tromp through the woods and so I'm rather hungry. I had some toast, and then some egg salad on more toast. And I have a raging headache. I just about headed into the kitchen for one more slice of bread and said "stop, you have a headache. Bread does not cure headaches. Go get some ibuprofen and do some neck stretches."
I backed away from the bread and went in search of what could actually help me.
I seem to have eaten my dinner at 4pm, which is fine, and I have about 200 calories for something later if I need it.
Normally, I would have just had the bread. With butter, and then some more. And maybe a little more.
But with tracking I know my body has had the fuel it needs today.
Have you had moments like this where you could tell you had changed?
It's about commitment, not motivation.
