You canít eat it. Another DUH moment. Iíve been on a business trip this week, and have been extremely busy. So, the food schedule has been three meals (GOOD meals!), no snacks. And surprise, surprise, Iíve lost weight.
And of course, that got me thinking about the snacks in my desk. Theyíre perfectly permissible, even healthy. I donít overdo them, at least I think I donít. But, if I can have three really good meals, and not be hungry, do I really need the snacks? Am I so afraid of being hungry that I need the reassurance that thereís something around?
How many times do we go to the refrigerator or cabinets ďjust to look?Ē How much extra stuff do we buy during our weekly grocery store run ďjust in case?Ē I do this more than I care to admit!
So, what would my life look like if I didnít store food up like a squirrel storing nuts? Well, for one thing, Iíd have to shop just about every day, picking up only the things that I need for the day. In short, Iíd have to act as if I were in Europe. What a wonderful thought!
And, an added bonus of this is that I would be eating what I really want, instead of whatís around. Much more satisfaction.
The downside, however, is that making time for daily shopping is extremely difficult. No matter how I look at my schedule, itís wonít be easy. Therefore, maybe the focus should be on completely cleaning out my environment. Seems harsh, actually, but then again, which is worse? Eating and gaining? Or managing the weight.
Once again, itís back to the choices Iím making on a day to day basis. Itís about micromanagement, and thatís hard.
