How has food taken over full control of my life?
I spend an incredible amount of time every day thinking about, planning and preparing the next meal. I look forward to eating certain foods and actually get upset if a particular meal I was looking forward to is not happening.
Food has become so much more than fuel for my body. It's literally food for my soul. And I don't like that I rely on it so much. A piece of chocolate in front of me and I just can't resist. An internal battle starts that I can only lose. I give into my cravings again and again.
This frustrates me. I should be stronger than this.
I'm trying a mindset shift. In the long run, it doesn't matter if I get to eat that piece of cake right now. Tomorrow, I will have forgotten about it. It only matters at that moment and then starts to fade away with light speed.
And if it doesn't matter, I can always make a healthy choice. I might as well eat the salad. Next week, I won't even remember that I felt bad for a minute missing out on the juicy steak.
Will it work? What do you think?
