It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I think I set a record for quickest sinus infection of the fall. I know it’s not technically fall yet, but my seasonal allergies didn’t care. I ended up taking a week off from work. During that time I had some time to think. My main thought was my diet at first. I kept worrying about how I was going to eat. This borderline insane preoccupation with food made me realize two things: 1) I’m stressing too much about diet and life in general and 2) I need to stop worrying diet for awhile.
It’s not healthy to constantly worry and wonder whether or not I am eating the right foods at the right time in the right amounts. Plus, fall is right around the corner. That means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas food.
For this reason I am going to focus less on diet. No meal planning, no counting stuff, and no judgement. The only thing I am really going to do is make sure I eat three meals a day and try not to eat out a lot.
My goal is not to become a complete slob. I’m not going to binge out on pizza and beer (favorites!) or eat cake and ice cream all day. I just want to eat what I need and also what I want without scrutinizing ever meal. Hopefully I can establish some normalcy and let go of the pressure to eat so well for awhile.
I’ll still post weekly with cool nutrition info I come across and other random stuff. I plan to launch a part time nutrition coaching business this winter if all goes as planned. I’ll include the some posts about the new nutrition biz.
