Today is the first day of the rest of my life. And the first day of my food regime. I ate what I was supposed to, mostly on time. I figured out a way to get a big salad for lunch between my work appointments on the other side of the river (thank the universe for New Seasons salad bar). I was hungry a lot as I am used to eating much more fat and much more meat. No meat today. Lots and lots of veggies. Some beans and avocado. Some fruit.
I had a lot of anxiety this morning. Anxious about changing my routine. Anxious about not having food whenever I want it. Anxious about not having the foods that I want, the treats and high-fat sating foods that I'm used to. But it was okay and when I ate lunch, I was hungry and enjoyed it and when I ate dinner, I was hungry and enjoyed it. and that too is a change.
My writing group just left and normally I'd be sitting down to a Netflix movie and cheese and crackers. Instead, I'm going to bed.
