These are my confessions…

Hey guys,

Its a little too early in my blogging career to take a hiatus, but this is finals week after all, so I’m going to go ahead a cut myself a little slack. I hope that all of you had a fantastic, fun-filled weekend. I, on the other hand, studied my life away (read: moped my life away) in a giant sea of self-pity. I’m not a scholar and school sucks. That’s all.

Today was major step forward in self-reflection, however, and I have decided to reveal a revised set of goals and a couple issues that I would like to come clean with: I eat my feelings…a lot. I wouldn’t ordinarily feel the need to validate that statement with an entire post on emotional eating and how millions of men and women struggle to get a handle on their individual relationships with food–but for the purposes of this blog, I think its important that I discuss those issues fully and openly so that I can better understand my own body and what it needs to function at its optimum level. I will try to be as honest as possible and I look forward to any and all comments regarding any level of disordered eating including emotional, compulsive, or binge eating. Trust me, I have experienced all of the aforementioned and I struggle daily to establish a healthier, more satisfying relationship with food.

In comparison to my last set of goals, this week’s goals will be a little more emotionally friendly. While my philosophy, in varying degrees, has always been to eat as clean as possible–sometimes I overestimate my own ability to maintain eating habits that are both physically and mentally feasible. Having said that, here they are:

1. Eat 5 small meals a day–try to make at least 3-4 of them “clean”

2. Estimate calories in my head without judgment

3. Cut back on Diet soda–aim for 1-2 per week

Thats it!

So really, the objective for this week is to experiment with controlling my intake without really controlling the types of food I eat and fostering healthy habits without driving myself insane. Sanity is the priority here. Alrighty then, I’m all out of thoughts and ideas for today. Have an awesome Sunday night!
