something new...

I have really been doing a lot of thinking this past week...doing lots of traveling so I have time to think when I am driving. I don't have the patience to spend so much time every day journaling what I eat...I haven't done it for months on Sparkpeople because I don't have the time...or I should say, I really just don't want to take the time. I have determined that I need to learn how to eat normal amounts of good food without having to use some tool or website to track everything I do. I know that is how I have had success but it isn't lasting success cause I can only keep up with it for a few months. I got a DVD and booklet about something called Ayurveda...there is a lot to it that I am still learning, but one of the things is to avoid snacking. For years I have convinced myself that I need to eat 6 times a day...well guess what? It isn't working for me. I feel like I eat all the time and I need to stop...the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results....that is what I have been doing! I ate a bigger breakfast, just a handful of nuts later in the morning and then a bigger lunch than usual. I had an apple later, then a nice supper. I did have a dessert and a small snack later, but I know I ate way less today than I have been and I don't need to have tracked it somewhere to tell me that. Exercise has been good and I think this new change will help me on the road to better health!
