|Whole Food Fuel from the Farmer's Market.|
This is an old habit of mine that I thought I had conquered. Mindless eating. People always say "oh you train all the time you can have that piece of.....or that handful of.....". Maybe. But I didn't lose almost 20lbs and lean out by eating crap. I make a conscious decision about what I put in my body. Once and a while I'll indulge in some chips or ice cream and I won't feel bad about it. Because I don't think that one should go through life in food denial, unless of course you're training for a figure competition. But the majority of us aren't that extreme. A little "bad for you" can be good for you as long as you don't make it a regular occurrence. I aim to eat healthy 80%-90% of the time. That means that 5-6 days a week, I'm eating healthy, mainly whole foods. 1-2 days a week I "slack off" a bit. That seems to work for me under "normal" circumstances. This past week has been anything but normal and I know this coming week is going to be just as challenging. The big question is, now that I've identified the issue, how am I going to deal with it.
That remains to be seen.
