Why do we blog? Lots of reasons. But the bottom line, for me, is the reminder of what I want to do, and why I want to do it.
Getting out of touch-- slipping into sloppy or indulgent behavior around food and health-- is a form of disengagement that ends when you wake up, metaphorically, and don't like where you are.
I want to eat well and take care of my body so that I don't have to disengage from the scale, from the glucometer, from clothes shopping, from photos and hikes and all the rest.
I can have perfectly nice food and keep my weight down. But I have to think, I have to plan ahead, I have to recognize danger situations and have a routine in place to deal with them.
So I think that will be the focus of my next few posts... identifying careless-eating scenarios and coming up with a better way to handle them.
