Elk Posted February 27, 2014 Report Share Posted February 27, 2014 I don't have any fixed goal. My goal is my own happiness and well-being. So I'm pretty fluid with my goals - sometimes a bit too fluid, in all likelihood. But I also see it as a strength, and a part of my nature. Because I am an airbender 8D PRESENT GOAL: TO DEVELOP A HEALTHIER EATING PATTERN/ATTITUDENo refined carbs until March 3rd, and no refined sugar until March 10th.I may extend the refined carbs thing, or make a system of limited refined carbs (i.e., 1 allowed per day).Also, this is a six-week challenge, so I guess I'll plan the following parts based on what happens here. There are a lot of reasons why I'm doing this:I'm interested in the qualitative experience of not eating sugar. I'm looking forward to experiencing the changes in the flavours of food as the sugar numbness subsides.I have a tendency towards escapism, and my major poisons are the internet and sugar/carby/chocolate snacks. Because I'm not allowing myself sugar, I am more aware when a craving arises. This allows me to understand when and why the craving is there.This dietary choice is forcing me to learn to feed myself properly. Cook dinners instead of eating popcorn and toast and chocolate!I like to challenge myself. Best channel my masochistic tendencies into something productive, no? x.xI've never done it before and it's kind of fun.I developed an odd attitude towards food after going through a difficult period in my life. Even though I never became unhealthy because of it, I found myself eating almost exclusively for emotional reasons, but not eating when/because I felt genuinely hungry.Hoping to lose the 5 lbs I gained working in a bakery haha :/Want to see if I'll have better energy!Yep! PLANS FOR SUCCESS:Break the habit of eating sweets/bread at night by replacing it with the habit of drawing at night.Plan meals ahead.Ensure the people in my environment know I am doing this.Recognize that failures are a part of the path to success. That I am taking steps to improve my wellbeing, and I'm not going to get it perfect right off the bat. 1 Quote Airbending Druid~ ------o| Current Challenge |o------ Previous challenges: 1 2 3 4 Link to comment
