I am very excited to receive my Hobonichi Techo planner on Wednesday. Not sure how I will use it to reflect on the year of eating and moving to be fitter but I feel strongly that there’s a connection.
I have planned food today. Dinner is pizza, wine, and then kettle corn at the movies. There is a part of me that wonders if this will really happen with that kind of eating…but it sort of has to, if this is going to work for the long haul.
There will be some instances when I cannot plan, and I will just have to work to stay within the calorie budget (or be okay with going outside it for a meal). It hasn’t really happened yet, and realistically, it won’t happen too often. I will go with the strength that I have, which is the ability to plan and anticipate most of the time, and see if the inevitable spontaneity that occurs isn’t too damaging.
I got my period yesterday, 3 weeks after the last one. Apparently this is one of the many aspects of perimenopause. Okay, fine. There’s nothing I can do about it, so, onward.
Update, 4:30 pm. I am wicked hungry. That is all.
