I've talked quite a bit this past month about how stuck I have been as well as how discouraged and depressed it has made me. I realized that I had somehow switched from "lifestyle change" to "diet think."
Alan and I talked and prayed about it today, because he has had problems, too. A little while later, he came up with the answer. Both of us had cut back on our breakfast calorie intake.
By the time I did my morning exercise, I was out of fuel and never got "caught up" with my energy levels for the rest of the day. So I ended up eating more yet still feeling too tired to work as hard as I had been.
That old saying of "Eat like a king at breakfast, a prince at lunch and a pauper at dinner." still makes a lot of sense as a guideline. We increased our calorie intake by just 100 calories at breakfast this morning, and my energy level was better all day!
That having been said, I still fell on my face at dinnertime. We were watching TV, and mindless eating set in again. Oops! Thank heavens that tomorrow is another day, God willing.
