12 September 2016

Day 5 of the worst experiment ever was Sunday and it was by far the worst day. I behaved... Badly. This is what happens when you can't listen to your body because tiny humans are louder than your inner voice. Also tiny humans who are boys are apparently starving all the time because they are constantly grazing. This made me graze... The preteen was at a friends and the husband was mowing hay so it was just us gazers. Also bad. We did go help grandma stack wood in her basement instead of taking a nap because no one else would help her. Oh and my stomach did pay me back after our 4 pm late nap because well we were tired and full from grazing all day. Felt like a stuffed cow that couldn't get up and ended up only having a tiny bit of roast I had been cooking and smelling all day long.

Moral of day 5?? Tiny humans trump inner voice. Next weekend will include backup, duct tape, and absolutely no Amish donuts in the house... Or fudge... Or makings for grilled cheese sandwiches.. Or grandmas cookie jar.. Or um any of that other crap I ate.

So far day 6 started off rocky but now is gong swimmingly thanks to laps in the parking lot that turned me into a puddle of gooop

Day 4 of the Worst Experiment Ever - Goal.. only eat real food when my body signals it's hungry, don't track calories, don't listen to the clock, and above all else.. question my sanity.

I have probably eaten more today than any other day. This is mostly because we were out running around for lunch when everyone got hungry so I had a grilled chicken sandwich and probably what amounted to a small fry before I said Ok I'm satisfied. Not exactly on the meal plan but I managed it pretty well. I'm moving on and just following whatever cues my body gives me from this point forward. Right now it's telling me to nap.... I informed the tiny humans I live with of this and both boys laughed at me.. then told me to be a horsey..

The experiment does seem to be going pretty well. I've been told by just about everyone I know that they couldn't do this. Apparently I'm not the only one that questions my body's sanity. It does seem to know what it's doing though.. I have more energy, my pants don't feel like they are attempting to strangle me to death, I'm more.. mellow?? I haven't screamed at my kids like a crazy woman for the last 2 days, and according to fitbit I'm not as restless when I sleep. It's possible my inner self is an eccentric dingbat that may know more than I've been giving it credit for.

Day 4 or 5 is usually where I crash and burn on any eating ideas I have so the rest of this weekend will be the real test. :)

Today is day 2 of the worst experiment ever. It took me a day but I finally realized that my body has ADHD dingbat disorder. When you wait until you're hungry to eat then you expect to well.. still be hungry by the time you fix something to eat. Nope.. It's like I got distracted by the shiny fork because by the time I made breakfast I wouldn't have called myself hungry. Either my body is a dingbat or it's playing an awesome game of psych. I still ate breakfast.. I also discovered I don't think my hungry will ever signal that it's eaten enough if what I'm eating is bacon. Just sayin.. Didn't eat the whole plate because my husband came in from chores right about then and ate it for me.

Other interesting thingys.. when you're constantly trying to figure out if you're feeling hunger pains you notice you're thirsty a lot more. It's like being hit by the water fairy. Then you pee a lot. Then the nice friendly german guys in the glass conference room across from the womens bathroom notice you and begin to wave. They're a friendly bunch.

I'm not counting calories but it seems like I'm eating less. If I had made a plan to eat low calorie I would have been ravenous by now. But.. I'm not. I'm too busy calling my body a dingbat because it can't make up it's mind if it want's some freaking food or not. I need to remember to look around before muttering "You dingbat." It doesn't go over well when my boss walks by as I say it.

So that was today.. a game of am I or am I not with a body that can't make up it's mind. I'm beginning to wonder if any of those cavemen that I came from starved to death... if eating on hunger cues is a basic human function then my ancestors either starved or died chasing butterflies off a cliff.
