Today's Beck lesson is Prevent Unplanned Eating. All over this lesson is my new favourite phrase "NO CHOICE". So Beck has me pre-planning today, all the food I'll eat tomorrow (and I already did that yesterday for today). Not only am I supposed to step away from unplanned food that wants to jump into my mouth, but shout inside my head NO CHOICE! It works. Really, it's the "what should I eat?", the "I'd like that", the "oooohhh that would taste good" part of food that drives me mad. And I certainly recognize that in myself. When I say NO CHOICE to myself, I feel much calmer...more settled...the food loses it's control over me.
NO CHOICE allows me to take my life back. I like it. I'm practising it while doing my daily exercises, so that when those foods sneak up on me and try to gain control over my will, I'll be able to NO CHOICE them back into submission.
NO CHOICE is my new best friend.

Yesterday I was to write down all the foods I am to eat today. Today I am to EAT them and today is Day 1 of my "diet". I'm supposed to eat, check off that I have eaten only what I pre-planned to eat and then give myself credit for having only eaten those foods. This reminds me of shopping with a grocery list and coming out of the store with ONLY what was written on my list. I throw my hands up in the air and woo hoo out loud when that happens b/c it's such an exhilarating victory!
I wonder if I'll do the same at the end of today.... Anyway, I'm also not supposed to beat myself up to the point of quitting, if food happens to jump into my mouth that wasn't on the list. Oh yes, but I'm also supposed to "step away" so the unwritten food has farther to jump...which may prevent the noshing....sounds fair!
Yep, and I also need to write down what I'm going to eat tomorrow.
So, onward I go.

Does this sound familiar? I always say that when I "pre-plan" things go well for me...apparently Beck thinks this is a good idea too. Although, she is taking this pre-planning to a whole new level. She wants me to pre-plan EVERYTHING I'm going to eat tomorrow, today. Not just for today...but ongoingly.
Today is my "no lunch" day. I've already pre-planned my foods for tomorrow and I tracked them, however, I tracked them on today's date, so I'm gonna havta go back in and re-input them all for tomorrow...oh well, small price to pay for compliance.
Onward I go...smiling.
