Context cues

It occurs to me, as I’m sitting in traffic, that older teens may be an under-researched factor in middle-aged weight gain. 

I’m stalled out, you see. It could be just me…multiple months of being hungry on purpose takes a toll on the prefrontal cortex, I’m sure. 

But there is a LOT more food laying around my house. Snack food. Quick-lunch components. Desserts, because there are two people to eat them. (B and My Sweetie, that is.)  Seconds

It is hard to manage the pack-oriented part of my brain. It is tiring to be in resist-mode all the days. Maybe half-plates will get easier in a couple of weeks. 

Or I’ll find out it IS just me, brain wandering off for food instead of staying with writing. 

Which discipline is harder?

  1. Is the compulsion to write as innate as the compulsion to eat? I would say that self discipline is difficult no matter what the application. I’m in a position to know. 🙂

    1. True, self-discipline is inherently challenging. Otherwise we’d all do whateveritis, and I wouldn’t crave my WiiFit gym (kokofitclub.com) the way I do. Have you read Your Brain At Work? (https://www.amazon.com/Your-Brain-Work-Strategies-Distraction/dp/0061771295)? I love that book.
      But to answer the question 🙂 —
      For me, they’re both innate…but the eating one shows up more frequently. Hm, maybe more accurately: the eating one shows up more frequently AND when I can act on the impulse. My head filling with words as I drive…harder to act on in the moment -!
