I have been doing this calorie counting app for about 2 months now. I am not using it as a way to diet or lose weight I was just more curious about what I was eating. As an athlete I could eat anything and it didn’t matter. But now as I eat this Greek Honey Yogurt I ponder on why I am eating it….
I’m hungry! And even if it takes up 300 of my calorie intake I will eat it anyways. Because I am one weird eating machine…
Saturday I ate the right amount of calories and I stayed the same weight. Monday I ate not enough calories and I gained weight. And Yesterday I ate too many calories (insert evil laugh, “Mwahahaha”) and I lost a pound. I don’t get it. Even my brother told me I was eating too much for dinner, but I was hungry so I ate it all!
I know it won’t be like this forever, but I still find it odd…the funny part is the app graphs your weight as chart, and mine looks like jagged/vampire teeth…
I know this is a weird post, but it’s what was on my mind at the moment…It’s kinda funny to me. 🙂
I am strangely a highly competitive person. But the sad thing about it is I sometimes am competitive with myself.
Like today at lunch time I had amazing delicious Chinese food,that I had been craving for 3 weeks; but, during my meal, I was three quarters of the way done and the voice of reason said:
“Stop now, because you are content. You can finish it later if you become hungry again.” (Imagine this voice as my angelic side.)
However, there on the other shoulder sprung my highly competitive side.
“No! You want and must finish it now! So, you can proclaim your supreme accomplishment of completion!”
Sadly, I usually have these types of conversations in mind, but rarely do I speak them out loud.
It is ridiculous; I was having a competition based on food with myself.
My competitive side won the match and I finished my meal. I strangely feel like I did accomplish something and I dominated my competitor. But now I get to listen to that angel of reason laughing at me as I sit and suffer through my bloated feelings.
Why do I have to be SO competitive?
Maybe I need to exercise more…
