I kind of wish I had someone else to do all of the thinking, and make all of the decisions, so all I had to do was focus on eating, without worrying if I’m doing it right.
Like this morning, I woke up and thought, I’m not practicing today, so I can eat less. That makes sense to me. But, apparently, that’s not how it works.
And how close is close enough? Can I stop at 600? 700? Yesterday I got 762… That’s pretty close to 800, right? Is it an indefinite cycle, like you have to compensate for being over or under previously? Or is each day a fresh chance to just get it right? How fat is too fat? What is normal? How skinny is too skinny? When can I say “I’m tired and just going to go to bed”? Lots of people do that. Why can’t I? How does anyone ever eat cheesecake, or Alfredo sauce, and stuff?
Maybe most folks learn all this from their parents. Maybe I missed something. I don’t know… But it sure would be cool to live with some excessively patient foodie who could be in charge of all the rules.
