Writing My Autobiography Thru Eating

Yet again, the fiscal and physical worlds overlap. Clever Dude’s post “Writing Your Autobiography Through Spending” details how every time you write a check or use your credit card, you are writing your autobiography.

“Recall how you spent your money through the years and you’ll probably be able to match up the stuff you bought with what you were going through in your life at the time.”

I am writing my autobiography through eating and exercise. Every food or workout choice I make is directly related to where I’m at in my life. When I look back through old food journals, I know exactly what was happening at that time.

  • If I note that I did 45 minutes on the VersaClimber, I recall that I was living with friends after my divorce and going to the 24 Hour Fitness on Cheyenne, probably feeling somewhat down but trying to stay on track with my lifestyle change.
  • If I list Jack in the Box jalapeno poppers, I remember that was I stressed out from the challenges of online dating. 
  • If I list grape tomatoes and apples every day, I know it’s a recent entry because I’m in my clean-eating phase, feeling good about myself and my health and trying to take things to the next level.

Think about how you’re writing your autobiography through eating and exercise.

  • Do you like the story you’re writing?
  • If not, how would you change it?

Spend some time considering that, and you may find that, when you look back next year, you’ll have been eating and doing some unexpected things.
