Whatever it is, I have lots of excuses to revert to my old eating habits...grazing all day on foods that comfortably slide down and offer no nutritional value...each bite decreasing my self-worth and undoing all the good I've been doing.
How quickly, and how easily it is to fall back to those habits.
Yesterday, I decided to get out of it.....quickly, before it becomes who I am again rather than just a blip in becoming who I want to be....I'm not just talking about size....I'm talking about the person I am around food...the person who uses food to cover up feelings instead of the person who deals with the feelings and uses food for nutrition. Am I going to feed my emotions or feed my body?
I want to be the person that feeds my body.
My friend told me about this website. It's the 5 day pouch test. You do liquid protein for 2 days, soft protein for a day and back to the protein every three-four hours after that.
Yesterday I did pretty well....I did have an artichoke at dinner. I'm not going to feel bad about that, because it's an artichoke and not the pasta I fed my family.
Here's what my day looked like yesterday:
and 130g of protein (wow) -- I need to make sure I up my water!
I've also started organizing my life -- blogging about it here
Things to remember:
I am thankful for the job that I do have
My husband will only be gone for two weeks, this is not long compared to what a soldier's wife has to go through. His experience will enrich his life.
I enjoy learning new things and the classes I'm signed up for will be interesting and should not be stressful.
I do not have to be perfect overnight (or ever) and my organizing my life project does not have to be done in one day!
sounds so much better when I put it that way!
Have a great Tuesday Blogland!
