Audrey did a pos about how to know if your really hungry or not and that has stuck with me. When I think I am hungry, I ask myself if I am wanting veggies or if I am wanting chocolate or salty snacks. I am more aware of my REAL hunger vs. my EMOTIONAL hunger. There really is a difference!
Journaling is key, making sure I am getting enough veggie's, fruits and protein are the most important for me. When I do this I am more satisfied which makes it easier to stay on track! My personal challenge for myself is to get 80 grams of protein in a day. I never realized how much it would help!
My challenge is my emotional eating and focusing on the HEALTH reasons for taking care of my body. I hate when I don't see immediate results on the scale. For some reason, my body takes about a month of really good eating to start showing the results. I can also eat bad for a month and lie to myself that it isn't affecting me until all of a sudden I am up 5 lbs for NO reason :) Darn consequences!!
I have to remind myself that my success is when I wake up in the morning feeling wonderful because I didn't eat so much that my stomach still hurts. It is a successful day when I have done my very best to take care of my body physically and spiritually... no matter what that scale might say!
Have a great week everyone!
