Wow. I donâ€™t know why I canâ€™t find balance in the holidays. Long work hours really affect what I do with the rest of my day. The lack of working out and the ease of finding foods that arenâ€™t perfect for my body is just too tempting. How have I been doing on my goals?
- Veggies at every meal.
Pretty good. However, I have been drinking a lot of green protein smoothies. Iâ€™m also not stress eating veggies, unfortunately. But I recognize when I am stress eating and that is a start.
- 20g of protein at each meal.
Well, with a lot of green smoothies, Iâ€™m doing okay. Iâ€™m just not balancing my full on meals enough. I think this leaves me with a feeling of needing more, even when I donâ€™t. I need to menu plan, not just grab things.
- Cheese in moderation.
Totally doing that. It has been pretty easy to avoid it.
- Think about my hunger.
Not so much. I need to slow down and think. Slow right down. Iâ€™ve stopped asking myself if Iâ€™m full or hungry. Instead Iâ€™ve fallen back into the just eating when Iâ€™m supposed to drill
- Treats and baked goods in moderation.
Yep. Doing that pretty well too, unless it is between 4-6pm. I am feeling guilty even when I have a bit because Iâ€™m supposed to be off the sugar for the Candida, so I have to work on the guilt issue. I need to get the peanut butter out of the house. I need to have cut up veggies easier to reach. An easy fix.
- Sit down at the table.
Um, the diningroom is unapproachable. After next week Iâ€™ll do this more.
- Check that serving size.
Stress eating is mindless eating for me. I need to portion out stuff better. In other words, I need to eat at the table and look at what I’m inhaling.
- Donâ€™t stop working out.
Oops. I tried tonight. I have an advanced kettlebell DVD and uh yeah. I’m not close to advanced. At least it kicked my butt!
- Try to buy more local.
- Be kind to myself.
Complete failure. With the Candida overgrowth Iâ€™ve obviously not been kind to my body. Iâ€™m mean when I eat something that will affect it poorly like sugar or when I stress eat. I need to chill. The only one Iâ€™m hurting is myself, and thatâ€™s just dumb.
Lots to work on which is great. These are goals, and I canâ€™t just make them easy for an ego boost!
