My body is speaking up
Saturday, January 18, 2014
Last week I tracked mostly each day, but not enough exercise. The last two days I didn't track at all, and definitely overate a few calories. I'm up a pound this week, deservedly so, but I'm not upset about it. More like "Oh, okay, this isn't getting me where I want. How do I correct that." I definitely feel more balanced mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Went out with friends for happy hour yesterday. I don't drink alcohol but it doesn't stop me from having a good time. The sushi restaurant has a $10 special you get an app, sushi roll, and drink. I had green tea, but after a couple sips I stopped. I've had issues in the past with green tea where I lose all depth of perception, I'll walk into walls, drive over curbs, and feel generally drunk! Its been a long time since I've tried it again, but after a couple sips I felt a little light headed. Someone once told me I must have had an argument with the mountain where it grows in China LOL.
I deeply apologize mountain for any offense, known or unknown. And I promise not to drink your tea any more!
After eating 1300 calories mostly consistently for two weeks, it was interesting to feel myself get full before I cleaned my plate. Made me smile inside knowing I'm changing things for the good, and my body is paying attention and now loves this healthier mindfulness, and is going to give me uncomfortable clues when I'm not.
Through January 17: 12 days of perfect tracking, 5 days not. Two pounds down. Endeavor to persevere.
