Reflecting upon yesterday I am considering that sometimes things have to happen to remind you that you are better than you give yourself credit for. I shouldn’t have allowed the words of others to drag me down to a place inside myself where I felt defeated and humiliated, that is just not me. I am better and stronger than that.
While this may be a weight-loss journey for my daughter and I, it is also about discovery. It is about recognizing triggers and developing better coping skills. Yesterday, I went without dinner due to stress. The result of my decision was a one pound weight gain presumably from my body going into starvation mode and clinging to reserves. Lesson learned.
I am learning to pay attention to life’s events and how I react to those where food is concerned. Definitely time to take a breath and decompress. Friday is almost
So how did I do today? This morning I ate my traditional gluten-free oatmeal with berries from The Juicy Cafe and a cup of a yogurt, apple yummy something juice. I had a large banana for a mid-morning snack and lentil soup for lunch. I probably should have slipped a small snack in between lunch and dinner but I didn’t. For dinner I had a brown rice bowl with chicken and broccoli.
Overall, I think my choices were pretty good. I still need to find ways to slip in those darn veggies.
