Day Twenty Two
I feel tired today BUT much more focused on what I plan to do today. I am going to go get my hair done so I am going to go prepared. I will be working out this evening. I will be bringing the carbs back in more today but sticking to strictly clean choices of my food list.
So far so good. I am still feeling a little munchie. Almost like a withdraw symptom, my body is now confused and thinks it needs higher starches for energy. It wants a quick fix. It isn't just our mind that desires that, when were off hormonally as a result of food it gets confused too. So it is important to take a minute and feel what we are feeling and respond in a more effective way. Our body is trying to communicate. So with the muchies I want to ensure I am super hydrated so tons of water. I clearly have a desire for sugar so I am not going to deny my body but going to give it low glycemic options like sweet potatoes and berries to satisfy the need without the insulin spike.
I had a great day. I felt awesome in my workout and properly fuelled for it. I actually started to shake those munchies as I responded better to my body requests. I got this and feeling mentally a lot more energized and relieved because my body is happier.
I want to control how I feel and that is awesome. I will not let food control that. Food is my friend, my was of life and a need. I want to choose those that want to help me. Just like any relationship. We want to surround ourselves by those who build us up and make us feel good. I want to have that relationship with food. I do not want to fear it or resent it . I choose to have a healthy relationship with it and make the choices that will satisfy that relationship.
