Yesterday, I went WAY over on my nutritional balances. But you know what, I'm just not guilty.
I'm an on-again, off-again Sparker, I admit it now. Actually, this time around I "relit the Spark" because I woke up one morning looking great, stepped on the scales, and realized that not only was I holding on to my previous success from Spark People, but I'd actually been making gains (or rather losses, of pounds), and it simply made me think, "Wow, I'm doing great and I bet I could do even better with the help and support at SparkPeople!"
So, by knowing that I have already made some lifestyle changes that are sticking with me and that I've had success and been able to manage even when I wasn't meticulously tracking every calorie in and out, I have faith that my body is learning what it needs (and what it doesn't), and that I'm becoming better at listening to it.
So, last night, when I was putting away groceries and my body told me, "You know what, why don't you put off that healthy chicken stir fry you'd planned for tonight, I really want some SOS, and you just got that ground beef so you won't even have to thaw it," I listened. I knew it would throw me way over my calorie allowance for the day, but I made the decision even after all those facts were in.
I didn't feel bloated or overburdened after - and I still have faith that there was something in that meal that my body was missing.
Now, back on track, until my body provides the next update!
