My Progess

Friday, February 03, 2012

Yesterday I continued to eat intuitively, messing up on two separate occasions. Overall, I feel good about yesterday. Where did I mess up? I ate a donut. I was truly hungry, but I know I can't eat a donut on an empty stomach, which probably says my body cannot handle donuts. I felt like throwing up when I was done. Afterwards I had a cup of tea with coconut oil and that really helped me not to have low blood sugar feelings later when I did get hungry. Usually if I eat sugar on an empty stomach, I get ravenously hungry at my next meal and feel light headed, like if I don't eat I'm going to regret it. Anyway, when I felt that nauseous feeling, I really let myself sit in the moment and feel it. I wanted to make it go away by eating something else, but I really made myself sit with it. I think this exercise will really help me remember what my body can and cannot handle.

My other incident was ice cream at night. This is my typical flaw. I ate a little too much. I didn't want to be sick or anything like that. Ice cream doesn't do to me what donuts do, but I felt like I could have eaten less. As one book I read has said, I will just "observe and correct".

There were definitely good things. I really asked myself if I was hungry before I ate. I enjoyed my food and I generally felt good about the day. It's well into the week I promised myself to do this and I think I'm making progress.
