The Simple Diet - Day 116 - Listening to my Inner Child
Friday, May 04, 2012
Okay I have been taking the time this week to listen to my inner child and learn about her wants & needs. She is quite outspoken about her wants and she and I have had several discussions about what is a legit want and what is total BS. Most of her wants have centered around food for so long so convincing her that she does not need all the garbage food has been interesting to say the least. She is currently pairing up with my Inner Goddess and I think her wants are shifting.
The last few days I have been re evaluating where I went lax with the plan. I am looking at my portion control of fruit and veggies. I really need to teach my body/stomach to be okay with smaller portions so instead of having double servings I am going to scale back a little. I am not concerned about the calories rather I need to learn about true hunger or hunger from boredom. If I continue to eat double/triple/quadruple portions of veggies while not unhealthy it is not giving my stomach enough time to signal my brain that I am full, repleat, satisfied.
It is amazing how much we can learn about ourselves when we have a speed bump to address. I am just glad that I am listening to my body and it has sure helped to read others blogs this last week. I am gaining strength from my friends. Thank you so much for being who you are.
The last week has been a rough one for my son so I am going to try and take him out for some fun tonight since his sister is on a trip for band/choir. If his best buddy is available perhaps we can go bowling.
