Amazing how some days healthy eating and living can happen so naturally! I don't get many of those but when the hormones and everyday life are harmonious it just happens. If most of my days could feel like this, I would be one healthy, fit individual. It's funny how on days like my day today I envision that person I really want to be.

The hungries did not visit me today. Yay!
I actually craved fruit and yogurt and cottage cheese and cabbage and water( not all together)....? I made praline bread pudding for a special occasion and was satisfied with 3 bites just to taste....?
I did not have obsessive thoughts about food, food, food.
I was out and about and busy with little things but never fretting that I may be hungry and not have the right food ready or available. ,I actually was hungry and drove 5 miles out of my way to buy cottage cheese for when I got home. I ate it. I enjoyed it, but did not binge on it.

If I could just understand how and why these days are so easy and others just as difficult!?!?

I keep asking myself , "How do I prepare myself for those hard days?"
How do I overcome and have more and more days like today?

I keep searching, reading, praying, sharing, trying. I keep Sparking.
Thank you to all Sparkers and special thanks to the friends I have made here that I revisit regularly for support, motivation, encouragement, empathy, inspiration...
And so many more that I happen on to blogs and posts from feeds and mutual friends.

Keep Sparking!

    I find those "days" come for me more often when I plan my food out for the day and I am motivated to stick to the plan.. however.. the best laid plans do not always work for me either and there are days when I could eat anything in sight!! I wish I could figure it out ,too.. I think Remy is correct that AWARENESS of the fact you have these days is an important step in managing them. emoticon Peggy

    I agree too! I LOVE days like that! Today I was just hungry so I ate a couple of extra things tonight but when I downloaded my Bodybugg information and realized that I've burned 3000+ calories yesterday and even so far today I realized why. Didn't really go over that much when you consider that. You can do it! Keep on rockin!

    Agreed! Having the same kind of day, here... Monday, I was fighting cravings like crazy and today it's no big deal... I think just being aware that you have these different days is good preparation.
