Mental reset

Friday, September 07, 2012

I gave my scale to my husband and told him I only get to use it once in the next month and a half . &&I made my caloric goal yesterday! *Squeee* I am not big on fasting for detox, if it works for you, great! But I cant do it. I opt for low calories with daily increase for my detox because its my time for physical, mental, and emotional reset. By restricting my calories to 1/3 of what a normal person needs I have to put a lot of thought and planning into what each meal will consist of, and guess what I don't waist a single calorie on a potato chip! I had coffee, oatmeal, green tea smoothie, cucumber salad, grapes, fresh asparagus soup, and black bean mushroom sliders.
I must admit that dinner time was the worst temptations when the husband said 'oh well, what would 200 calories hurt?' as he sat eating nachos, I know he was just tempting me. I gave in to the thought of a nice piece of bread with butter to go with my soup. I snapped out of that real quick and simply explained my crazy logic about regaining control. I set out to eat a certain low number of calories and I was going to finish. That's the mental reset.
The bonus is today I am adding 100 calories to my intake. Today I can have that second helping or an extra snack, or a banana. In just 9 more days I will be eating my regular healthy amount of calories, I will have regained my mental strength and relearned the proper way to fuel my body, large nutrition, small-medium calories.

My second blog today will be a few steps for healthy eating and detox that work for me. Just to share.
