Finding what "clicks" for me!

Thursday, January 10, 2013

It is only a few days since I started my new quest and I have been exercising and eating healthier.... nevertheless, I have to hold on to my small successes to move forward into bigger goals. So I am taking it a step at a time.....

Adding more healthy foods instead of trying to restrict myself,,,, so I am coming from a place of abundance instead of restrictions,,,, which seems to be working for me,,,, so I am making it a point to eat much more veggies... and I keep trying to add them into every meal..... snacks at night are my downfall,,, I love potato chips or tortilla chips,,, or buttered popcorn,,,, so I have chopped up crunchier veggies and am talking time to HALT..... where I figure out whether I am eating because I am Hungry,,,, or Angry,,, or Lonely,,, or Tired.... which are the triggers that seem to cause me to reach for the "comfort" foods.

So now I try to stop to think what the root cause of my eating is,,,, and it helps me stop and make a choice,,,, and since little old me likes to be in control,,,, LOL,,,,, it is an easy concept for me and has been working so far.

Many people who have been successful on this site have talked about something "clicking" for them,,,,, well, here I am trying to find my "click",,,, since we are all unique individuals,,, what works for one does not necessarily work for all, so I will continue trying to find what works for me and go after it.

Have a wonderful evening emoticon

    Hi there! I was so glad to see that you are BACK. Everyone is different, so there isn't only one "right" way of doing things. For example: I have never been a breakfast person, but I know that I need to have something after my morning workout, so I have a protein drink or Slimfast drink. I have also made low fat bran or oatmeal muffins for breakfast because I can also put them in my kid's lunch. Try different things and wait to see what "clicks" for you!
    Happy to see you busy on my "friend feed" again!

    I think that you have the right idea, small changes here and there. I had the same problem with carbs at night. I now eat frozen grapes, or PB and celery. Do what works for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    And you will find you click. In fact it sounds as if you are on your way by identifying your HALT.
