Daily Motivation Day 17

Friday, February 08, 2013

Yes, I missed a day but that's okay. I had stuff on the go yesterday and I'm here today. Being online doesn't necessarily mean I wasn't able to maintain my goals!

Imagine calling a friend to offer encouragement during her weight-loss journey. This is G - she's lost so much weight, she's giving away clothes. I'm so proud of her. She faithfully gave up bread, eats breakfast and doesn't eat as much take out.

I eat healthy but have an issue with portion control. I simply eat to much for my level of activity. That's what I don't know how to over come.

    There is the portion control plate which can be misleading. A nutritionest told me to use my palm to determine the main course (protien.) My palm is two times my wife's palm. I was told that satiation would be based on my palm size. I also realize that its is easier to controll the amount I eat by having green tea prior to the meal and eating a piece of fruit or vegetable 20 minutes before dinner. It takes a while for your body to signal itself that it is not so hungry. Learn to pay attention. It will always be a struggle for me so I attempt to make healthier choices and record what I planned to eat to see how it affects my daily plan.

    How do I define my state of health?
- enthusiasm (and courage)
- energy; 2 hours shovelling & walking through snow today was effortless
- clothes fitting; my ski pants & jacket zipped up
- blood levels; I haven't check yet
- outlook; better able to manage stress @ work
- appearance; great hair cut and strong nails
- enjoying workouts; love the opening from yoga
- craving healthy foods; notice the water very much!
