Eating with a purpose not for a solution.
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
I will be honest I have been struggling lately with eating healthy. I have been trying to get back on track for the last three weeks and have been struggling worse than I have ever before. I start off with the best intentions and by the end of the day I have given up on gone to comfort foods.
In the last month there has been some really sad times. I have been using food for a solution to these problems.
There is purpose to eating. It is not for emotional support. It is to fuel your body, give you energy keep you healthy. I need to go back to when I ate for a purpose. I was vegetarian for years. I felt so good and I believed in my reasons. I let that slide. I choose foods for the health benefits not for comfort or even a calorie number.
Back to eating the way my body feels at its best. Starting off vegetarian again TODAY! It works for me. I am stopping counting calories. It makes me focus on the numbers and I never truly feed myself for hunger and learn when my body has had enough. I am still keeping track of food. Still planning ahead. Using portion control and looking p calories with need foods. But I am not being a slave to it.
Today is a new day to start fresh.
