I tried both!
I like the idea of being a moderator; to be able to control myself and enjoy a little bit of what should be consumed with moderation, to be successful at resisting the temptations of indulging in "too much"! I usually can do this, however I find it difficult when I am under a lot of stress. In these circumstances, I find it it easier to be an abstainer!
Inspired by spark friends who recently posted their personal food streak ("Reset detox" and no junk food), I decided to start my "Stay in range" streak over ... again! I gave up tracking food 5 days ago; I was visiting Houston.... taking a break. And, because eating out in restaurants was the highlight of this trip, I decided to take a tracking break and just enjoy. Also, how and why tracking when most places do not offer the nutrition info for their menu? ... The truth is, I ate so much that my belly hurts!!! Being sick of eating is a good feeling, it will help me to get back on track and boost it up a notch - I will try to tackle my dietary vices!
Sugar Salt & Fat !
Here it goes. Until Mothers day (4 weeks), I will:
- stay in range;
- have 8 glasses of water daily &
- week 1: break the Sugar cycle... no sweets, no soda (diet included)!
- week 2: take control of Fat...
- week 3: take control of Salt...
- week 4: no process, just fresh! (Except for dairy products)
For now, I am trying to be successful by being an abstainer. I got rid of most of the temptations with the exception of one box of fine chocolate that I am saving for later, to celebrate the completion of my streak!
My goal: take control of emotional eating and get back to my "normal" weight range - loosing 2lbs/week...
I am also in for the Rise and Shine Challenge.
This morning is a double
: 5k Run and Healthy Breakfast!
100 gr FF Yogurt - 1 pear (diced) and 1/4 C Muesli (total 225 cal) and 4 C water!
I skipped coffee... but I might have one at break.
Lastly - I am doing well on my personal Go the Distance challenge!
