Still working toward balance
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Literal/physical balance and metaphorical/psychological balance have been a challenge for me for as long as I can remember. (I can't ride a bike, balance poses in yoga are difficult, and I am completely crazy.)
I went a bit off the rails again yesterday with chocolate, exactly one week after my last gorge. It felt less frantic, but still desperate (emotionally).
This morning my stomach growled and I realized I haven't felt PHYSICALLY hungry in a while - like several days. I have been eating according to appetite rather than hunger.
On a more positive note, I noticed a visible change in my abs this morning. I haven't lost any weight in the last 2 weeks, so this is a shift in the balance of muscle and fat. THANK GOODNESS FOR YOGA.
If you need me, I'll be over here reminding myself that hunger won't kill me, but I don't need to starve myself either.
Then I'm going to practice my tree pose.
