Give yourself a break. Rest, don't push. You have a valid excuse to not work too hard, especially if you aren't feeling well. At most, go for a nice long walk, just to ease your mind, and stretch your legs.
My best advice for snacking, and this goes for all of you, is to go out and do some serious shopping for healthier but delicious snacks.
There are so many options nowadays. With all the health consicous, low fat and organic stuff out there, it should be fairly easy to pick up some baked chips, or veggie chips, or natural oreo cookies... or organic chocolate chip without all the trans fat or refined sugars, or preservatives.. Some of them are a good source of fiber, even!!!
ie., the new Fiber one bars--- oh my goodness!!!!! yum yum yum!
Try Trader Joes, or Whole Foods, or the new Elephant Pharm. Go to your local health food store. Invest in YOU. Remember you are changing your life now.
So buy what you know you like or 'NEED' but just choose carefully! Be a saavy shopper. You don't have to hate this diet, becasue it's not a diet.
You are goiong to love yourself more now and never feel deprived!!!!
Just start making smarter food choices but keep in mind portion control. You can do this!
and enjoy snacking....
As fo me, I NEED 2 cookies after I put my son to Bed. I need my tea and TWO cookies. Why? Cuz after one cookie, I'm going for another. Then the bag closes and is put to bed, too. Hey, with a little effort I finally found a natural product without refined sugards (sweetened with Juice) and organic..and only 120 cals for 2 cookies. And they taste sinful!
I also found some veggie chips that taste awesome and they claim that one ounce is the equivelant of a half serving of veggies! That's nuts!!! But hey, my son's into them. Remember what you do, will impact those around you, too.
The world is changing. Everyone is going healthy and organic. The suppliers are responding. YIPPEE! It couldn't be a better time for you to find some incredible snacks and food that are more "clean" and simply delicious.
So girl, get out and get some fresh air. Then curl up to a good movie with your favorite NEW snack you find today.... Then tell us about it.
:) Me happy. Elephant Pharm is the new bomb in my life! They offer free yoga classes everyday!
You see what's happening here? YES!
