Day 70 No Good or Bad*

Rather than label foods, my behavior or myself as good or bad, Spangle suggests reframing by referring to eating choices. By changing language, she says I am taking back my power around food and acknowledging my responsibility for my food decisions. Here are some comments on my food choices from yesterday:

I made a great food choice late last night to not fill up with unneeded calories from shredded cheese!

My choice to have a sangria spritzer after working late did not turn out so well as it lead to me staying up a little late, not being able to sleep in and not getting a more optimal amount of sleep.


*Chapter a Day Streak: Two! I am doing lessons from Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss (100DWL) to help me with my emotional eating

Calorie differential - I burned more calories than I took in yesterday!

    Counselling alongside Spangling and Sparking has got to be life-changing!
    This is OUR time.

    An expression I came across recently was the word 'In-look' instead of 'outlook' - and it was about how we so often look around us, outside of ourselves, to see what needs changing or how to react to things, when the solution is always within ourselves - our attitude, how we respond to situations. Just wanted to share that with you. Good luck with your journey.

    Somehow it makes a difference as how you look at "choices". You make better ones when you know it is a CHOICE! Great blog!
