Intermittent Fasting and The Always Hungry Solution
Friday, April 05, 2019
Listening to this book now and it's re-affirming what I know... We are 100% responsible for our choices, decisions and LIFE!
What we choose from moment to moment determines how our day will go. yesterday was rough with my daughter... and I ended up emotional eating as a result (even though I was so really tempted to drink - I did NOT break or come out of retirement - Day 236 AF).
What I chose was food for comfort and I know this is also not the solution. So I'm taking 100% responsibility for making changes TODAY. Brian Tracy (the author of the book) speaks to how we must shift out of the negative space and bounce back - which is a practice I do and have come a long way!
There's no time like the present - IF (Intermittent Fasting) today following that binge with my first meal at lunch time today. I will also try some longer fasting days (24 to 36 or 48 hours). I start The Always Hungry Solution on MONDAY - starting Phase 1: Conquer your cravings. For two weeks, you ditch grain products, potatoes, and added sugars to jump-start weight loss. Calories should come from 50 percent fat, 25 percent protein, and 25 percent carbohydrates. Fresh fruits, green vegetables, dairy products, and a bit of dark chocolate are all A-okay. Here's a full article about this way of eating (calling it a "Do-it" instea of a "diet") www.wellandgood.
I will stay on this phase until I reach my goal of reaching the weight I need to be at to get my grant funds back.
Then I will switch to Phase 2 and 3 for life!
Nutrition is going to be my KEY shift and focus. Today is a NEW Moon and time to set intentions and goals... and maybe even create a new vision board!
This was my last one (created in January)...
Wishing you all a HAPPY Friday!!
This afternoon is my workplace social bowling outing event and then travel tomorrow/Sunday for an 80th Birthday Celebration! I hope you all have a great weekend!
