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!

    great blog .. loaded with info and inspiration ..
    thanks for the encouragement
    I too have been fooling myself ..
    seems I think if I don't drink I can eat what ever I want .. silly how the mind can confuse and convince the body we are entitled to some kind of coping crush .. if not booze then ok chips and chocolate .. french fries and popcorn ..
    silly me ..
    my poor body wow
    I would bet my digestive system is saying ... "oh dear lord what is she going to send us now to have to deal with ?? .. we are overworked and haven't had a break for weeks now .. !!"

    I needed a kick .. a boost ... a new perspective ..
    white bread got me about a week ago that began a totally out of control mind set .. my last meal was dine out for Chinese .. I ate like a lumber jack that had been in the forest without food for a week ..
    naturally I didnt sleep well because of the overdose of food ..
    your blog couldn't have come at a better time ..
    setting my intentions today while writing my abundance cheques ..
    perfect time to align all of me ..
    body and spirit ...
    new moon .. new energy ..

    wishing you every success ..
    thanks again

    AWESOME! I had never heard of this book but I'll have to check it out. I know my mindset is what kills me, especially when I'm stressed out or my anxiety ticks up. Congrats on the AF 236 and staying there! Almost to a year, you've got this! Happy Friday
