The other day Ryan told me something in conversation that really stood out to me. She said we need to eat based on the way we want to feel right now. Basically, we can’t judge everything based on its calories, whether or not we want to lose weight, etc. That will make us crazy! We have to eat to be out healthiest, happiest right now.
I usually stick pretty closely to this, but I’ve been fighting with a few extra pounds and my eating patterns have suffered. I’m thinking about those extra pounds too much. So yesterday I took Ryan’s words to heart and just ate what would make me feel great!
All I’ve been eating for breakfasts are English muffins with AB so I switched it up with naner oats topped with cinnamon, flax and AB. Throughout the day I had a veggie-packed salad with hummus and balsamic dressing, a homemade larabar (these things keep me full!!) and an orange and apple.
I also had several unpictured handfuls of mixed nuts at work that left my belly upset. My body always seems sensitive to particular nuts Anyone else?
On my drive home from work I tried a Kardea Nutrition Bar is chai spice. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious this was! I’ll elaborate later
For dinner I had Sweet Shepherd’s Pie with steamed carrots and an unpictured strawberry fruit pop I was pooped from the long week so David, the dogs and I hung out in front of the computer with hulu and headed to bed at 10:00 p.m. Watch out- we’re pretty crazy!
Do you eat based on a goal, based on how you want your body to feel now or do you not really think about it?
