Good MORNING everyone!
I hope you’ve all slept great. I’m up, sipping my coffee, getting my day started.
Two over-medium eggs with sourdough toast and a side of coffee (splash of Organic whole milk & honey)
Step Class @ 8:30
Honey greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s with Nana’s Nola, almond butter, and a banana on the side. This held me over for a good 3 hours.
Homemade pizza (leftover) with whole wheat crust, olive oil, garlic, artichoke hearts, onion, and mozzarella cheese + a side salad with romaine, cherry tomatoes, shredded carrots, & a dressing recipe from my Healthy Hits Coaching Salad Cheat Sheet.
This lunch held me all the way from 1:30-7:45 for dinner. I was nice and ready for dinner when it got here, but because I had such a satisfying lunch I wasn’t ravenous.
I wanted to share a little listening to your body bit with you. I had a Client this week, and she was sharing a huge success with me.
She used to feel tempted to overeat at dinner because she’d come home starving from work. She’d try and be really good during the day by having a light breakfast, a small salad at lunch, and sometimes even taking a walk during her lunch break. She decided a few Sessions ago that she was going to choose not to be so hard on herself anymore. So, she started allowing herself to take what she really wanted for lunch, like a full sandwich. She began listening, and started to see that when she ate a bigger lunch during the day, her body didn’t have the same struggle at night. So, in retrospect, what she was doing to “be good” (really healthy small meals early in the day) was actually hurting her and making her feel like she was “bad” later on in the day. When she began really listening and trusting her body that it needed more energy when she was working so hard in the beginning of the day she started to feel more confident in her choices, more energized, and more calm and stable at dinner (when she doesn’t need as much energy).
I love when my Clients share these little success’ with me! Now this Client is feeling a new respect for herself, and she’s even closer to feeling like a normal, intuitive eater. I’m so proud… and I wanted to share this one success with you so that you’ll be inspired to just trust your body today. Our bodies are so smart!
Do you need guidance on becoming an intuitive eater? It is the most freeing way to live.
