Good news, bad news.

Well, I'm back to running, and I started doing push-ups today. None of this is triggering, which is awesome. And it's getting easier to run, which rocks!

I'm losing sight of intuitive eating, and am instead reverting to permissive eating without any compensating via dieting. So, while it's good that I am not starving myself, I'm not listening to myself, either. It's been an awfully stressful couple of weeks at work.

Any ideas on how to talk myself out of permissive eating, without creating a feeling if deprivation?

  1. You know, for now I have come to the conclusion that I may not ever be one of those people who always eats "good for me" food and makes statements like "this cookie is way too sweet for me" or "these potato chips just taste like grease". Ha. I do occasionally have times like that now, but can't see it for the rest of my life. So I have to make peace with the fact that I still sometimes want to eat a Pop Tart or bbq potato chips or Cocoa Krispies. When I'm longing for some food that isn't exactly healthy, I try to work it into my normal day. I know measuring and weighing food isn't exactly intuitive, but I do it anyway. I've been longing for some Lay's Caroline BBQ chips lately. I bought some and will measure out one portion to eat with one of my meals. I'll eat them slowly and mindfully and savor them. I'll put away the rest, knowing that I can have more the next day if I want, but it would really be best for my overall healthy not to eat more today.

  2. Interesting! See, that's where I'm stumbling, is with the mindful part. Or, I think that's PART of what's missing.

    I'm at the point where I never even think about "good" or "bad". Sometimes I will think, "Hmm...I haven't had any protein yet today. Does that sound good to me right now?" or something like that. I think that's different.

    I would like to learn more about MINDFUL eating! Any resources?
