The last post kept me thinking for a while afterwards, so I thought I’d keep going with it.
While being on holiday this past week, I’ve really been able to let my body relax and have been able to take much greater notice on how my body reacts to food, and what is needed when.
The main thing I have noticed is that I get REALLY grumpy if I haven’t eaten… and then of course I’ll eat the first thing I can get my hands on. LUCKERLY I came prepared and have some meal replacement shakes on hand and my boyfriend will quickly make one of these up, otherwise I turn horrible.
Anyways, our holiday daily ritual has been like this
9am exercise (the last few days my boyfriend has even joined me on this)
10am breakfast (yogurt, muesli, banana)
1.30 – 2pm lunch (left overs, or eggs)
6pm beers and nibbles (I’ve been naughty and have been eating potato chips)
9.30pm dinner (burgers, pasta, bbq chicken – my boyfriend is a chef so we have been eating well)
My body has LOVED this. I feel amazing…I even feel like I might be losing weight. Yes I am on holiday and I’m meant to…but I really feel like my body is at its best – and I’m going to try my hardest to keep this eating/mindset going. I really feel like I struggle to control my eating during the week, I’m not sure why, but I seem to need to eat so much more to keep going, even if it’s completely unnecessary. I’ll eat dinner on the train home, and then, just coz it’s there, I’ll eat dinner when I get home. If I’m tired and there’s food, I’ll eat it.
I also feel that my body has enjoyed being active. During the week I’m at my desk all day every day, so maybe I need to come up with ways to keep active during the day. Squat breaks every hour…or star jumps in the bathroom… SOMETHING to keep my body alive – as that’s when I think my eating stays on track.
A few things to keep thinking about that’s for sure…
