I am approaching week 7 of my diet, healthy eating purposeful eating journey.
I am eating intentionally. Sounds strange, but it is the only way I can describe my recent “dieting” technique.
And before I eat, I consider what sort of fuel my body needs. It has actually worked brilliantly! Not just for weight loss, which it has definitely helped, but mostly for my sanity. I think about what I eat more, but think about eating far less.
And I don’t cheat, because I would only be cheating myself, which seems self-destructive.
It has been pretty revealing to track and consider eat bite. Not just for my eating habits, but for my life in general. I am sure I will blog about this more, but have hesitated because I don’t want to get stuck in a race to a number. Because it is not about that.
And how I have come to love apples. They are delightfully sweet, and filling and provide a little energy kick in the late afternoon.
If only I could get my hands on some Harry and David pears….mmmmmm
