I’m really glad I posted last night about Intuitive Eating. It’s really changed my attitude towards what I’m eating, when I’m eating, and how much I’m eating. I’ve tried really hard today to listed to what my body needed. I usually get a hunger pain around noon, and I usually put it off because I’m so slammed with work that I don’t want to put the work aside to focus on me. But I felt hungry today at noon, and I put eveything aside to go make myself a veggie burger sandwich on a bagel thin. It totally hit the spot.
However, just 5 minutes ago, I remembered there were Reese’s cups in the office somewhere, and for a minute, I thought about finding them. But then I thought “is my body telling me that’s what it needs right now?” And you all know the answer was “no”, so I went back to my office and started back to work. I looked at my water bottle and told myself I would have to drink 2 of my water bottles before I let myself indulge in a sweet. Well, I probably won’t even be in the office when I’m done with my second bottle of water, and I won’t be tempted anymore.
Well, there’s more snow on the way. Joy! Do you hear the sarcasm in my typing? I hope you do. As of right now, we’re expected to get 4 inches of snow, but who knows if we’ll get more. I was hoping to go to the grocery store tonight to pick up a few things, but now I’m not looking forward to it because of all of the crazies who need to stock up on everything before a snowstorm.
I plan on going to the gym tonight to either ride the stationary bike or do a speed workout on Tread. Do you think I should do a speed workout during my taper?
