Yes… are you hungry? Embrace it! Are you tired? Embrace it! you are alive! You are working hard! Do not give up! It’s worth it!
Last night… I had already eaten everything I needed and had to have for the day… plus my sugar free chocolate pudding and coffee at night… and still felt hungry! I was tempted to give in and just go ahead and eat… but I realized I had had ENOUGH for the day… and decided to exercise some self control! I don’t eat little… even when I am trying to lose weight… I make big plates of food! For breakfast I have a big plate with tons of sauteed vegetables and 1 egg, plus some cheese and bread, for lunch I have a very good big sandwich that includes avocado and some roasted zucchini on the side, for dinner I try to make it lighter (especially if I indulge with carbs during the day and yesterday I ate too much rice for lunch) but I do eat! and yesterday… knowing how much rice I had had (and that I even had a thin slice of chocolate cake) I knew… it wasn’t appropriate for me to eat anything else… I need to teach my body also… to not be “stuffed” I need to learn to eat to live not the other way around… So… I decided to “embrace the feeling” of rumbling in my stomach… I have to embrace the feeling of being tired after working out too! It’s all part of what I am doing and makes me feel alive and with power over this! In the very moment I feel a little desperate but later, when I succeeded and look back it makes it all worth it and makes me feel I can do this!
