Day 25 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Peaceful Mind

 

Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life.

Day 25 -90

Ugh!!  Have a knee injury so I am not working out.  😦

That is a FrOwN-y FaCe because I really like working out.  It really makes me food good in sooo many ways.

But on the BriGhT SiDe, I have been eating well.  🙂

The meals, at the conference I’m at, have been buffet style, so I have been going for fruits, vegetables, and protein.  Because I am coming off of a couple of rough eating days and want to get right back on track, I am staying away from eating a lot of carbs.  That’s okay, because turns out they are Mr. Right-There foods anyway, so I don’t mind passing on them.   If I did have sweets calling my name, I would plan for them (I may have a donut from Dunkin’ Donuts tomorrow in the airport), but SuRpRiSe, SuRpRiSe!! this girl who loves sweets is not desiring them!  That is a testament to giving myself permission to eat whatever I want as long as it gives peace.  This took me a lot of practice, but I am finally starting to nail it.

This CoNcEpT is HuGe.  I really don’t have out-of-control urges for food anymore because I never feel like I have a mental stock-pile of foods that I am craving, or planning to binge on,

I’ve learned that porking out, for the most part, was due to cause and effect – denying myself of the food I loved resulting in spiraling out of control.

MiRaCuLoUsLy, when I began to give myself the foods I desired (in a controlled manner that gave peace) the effect was satisfaction, closure, and peace.

No more food fantasies!  I love it that my mind is not obsessed with thoughts of foods!

Ahhhh, finally a PeAcEfUL MiNd!
