Today was to start with a meditation. I got off to a rocky start, but I did get a minute or two in. I have been trying to get it in daily- different times of the day, though.
“Today, be mindful of the quality of food you are eating, and start each meal by taking the first five bites with full awareness. ”
So, tomorrow I’ll be trying to focus on what I’m eating instead of just eating. Maybe it can help me with cutting back how much I eat. I guess I’ll see how easy it is tomorrow.
Day 2 on the pop/energy drink fast was even easier than I thought it would be.
Now, on day 3, I’m adding in junk food. I went grocery shopping today and conveniently left out buying any junk food I can eat. (no gluten free cookies, cakes or anything)
I did load up on fruit- that way I can get my sugar fix on either lightly sweetened tea (I bought iced tea bags) or fruit. I’m hoping doing this will help me both feel better and drop another size (at least)
When I was in high school, I cut pop and within a very short time, lost about 20lbs from that alone. Another time I dropped 15lbs.
Yes, I am doing this solely to try to lose weight (ok, and help my blood sugar a bit- but I believe losing weight can help with blood sugar regulation)
