Today I did something I have been trying to do for so long. I listened to my body! And I mean...REALLY listened. And I feel AMAZING.
This afternoon I got back from my class and I made myself a little bowl of cottage cheese, kashi go lean crunch, and a little bit of cinnamon (it was so good yesterday, I just needed to again!)
I ate it nice and slow, trying to "sava the flava"! (I'm such a loser!)
HOWEVER after I finished I realized that I was still hungry! ED was telling me that I had enough- I mean, this was my snack yesterday and how could I POSSIBLY eat more than yesterday right? WRONG. I poured myself another little bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch and gobbled it up! AND THEN I realized that I only had a little more cereal left, so of course I had to finish it! and I did. =] Isn't it funny how we always manage to eat more when it comes to the end of a box of cereal, or jar of PB?
After my snack I had to run to see my dietitian, call my therapist, go to nutrition class, get dinner (not a good selection day), and then I went to the gym. Following my posts title today- I listened to my body. I had a harder cardio than I normally do, and then did some strength training on the mats. But I tried to pay attention to what my body was telling me, and when I found myself getting tired--I stopped. I didn't overdo it at all, I did JUST enough.
I came back from the gym famished, and knew I needed to eat something before I volunteered at the homeless shelter until 10:30, so I snacked on an apple and decided to try my chocolate peanut butter fiberfull bar!
Ahh, it was fantastic! I feel like I never give negative reviews here! It was very peanut-buttery, and very sweet...but that's exactly what I needed. I do have one complaint though. On the way to the shelter I felt my stomach rumbling, and realized that I was STILL hungry. As tasty as it was, it didn't hold me over for any more than 30 minutes. FiberFull bar? Should be a Fiber-NotSo-Full Bar. =]
I have a question for you guys though. Would you prefer I respond to your comments on my page, or on your page? I just feel like if I reply on here some of you never read what I wrote!
Have a great night you guys! And remember to Listen to your Bodies! Rest when you're tired, eat when you're hungry, and give your body all the love that it deserves.
