One of my 8 Weeks to Effortless clients, CR, shared these thoughts with me just as she was about to graduate from my care. I think it's worth sharing here!
THINGS I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE LAST 8 WEEKS
High fat and protein meals make me feel satisfied and “even”
My desire to binge has drastically decreased
I was thinking/focusing way too much on food
I understand more how alcohol is affecting my sleep, food choices and overall well being
Desire to drink alcohol has decreased
Fasted workouts are so awesome
Carbohydrates don’t react well with me (amount, type)
I can’t and won’t make a big deal regarding deviations on my diet.
When I’m truly hungry, I absolutely want to eat all the foods on my “diet”. When I don’t I know I’m really not hungry.
Weight is BS. Striving instead to get a “smaller”, more fit/toned/strong body.
Too much exercise is actually a step BACKWARDS for me.
If you’re not feeling it, respect your body by not pushing it.
Bacon is sooo damn good (I did not allow myself to eat for so many years).
Cold brew. Damnnnnn.
I’ve lost 6lbs!! Actually, I should say “I’m a smaller person!!!” cause that’s really what I want. (when I initially completed my intake forms I said I was holding onto an extra 6lbs but when I weighed myself week one- so I could have a reference point- it was actually 11lbs. Oops lol. No wonder my jeans were tight. But I’m so proud that I didn’t weigh myself for 8 weeks. Didn’t want this program to be about that).
My mood has improved
My body is more flexible with meal times
I am more educated on inflammation and the body
When I turned 40 in December, I had a goal to be BAD ASS. At the time, this meant being super fit achieving goals, being the best mom/wife, etc……I’ve taken a long time to think about what I REALLY want.
Here it is: I want to FEEL GOOD and BE HAPPY.
When I have both those things, everything else comes together.
eat.simple has been the best investment I could have made.
