I had an interesting conversation with one of my co-workers apparently I am starting to show some changes. She asked me what I have been doing I told her that I have become more health conscious not to say that I never have been. I just learned how to take better control of my portions and what I eat on a day to day basis. Well as we were talking it led to a lengthy discussion about counting calories. In that moment I realize that I had stopped counting calories for almost three weeks. I was kind of concern that maybe I could be over eating.
I Had to know if I was lucky for me yesterday was a holiday and I remembered everything I ate. I calculated everything I ate and went over about 300 calories. I don’t consider that over eating but if my daily intake is about 1600 went way over. That’s when panic set in for a while I set there worrying about all the work I have done has gone to waste.
Well I did my totals for today and I did not go over at all. I finally realize that it’s ok to sometimes have an off day. Besides most if not all of the foods I ate Monday were nutritious.
I am not giving myself excuses but at least they were good calories. I know my body was thanking me for feeding it properly. I am starting to listen to my body even more, and I realized that if I am full I do not need to eat and if I am hungry I should eat. Except for when I am not hungry but I want to eat that’s when fruit comes in handy. One thing I did not forget to do was workout. I am learning that workingout is a part of my life just like eating properly.
