Month: April 2015
I go grocery shopping once every two weeks. Yes, it’s true. I do not step foot into a grocery store (if I can help it) but twice a month. Also, I avoid the nightly question of “What’s for dinner? And do we have the ingredients?” It’s one less thing to stress over at the end of the day. You, too, can plan healthy meals, shop the sales to save some money and feel like you’re doing something good for your family while making your life a little easier.
If you don’t have time to read all 4 parts of this series, here is a snapshot of some of the key lessons I learned about intuitive eating. I am happy to report I finally broke free of the dieter’s mentality and still manage to fit into my clothing! It’s a happy place to be.
I once heard excess weight is not about what you are eating but what’s eating you. To become an intuitive eater, I must first acknowledge the fact I cope with feeling bored or anxious by eating. I had to find ways to cope with these feelings in a different way than heading toward the kitchen. Truly, my hope is my daughters will sidestep the diet/weight trap I feel every woman gets tripped up with at some point. Read on to learn more.
Last week you learned about my personal history with food, eating and weight. I must say, I am humbled and grateful for the feedback I have received. I am not alone in the journey to find peace within myself and finally put an end to the internal war to achieve and maintain the “perfect” weight. There is no such thing. So, moving on… here is part 2 in this 4 part series.
