I don’t know if it’s the weather (it’s raining) or my hormones or the fact that it’s Moan-day, but I’ve had this uncontrollable urge to eat, eat, eat all morning.
I used to really freak out when my body ‘betrayed me’ like this. I’d think that I wasn’t suppose to be hungry, and I was being weak or lazy by giving into my hunger cues. So many women get MAD at themselves when they eat more than what they "should," whether its because they’re hungry or bored or the food just looks really, really good.
YOUR BODY IS NOT YOUR ENEMY. Gosh, I wish I had figured that out a few years ago. It’s OK to eat more on a random day just because. Beating yourself up about it is NOT OK. Don’t feel the need to apologize or justify it…. it is what it is. Be kind to yourself!
On that note, I picked my way through the morning, snacking on an orange:
A few dried baby pineapple:
And a handful of cereal.
Lunch was what finally hit the spot, though:
I used a whole wheat bagel to make a pizza bagel. It was so soft and gooey — almost like a deep-dish pizza! Plus a side of broc.
I think I’m finally satisfied!
How are you kind to yourself? I truly try to never beat myself up about food choices. I used to do that for so long, and it’s so counterproductive and downright mean. If I don’t love myself unconditionally (my worth is not based on my calorie intake!), who will?
