I am an over eater and will admit that; as much as I hate to. I had an epiphany the other day. I was enjoying a perfectly sized portion of left overs from the night before. I was satisfied and I wasn’t overly full- I had just fueled my body for the rest of the day or til the next meal. I realized I need to portion out my meals rather that just serve myself a whole heap of food. I must fuel my body, not necessarily feed it.
The differences between Feeding versus Fueling
*I must point out that the information listed below is all from my own finding.*
The act of eating calories. Not necessarily watching or counting the calories but just eating.
How many times have I caught myself doing this? Way too many times. Am I more conscious of what’s happening? Absolutely. I think in the grand scheme of things that in itself is the first step. Since starting the Shaklee180 program I am replacing two meals a day with Shaklee products. Is this helping me keep from just feeding? Yes, most of the time. I’m still human and make mistakes. I have missed a day here and there. It’s a struggle it really is. But I’m learning and to me that’s all that matters.
The act of providing good food for your body. Good food as in wholesome grains, fresh fruits and vegetables; nothing processed.
I am proud to say that since last year I have started getting all the processed food out of our home. It’s been a slow process but even my husband mentioned a couple of weeks ago- “Hmm there’s a lot of organic/non-gmo products in the pantry, that’s kind of cool.” That made me so proud. He has been a great sport about me changing our family’s eating habits and very open to more natural options. Even though he calls me a hippie sometimes LOL
What are you doing to your body? Feeding it or Fueling it?
My update for the Shaklee 180 program is not good. I have gained 4 pounds back. In speaking with my trainer, she thinks I am gaining muscle. I sure hope so! I have been doing a lot of work with kettle bells and honestly- I love it. My face might say something different, but I do enjoy it. I feel so powerful and strong when I’m doing the swings. It’s pretty amazing.
We are actually coming into the last official month of the Shaklee 180 blogger program. Am I sad? Absolutely! This process has been so eye opening for myself and not only do I love the products but I hope to keep buying them and hope that the weight keeps coming off.
