I am a former figure competitor who is used to chronic cardio, lifting weights for an hour six days a week, 6-7 small meals a day with starches, legumes, dairy, wheat, measured out portions etc......during this time I found myself always hungry, always watching the clock for my next meal time, binging on my "cheat" days and just all out feeling tired, miserable and unhappy. A girlfriend of mine recently started Crossfit and Paleo. After talking to her I decided to try this stuff out. I'm on day 3 of the 21 day Challenge and honestly a huge part of me feels free! BUT I do also still have part of the mind frame that I should be working out 6 days a week and eating 'X' amount of calories. I would really like to work on having intuitive eating skills and not feel guilty about not doing chronic cardio and being in the gym 6 days a week. Anyone have any advice or encouragement on this topic? Thank you!
