My plan for June (I will keep copying this until it is in my brain!)...
No restrictions or targets on Fat or Proteins
No added sugars or flour....yep
8 to 9 veggies with no more than 1 fruit, berries...nope, may have to quit worrying about this one for now
Let the carbs fall where they may
Eat only when physically hungry (tummy growling)..., yes, but I cannot figure out why I am hungry
Eat mindfully...yes, but why am I so hungry lately, and for sweets at the end of the day?
ooo, the doily rug is looking good. I have a couple more rounds and it will be done.
Sleep issues keep me from feeling like I have enough energy to do anything and it is making me feel very sad, I so wish I could figure out the problem. Read Mark's article about sleep yesterday, biphasal. That is what DH does, he sleeps for a couple of hours then wakes up and goes to bed, party animal that he is. I do wonder though, since my witching hour tends to be around 4pm if I wouldn't be better off just taking a nap and then going to bed later. Problem with that is that I don't use that later time for anything useful. Not that I am super useful at 4 either.
The handyman made it by 8! and the garage is done, looks fantastic. He is going to start on the deck this morning, he has to do it in the mornings only as it is too hot later in the day and the sealant will dry too quickly to work with.
Result...259.8 down 1 even with the high calories. But the carbs are pretty low and the protein and fat are reasonable. The sugars are almost all from the dates. Which are thankfully finally gone. I had them with the homemade cream cheese and walnuts.
Yesterday's nourishment was spread out through out the day, with some intake happening about every 3 hours. It felt better than worrying about not having snacks. Lets see how it goes today.
The protein did not keep me out of the kitchen after dinner. I think I need to figure out a small sweet that I can have that will signal my brain that food is done for the day. The Red Velvet tea used to work, but doesn't anymore. May have to go back to a piece of dark chocolate. It would be half the calories I got from the dates and way less carbs and sugar believe it or not!
