I think I need to spring for internet at home again....
In the last week I've discovered that sticking to 100g+ of fat and protein is a good thing, but if I'm not tracking I generally don't hit those numbers.
On a rather stupid impulse I decided to test eating bagels at work last week. I thought about it for a few hours and went for it once I was confident it wasn't a *craving*. Within 20 minutes my body felt like it was buzzing, like I'd downed a gallon of Jolt soda, and I had almost instant, palpable anxiety. Didn't sleep well at all that night, felt physically fatigued and bloated all the next day. Realized this was how I felt EVERY day just a few weeks ago!
I was a little worried I'd immediately crave carbs again, but was willing to fight through- surprisingly, no cravings! Had breakfast out with my boy two days later and felt like French toast would taste delicious but was not at all *interested* in actually eating any.
I never thought of myself as an emotional/binge eater, but now that i am starting to heal, the patterns are obvious.
Will have to update my numbers when I'm at a computer, typing without being able to see my whole screen on my phone is too futzy for me!
In 2012 I will find JOY, feel ALIVE, be CONSCIOUSLY CONNECTED to my World and my People, and become HEALTHY!
