Eat Your Way To Fit Guide is your number one choice in holding yourself accountable. Have you had a bad day and ate something you shouldn’t?
Before EAT YOUR WAY TO FIT, I used to eat Boxed Oatmeal, yogurt with granola, frozen smart choice, healthy choice, salads, premier protein shakes. Canned tomatoes were my favorite, a TON of deli turkey, turkey sandwiches. Pretty much anything that did not require a lot of cooking because I don’t cook.
I didn’t see any results. I used tons of cardio. Honestly was just freaking clueless as to Why I wasn’t happy with my body.
As you read through the Guide while going through your journey, you will learn why it’s not working when you start tracking what you eat.
When you see your daily numbers in nutrition and see how much processed food you are eating.
Is processed food working for you?
It did not for me. So I learned that instant pot has to become my friend. I learned that baking chicken was a better choice than deli turkey. Eat Your Way To Fit Guide is an evidence of how this has helped me through.
I learned bread did not help me stay full longer than rolled oats did. I learned that rolled oats were a healthier choice than a boxer.
Why? Because rolled oats are 0 sodium while boxed is 190.
Just because a boxer is low this or low that, you still have to scan to learn these numbers about your food.
To scan is the lesson you need to learn. The numbers are your answers to your success.
Emotions, such as stress, are not the only triggers for emotional eating. Other common triggers that people report include:
Being bored or having nothing to do is a common emotional eating trigger. Many people live very stimulating and active lives, and when they have nothing to do will turn to food to fill that vacuum.
These are often driven by nostalgia or things that happened in a person’s childhood. An example might be, having ice cream after a good report card or baking cookies with a grandparent.
It is easier to overeat or eat mindlessly when fatigued, especially when tired of doing an unpleasant task. Food can seem like the answer to not wanting to do a particular activity anymore.
Everyone has that friend who encourages them to get a pizza after a night out, go out for dinner or drinks after a difficult day, or as a reward for a good day. It can be easy to overeat when with friends or family.
Coping strategies with Eat Your Way To Fit Guide
The first step that I always talk about is to recognize how often does this happen.
Is it once a week or twice?
After you eat that food to help you, how do you feel afterward?
Does it make the stress go away or do you now feel guilty about it?
Scanning that food into the App is another way it can help you SEE it. I used to eat a TON of Red Vines, I was obsessed and I am not kidding. Anything that hurts my teeth does the trick but it never did the trick when I weighed in on Friday’s or didn’t see progress.
At the end of the day what I learned is that a short moment feels good but long term it didn’t. So now when I want Red Vines, I find it way easier to talk to myself and choose fruit instead.
I will get started by advising you to do your best and try to avoid Salty Foods. If you are planning to get on the scale, this is very essential to you.
If working out is your main goal, remember the goal you set on Monday. When you set a goal, it should be your drive for the entire week. Are you going to MEET that goal or should you go for a walk today because you skipped a workout? There is still time to get in what you missed and avoid what you should.
What protein do I drink? Usually, I take two protein drinks. 1 is a meal replacement, so this is my occasional breakfast. Yesterday and today after eating a lot over the weekend and then a Costco brand got just protein after weights.
If you’re interested in shakeology, let me know. I’d suggest to get 1 bag and make it last. You can as well look for other meal replacements. Just look at ingredients.
Personally, this one has the best ingredients and lasts me 3 hours before am hungry. I’d rather spend the extra $$. Sometimes I even mix both powders to make it last even longer. So I do 1/2 scoop of each.
Let’s talk about the struggles of What to eat
Do you have these thoughts in your day? I used to have them all day. It was so loud. I would have these thoughts while EATING breakfast. Then again at lunch and dinner. At dinner, I used to think about what can I eat now so I can snack later?
The food choice was out of control
Do you let your kids snack after a meal? You guys have to agree that there’s nothing more annoying than “Momma can I have a snaaaaaaaack”? My ears hurt.
Why do our kids want to snack? Have you thought about that? Of course, you have. They want a snack because they didn’t have enough for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They are still hungry and want something to snack on. ￼ You know that.
When your kids are eating breakfast, lunch or dinner don’t you remember what it was like or maybe you’re doing this right now as I am. Urging them to eat their food with, “eat your food, eat your food.”
Well, this is exactly what I want you to focus on. Eat Your Food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eat from the list so you’re not having food noise and ensure to eat Whole Foods. Make sure that it is enough especially at dinner time.
You won’t feel the “hunger “ for a snack
Some of you shared with me how badly you want to get fit and I’m right here with you. You have accountability, support, AND most importantly a healthy list of foods.
If you’re going off on your own, the road will be longer. That’s just science, math, and something that I did not create. God did.
What will you focus on today to avoid eating food that is not on the list?
Happy Monday! How was your weekend?
Have you had before a Monday that reminds you of your weekend that was full of treat meals? What starts with just a single bite might turn into daily behavior. Oh well, life goes on. What of Eat Your Way To Fit Guide?
You might have missed a workout Sunday. You might have allowed your children to have ice cream. The ice cream has so much crap in it that we can’t read them. No idea what it would be and so I’ll never buy unknown ice cream again.
To kind of catch up with the diet. I strongly recommend having protein shakes for breakfast, lunch. Personally, I prefer having ground turkey for snack & dinner.
