Met with my Plant Based Diet Program group tonight for a special guest appearance and cooking class.
It is extremely motivating and encouraging to hear about the journeys of others. It is amazing and reassuring to know that there is a point of no return. After leveraging the daily journal option of my Fitbit, I started to log my food consumption which… Surprise!!…. is measured by caloric intake. The process of logging food entails not necessarily calorie counting but instead portion counting. For example, instead of a serving of Steel Cut Oats for breakfast, I am logging 1/4 a cup. For 3 days I have been over thinking my dietary choices as they relate to portion/caloric intake. I was reminded at tonight’s meeting to stop!! Enjoy as many fruits, veggies, grains, nuts & seeds as I can. I somehow convinced myself after logging all of my food that I should be concerned about how much I was eating even when eating clean. Ok, backing this bus up again and keeping it simple!
40 minutes of spinning today. Feeling great and all of this energy and activity is leading to more down time. I logged 8 full hours of quality sleep last night. This has not happened since B.C. (Before children) and they are 7 and 11 years old now!
Thanks to the Pro-Activity team for another stimulating evening. It was great getting into the kitchen.
Grateful for good health, family and friends. Thinking of my Mom tonight who is hopefully sleeping right now after a slip on the ice today ending in a painful broken wrist.
