Hello Everyone & HAPPY MONDAY!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! If you were like me and trapped indoors because of the snow, then you had a chance to catch up on some blog and article reading.
I’ve been doing a great deal of thinking about the way I eat. What’s my eating style? Do I have one? I eat mostly healthy foods and love, love, love learning healthy recipes. This wasn’t always the case and over the last few years I’ve changed how and what I eat to cater to my goals. At one point it was to fuel the muscles I’ve grown on a great training program, another time to lose weight I gained from starting a brand new job, and most times to maintain my weight. I’ve tracked macros, counted calories and carb cycled to feed my body. It can be very stressful, especially around the holidays and social events!
I’m a notorious calorie counter but what has made me feel happy is just eating mostly clean foods and not having to track anything. Usually easier to do when I’m exercising the way I like! With my current injury and not having the ability to really train heavy… my food panic has set in! Do I count calories?…I’m 4’10, I don’t have a lot of wiggle room. Do I cut carbs? Should I have 6 meals or 5 meals now? Do any of these questions sound familiar to you?! Well…I’M WITH YA!
I came across this guest post from Jan over at Sprouts n Squats about Intuitive eating. Needless to say I am intrigued. During this holiday break, I plan to explore this idea! If you have any feedback about your own experience, please let me know!
Question of the day: What’s your eating style? Do you have one?
Make it a STRONG week!! 🙂
