See Ya Later Scale!!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Breakfast looked a little like this today… GOOD OLD TRUSTY! Egg whites, 1 egg, turkey bacon with green beans. On the side, wheat toast with a little garlic infused olive oil. YUM! I love toast…

*Quick Tip for Garlic Olive Oil– Chop up a few garlic cloves, throw them in a sauce pan (medium heat) with a tablespoon of olive oil. Let them turn color and turn the heat to low. Add a half cup more of olive oil and let the garlic do its thing. Take it off and let it cool. It gives the olive oil a great flavor. Sometimes I add hot pepper flakes too!

I’m so excited. This weekend I had the opportunity to dive into my Intuitive Eating book and it is such a good read!! As you know I’m on a mission to improve my relationship with food. 🙂 I’ve started by taking a break from some of my counting tools. Thats right the tools I’ve depended on for the last few years.

Now don’t get me wrong! I think there is a definite time and place for counting. For me currently, it just isn’t that time. WooHooo, that’s a good thing. I’ve deleted MyFitnessPal app and threw my scale in the closet …under the tools. I’m not lifting that box! 🙂

I’ve started trying to pay attention to my body’s cues. Am I hungry? How hungry? Am I full? How full? It’s so interesting to listen to my body because I’ve ignored these signals for quite some time… and get this...I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW I WAS IGNORING THEM. So I’m growing and learning. It will take time I’m sure!!

I hope you all have a beautiful day.

What do you put on your toast? 🙂

Stay Strong

  1. Woo!! LOVE it, girl! Breaking up with the scale and weaning myself off counting calories was one of the best things I ever did. I used to spend HOURS a day meal planning and plugging numbers into those fitness apps to make sure I was eating “perfectly.” Garbage. Not only was it so time consuming and stressful, but I’m pretty sure my health suffered because of it. It’s definitely a little tricky in the beginning, but so totally worth it. Good luck! And if you ever need to chat, don’t hesitate to hit me up!

    • Thank you so much Amanda!! Yes getting up and not weighing myself this week has been a little strange, in a good way. It’ll be nice to get some of that time back that I spent counting. It’s super reassuring that I’ve got some support. You’re awesome!!:)
