The universe keeps speaking to me and I am compelled to listen.
For the past two days I have gone back on a diet. I have tried to shift my macros to 33/33/33 at each meal which means trying to get in more protein. As I am still not fussed about eating meat, and LB crunch is out of stock, I have been whey eating protein powder. Yesterday I had Surg3 before and after the gym because the 'diet' said I should. It is not working for me. I have digestive issues (smelly bottom burps) and I was hungry all day.
Then I read two interesting blogs yesterday - Sam and Skwigg have both found a way to eat healthy and stay lean. Both of these ladies have taken the direction I would like to go and it has worked for them. I just need to be brave enough to take the plunge.
SO, for now (until I decide to do something else again entirely) I am suspending the BDS process for a few days at least. I will try to blog each day, but calorie counts will not be reported. I am once again going to take small baby steps towards trusting myself and my instincts.
I need to give myself credit for the fact that I am a mature, intelligent woman who knows the kinds of food that make me feel energised and happy. I will not eat junk food continuously if I take away a structured diet. I like clean food. I will attempt to listen to my hunger and honour it rather than ignore it. I know I have tried this before without success but I am ready to try it again.
