Fruity bootys, i have missed you all so much.
So, i have still yet to get back on the banana wagon
TODAY i have done well all day. i dont want to go back to crap food anymore i feel sick and it doesnt get me anywhere except farther away from what i truly want!
ive been watching loads and loads of videos on youtube from megan mcdonnell, kristina, josh, chris randall, freelee, just everyone i aspire to be like with the 811 lifestyle.
right now i am sitting here in stomach ache turmoil. i made a recipe i had never had to stray away from bananas because i want some variety (i am hoping more variety in my day will help me get back on track better). mangos+scallions blended with cucumber slices to dip. i of course am not blaming the fruit, but i have such a bad stomach ache! i hope it passes....my head kills as well.....i felt so amazing after my 12 nanner smoothie with raspberries. then i ate this and i feel crappy! maybe i ate them too close together?...or maybe i havent drank enough water. i am on my second liter now. hoping it makes my stomach ache vanish, maybe its gas...
anyways, after watching one of megan and josh's recent videos on cooked food cravings, it really hit home. i took out my iphone and put all of the tips in my notes so whenever i get that craving or urge i go right to the list and answer all of the questions and think of the tips. heres the list i put in my phone, it was very helpful when i was stressing over my cravings and maybe it will help others! and of course, watch megan and josh's video!
1. Does my body want THIS (food ur craving), or more CALORIES in general?
2. Have i eaten ENOUGH cals today?
3. Notice everything you're feeling when you are craving.
4. Love and happiness from food you are craving can be found WITHIN
5. Be aware of your OPTIONS!
6. Focus on what you want the food to do for you, focus on your GOALS!
7. What is really IMPORTANT to u?
this list helped me so much and the video was the reason for it! im so determined to get back on this 811 wagon because when i was on it i never felt better. its what i want, and that desire is bigger than any "satisfaction/comfort" i could get from any crap food.
later banana heads! <3
