Do you know how to get back to your weight loss goals after a day of eating too much? Have ever had a day in which you eat too much carbs or too much fast food? I will share with you some of my own details.
A few days ago, I found myself eating more frequent and larger portions of carbs than I usually do. I couldn't put my finger on why I was doing it. Maybe I was going through some unidentified stressor or maybe I was simply tired of trying to keep to my own wellness goals. In the past when I failed to keep my own weight loss goals or failed to cut down on my food portion and eat more veggies and fruits, I would get mad at myself. I would also get into a bad mood and become very unfriendly to those around me.
However, when this happened a few days ago, I didn't get mad at myself and I didn't lash out at those around me. I just told myself that I had just an eating too much day. It was epic! I ate about 10 slices of bread with 2 fried eggs, Each slice of bread was toasted.
Luckily, I didn't completely lose it. I just decided to get back on track the next day. I started by doing intermittent fasting the next day. I didn't eat food till 1pm. I skipped breakfast , but I drank coffee with green tea. This got me through the morning. I enjoyed the freedom of saying "No" to others, when they asked if I wanted to eat anything.
I drank plenty of water and did my simple non strenuous exercise. I did my 100 jump ropes, ten push ups and stretches. I felt more energetic and less stressed out. I felt recharged and more able to make decisions and take action that helped me improve my health and wellness.
The interesting thing that I noticed was that since my interactions with others was more positive, I was less stressed out, more confident, and had fewer cravings for pleasure foods like sugar and carbohydrates( Carbs). This helped feel more healthy and fulfilled today.
Please let me know how you deal with your "own eating too much day", and if any of the strategies and tips that I have shared with you will help yourself and your wellness.
