I’ve had a couple of Christmas parties this week, plus it’s my 50th birthday next week, and I’ll be away, so people are celebrating around me lots at the moment.
I haven’t had perfect eating for sure, but I have used plans, and working through my AD when I can. So I do feel I have tried to improve my eating this festive season.
The side effects of over eating have been hugely obvious, after not over eating for a few weeks and feeling very well mentally and physically.
1. Bloated and uncomfortably full tummy.
2. Not sleeping well.
3. Tired and sluggish
4. Giving myself a hard time psychologically afterwards
I really believe I can use this as great learning to help stick closer to the ‘bottom of the mountain’, as now I can
CLEARLY see what it’s like to move up the mountain and I don’t like it. I choose to stay closer to the bottom.
It feels like a revelation.
Although I’ve made mistake recently, as long as I can learn from them, I’ll be able to move on with more focussed attention.
How is everyone else coping with the silly season upon us?
This was a really inspiring post – thank you! My take is the same as yours – I’ll do what I can, not expect to be perfect, and know that:
a) this is a LOT better than I would have been eating before Gillian’s course and
b) this time next year I will be even better!
I am so grateful for learning about the “learning curve” with eating. For me it has always been “all or nothing” and it’s great to know that if I overeat IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD! I don’t need to beat myself up, I can just relax, smile, and keep moving forwards.
Well done, keep going, and Happy Birthday!!
