THIS JUST IN….our bodies are kind of smart.
Our bodies try to tell us things to help us stay HEALTHY and not go overboard whether it is on food, exercise, work, sleep and play. Do we listen to them or not?
I am getting really good when it comes to running/working out and listening to my body. I KNOW what my body can and cannot handle right now. I KNOW what is going to keep me healthy and what could end up re-injuring myself. Besides just my burning lungs telling me to stop and walk I am digging deep and listening to my body’s cues for when I should stop and walk.
During the day I am doing great at listening to my body SCREAMING for a lb. of broccoli, whole grains, fruits and foods that make me feel good (fro-yo included on this list).
(I had a grilled cheese and chicken sandwich….pretty good if I do say so myself).
What I am not so good about listening to is when my body is FULL at night. I don’t really talk about this on the blog very often because HRG is meant to be a positive place and I know I will get some anonymous commenter saying that I should continue to eat that much when I do as much physical activity as I do but I don’t like the way it makes me feel.
I want to learn how to listen to my body at night when it says….you’ve had enough candy bars Janae, time to do something else. I am not one to make guidelines like no eating after 9 or closing the kitchen down (because I would end up eating more….I don’t like ‘rules’) but instead take a hint from my SMART body and stop before I am uncomfortably full.
I am not saying this because of weight or because I want my love handles to magically melt away but because I know I am putting in earplugs when my body tells me that I should probably not indulge in the 4th slice of Costco cake.
I love having a blog because I can share what I am working on and hopefully other’s out there can relate and we can all work on listening to our bodies together!
Check out my guest post on the BEAUTIFUL BESS’S BLOG!!!
What area do you need to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY MORE?
Is there a time of day (or day) that making healthy choices is especially tough?
-Night time calls me to eat bags of candy, my second (okay, third) helping of ice cream, and end up uncomfortably full.
