OK... Let me think. So specifically. Here it is. Yes, I do specific things to stay healthy & keep my weight down.
-I rarely snack.
-I eat breakfast.
-I usually leave food on my plate at the end of each meal.
-I do not drink soda. (Maybe 1 a month.)
-Nothing is "off limits" like sugar.
-I have trained my body to NOT like the over-full feeling.
-If I eat more than what I normally do... I compensate & wait until I am on "empty" again.
-I found an exercise I love!
-I understand that if there's too much food going in, it won't matter how much exercise I do. It just won't.
-I exercise first for mental benefits... then physical.
-I listen to my body. If I feel like emotionally eating, I do my best to recognize it & work through it. Emotional eating is normal for most women. Acknowledge it for what it is & pick up something besides a fork. A distraction I call it.
-I like to stay busy.
-I am highly motivated by music. I keep my iPod handy. It's a great "pick me up"!
-I chew gum! Love the minty stuff!
I'll keep thinking.
