One of the biggest lessons that I wanted to take away from doing the Whole30, was gaining more control of what I was eating in between meals. Before Whole30, I was snacking a lot on fruit, then not tracking it since it was zero Weight Watcher points. During the Whole30, I did a great job of either not snacking at all in between meals, or “mindful” snacking. I would make a snack, sit down and eat it. Mindful snacking left me with no guilt about whatever it was that I was eating. Standing at the fridge or pantry and grabbing a few bites of something and mindlessly eating eat, left me knowing that I was eating for all of the wrong reasons.
Yesterday, I thought about snacking all darned day! I had a few dates and nuts, but struggled with not having more. I would have been better off having none at all. When my plan is to have NO snacks, I stick with that plan. When my plan is….I may or may not….it’s makes it more difficult for me to not think about food in between meals.
I don’t want to get back into the habit of mindless snacking. For me, snacking (even if it’s on whole foods) gets out of control really quickly, and it just isn’t okay.
Today, December 1st, NO SNACKING for the rest of the month! Three Square Meals a Day. December brings parties, cookie plates, random get togethers with lots of snacks, and even extra goodies strategically placed in the produce isle at the grocery store! It’s a good month for me to continue to have short term goals and stick to them.
I need goals, people.
After several weeks of not going, I finally did go to a Jazzercise Class yesterday! I’m going again today! I forgot how great that class makes me feel. Why do I sometimes forget the good things and stop doing them, but remember the bad things and start doing them? Always learning, huh?
