I am down 1.5 lbs this week, which feels low considering the work that I have put in. But I am also on my period this week, so I’ll take it lol. I have been sticking to intermittent fasting all week. My eating window is noon-6pm. At first I loved it, but now I am starting to feel more hungry, so I might adjust to an 8 hr window, but I haven’t decided yet. I don’t want to do anything that might cause me to binge eat.
I drink black coffee in the morning, but when I am in my eating window I am still doing my collagen coffee and I love it. I do add just a touch of sugar free syrup, which isn’t super ‘clean’ but I like it better than plain stevia. I have stuck to my goal of at least 3 workouts a week. I either do T25 at home with my husband or go to the gym.
My favorite meal this week
I will say that this past week has been an emotional one for me. I definitely see this happen when I stop using food as a comfort. It’s not easy to process through some of the painful things that come up when we are not numbing ourselves with food, but I think that is the most important part in this journey. I can lose weight, but I don’t believe it will stay off unless I deal with what is going on in my heart.
These are things that help me process…
- Listening to worship
- Being outside
- Having meaningful conversations with people I love & trust
I have also had a lot of thoughts about what ‘body positive’ means to me. I have seen it go to an extreme lately in the media and I would love to hear your thoughts. I asked the same thing on my Instagram and got some amazing responses. So I would love for you to leave a comment and tell me what the term ‘Body Positive’ means to you.
