It’s Fall!🍁 Time to hit the REFRESH button.
What do I mean?? Well, if you’ve followed this little blog, you know I have purposely tried to eat healthy more often than not. For some reason that is easier to do during Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons, than summer. The long daylight hours, more physical activity, and hot weather just makes me hungrier. I eat more; which means I gain pounds usually. Frankly, healthy eating can get oooold!😒 (Because fattening food is more fun 😂).
This summer I really tried to just maintain. I did eat a few more calories per day, around 1500-1800 per day on average, but I also ‘moved’ more so I guess it all balances out because I lost 3 pounds overall this summer.
I’m that hard stage right now where weight loss is not the real issue, but just staying on a good path, eating food clean food, and moving my body.
Fall is a good time to REFRESH and REFOCUS!
Today I am encouraging and motivating myself so tomorrow, Monday’ I am ready! I will likely on Monday and Tuesday morning until 1pm drink lemon water, ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar), cayenne pepper, honey just to give my body a rest. (check here for more info on the drink – use your good sense people, I’m no doctor). Then I eat lots of veggies. This seems to give my mind and body time to get in sync and detox a bit.
You know I love my veggies and the cooler weather has me thinking about roasted Brussels sprouts, rutabagas, kale, greens, and crockpot soups. Yum!
I just found this information I had saved in my files… good motivation. Food really is medicine!
Over the past 14 months I’ve learned to listen to what my body is saying in terms of cravings. I now know if I am craving certain foods it’s usually due to my food intake being a little unbalanced. This table helped a lot.
Check this out too! It might help if you need a Fall Refresh as well!
Keep up the good work! Let me know how you are doing!
