I cannot tell you how many times that I would just fall off of everyone’s radar. POOF. Just like that- gone. I would be up to all sorts of no good. If it was around my workouts/nutrition, surely I had not been doing any workout at all and I would have been eating all sorts of fast food, baked goods, and whatever types of I know better foods.
Well, this time it has been a mixture of the two. I have been busy with everything that a move entails- including the unpacking, schedule juggling, and the changing family dynamics with the separation- getting a new car to support the amount of driving that I will need to do, and still with the business in the back of my mind. After all, gotta put food on the table.
I’m pretty damn proud of myself- I have been doing great sticking to eating my Super Natural Energy Balls for breakfast and lunch. Mostly. There have been a time or two where I have forgotten to pack them for later and I find myself needing to eat well during the day. In those cases, I have just made sure to have a fabulous salad or other mostly raw yumminess. And in the evenings, I have been eating mostly raw with the couple of meals that I have prepared for me and the kids. In those cases, I have just made really clean meals. Clean meals= not a lot of shit ingredients in them.
I have also started ‘blessing’ my food before I eat it. During my conversation with Sadee of SNEB, we talked about biophotons a bit and what foods emit them. Somewhere in that FABulous chat, I learned that it had been documented with a special film that can photograph the biophoton emissions and it was found that food that had been blessed emitted energy whereas food that hadn’t been did not.
Now, if the whole blessing thing has your panties in a bunch, checkout the science side of this. All that anything is, is energy. Period. No more, no less. Some of it we can touch, feel, smell, taste, whatever, and some of it we cannot. Intention is sort of the same way. You walk into a home that has a lot of arguing in it, you feel the tension. Conversely, when you walk into a home that is filled with love, you just feel so at home- even when no one else is there.
So y’all know that I blessed the shit outta that Ezell’s chicken! And extra blessings when I ate a Dick’s Deluxe burger- figured I needed the extra intention on that one. At no point though was I feeling guilty, or ashamed. Nor did I have the intention of giving in to a sort of habit, addiction, temptation. I was fully in control and made that choice. I also made sure to drink extra water and start taking a multi-vitamin. Now, I am not saying that you should go eat Ezell’s fried chicken and Dick’s hamburgers everyday and just make sure to bless it, take your vitamins, and chase it down with a big ole glass of water. I am saying that you are still responsible for the choices that you make and pay attention to the Why of those choices.
I betcha wanna know if it made any difference, huh? So this is how the week was: Eating seven fab fab choco balls a day, pretty clean meals, a couple of meals not so nutritious, no workouts to speak of, increase water, start taking a good multi-vitamin…down three more pounds! That’s a total of 11lbs. in six weeks.
Oh, and how do I feel? Well, other than a night spent a bit out of sorts crying from the changing family dynamics, I feel rather great. I have energy, I don’t feel sluggish at all, and the headaches have gone away; except for the morning after that cheap bottle of wine- which I increased water a bit more and added a couple extra balls to the day and was fine by afternoon!
