When working on transforming the way you think 💭about food 🌮 and eating in order to lose weight, you will have roadblocks ⛔️thrown at you by your own mind. 🤯 In a weird way we tend to self sabotage ourselves 🤷🏽♀️ when pushed into non-comfort zones such as a weight loss commitment. 😕 Your brain 🧠 is wired to maintain comfort, survive, stay non eventful. When we are fasting sometimes we may start thinking negatively 😫 about before we even begin. Therefore set ourselves up to fail or to Jane a negative experience. 😐There are many benefits to fasting. I have to remind myself this when fasting. 🧐
Here we are, this is day 6 of intermittent fasting for me. 🎉The first two days I did a simple 16/8. That means I fasted for 16 hours ate for 8. I waited until 12:30 to eat my first meal and stopped eating by 8:30.
The next two days I did 12:30 to 6:30. I was doing it BIG baby! 🥳 Day 5 I ate from 2:30 to 4:30! Wooo yasss I did! 💅🏽 Now today, day 6, I ate once at 1:30. I have been drinking water since. And let me tell you boy was my mind 🧠 playing tricks on me today! Boy did I want to eat some spaghetti 🍝 my daughter cooked. But I just kept drinking my water. 💧💧
What I’m am not: 🙅🏽♀️
Dizzy (I’ll I used to think I would faint if I didn’t eat 3 times a day)
Hungry as often
What I am:🙋🏽♀️
Focused - I can concentrate better
More energy - no midday ittis!
I feel lighter
More conscious of what I eat and when I eat
This is so far, my intermittent fasting update. 💁🏽♀️With that being said, I am already looking forward to eating next! Ha ha 🤣 is funny and interesting how I look forward to the actual act of eating 🐽. Not just the fact that I’m “fueling” 🏋🏾♀️my body. It reminds me that there is more to weight loss than working out and diet. 🧐It’s also changing the way you think about eating and working out! 🤔
