Healthy Eating Week 1
A week ago I knew my eating habits needed to change again. Without doing anything drastic I’ve lost 5 pounds in 7 days. Basically, I’ve been staying away from inflammatory foods or drinks as much as possible. I’ve eliminated or drastically reduced my intake of anything dairy, fast food, and caffeine. I’ve not once gone crazy over anything sweet and sugary. In fact, my addiction to sweets has drastically decreased.
I’ve averaged at least 64 ounces of water per day. I try to eat what I can with an intentional mindset instead of a careless mindset. I’m just taking one meal at a time. I’m staying ahead of my hunger so I’m not as easily tempted to eat just anything. Praise God I’m seeing results in weight loss, nerve pain reduction, and a healthier mindset overall.
I’m now sitting at 5’11 and 184lbs. My goal is to at least get back to between 175-178. I have to find unconventional ways to strengthen my body. I’m stretching more often but I have to consistently do that moving around. I’m back to walking more, but I still have to be very careful to not overdue things.
My lower back can take my entire body down in so many ways. Daily I’m learning more how to take care of my body in this season of my life. I’m fighting to live a healthier lifestyle not just experience a healthier season. Hopefully, I will keep taking the next right step by God’s grace.
I’m aiming to do my own tailored version of intermittent fasting. I will aim to not eat anything after 8pm and nothing before 10am. I could easily wait until noon to eat but I need something small with my morning medications.
I’m so thankful to regain some recovery momentum. I’m very thankful for any of your prayers. Please know I’m praying for you as well. Make sure you keep taking that next right step and trust God for the results.
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” Psalm 141:10
