Nutritious Food does improve my mood. Monday, I was so upset... I ate a big bowl of cooked spinach with California Ranch EVOO. Then found a easy solution to the problem.

Warmth of spinach plus fat to absorb vitamins and minerals
Balanced my mood/hormones so I can think clearly!

19 Clever Ways to Eat Healthy on a Tight Budget bit.ly/2Nosz7u
. bit.ly/2Ru3QRA
1. Plan your meals for the week and make a grocery list. Only buy what you're sure you will use, and check out what you already have in your cupboards first.
2. Stick to your grocery list when you're shopping. Shop the perimeter of the store first, as this is where the whole foods are generally located. It's very easy to get sidetracked at the grocery store, which can lead to unintended, expensive purchases.
3. Cooking at home is much cheaper than eating out.
4. Cook large meals from inexpensive ingredients, and use leftovers right away
5. Shopping while hungry can lead to cravings and impulsive buying, have some protein.
6. Whole foods are often less expensive than their processed counterparts.
7. Generic brands often the same quality as more expensive national brands
8. Stop Buying Junk Food with little or no nutritional value.
9. Stock up on Sales on staples and favorite products.
Just make sure that they won't go bad, frequently ceck UBD use by date
10. Buy Cheaper Cuts of Meat. Fresh meat and fish can be quite expensive.
However, you can get many cuts of meat that cost way less.
11. Replace meat with beans, legumes, eggs or canned fish.
12. Shop for Produce-in season is typically cheaper and more nutritious. If you buy too much, freeze the rest or incorporate it into future meal plans.
13. Buy Frozen Fruits and VegetablesFrozen berries and vegetables are usually just as nutritious as their fresh counterparts. They are available all year round and are often sold in large bags. Reducing produce waste is a great way to save money.

14. Buy in Bulk nuts and seeds eleminated all grains: rice, millet, barley and oats

15.With some time and effort, learn to grow herbs, sprouts, esp. parsely

16. Packing a lunch saves a lot of money in the long run.

17. Use Coupons Wisely. Coupons may be a great way to stock up on cleaning products and healthy foods. Just make sure to avoid the ones that involve processed and unhealthy foods.

18. Appreciate incorporating more inexpensive yet healthy foods into your daily routine will help you save money and eat well.eggs, beans, seeds, frozen fruits and vegetables, cheaper cuts of meat and whole grains (eleminated al grains and saved money)

19. Buy From Cheap, Online Retailers. Take Home Message You don't have to break the bank to eat well.

In fact, there are many ways to eat healthy even on a very tight budget. These include planning your meals, cooking at home, and making smart choices at the grocery store.
Also, keep in mind that junk food costs you twice. Bad health comes with medical costs, drugs and even reduced work capacity. Even if eating healthy was more expensive (which it doesn't have to be), then it would still be worth it down the line.
You really can't put a price on good health

After you eat something sweet, how do your cravings behave in the following days?
My cravings increase in intensity and frequency.
Your Results: You Have Situational Struggles with Sugar
It's easy for you to keep sugar out of your house, but you have trouble practicing moderation around sugar in situations (like social gatherings) that are out of your control. When you're watching friends or co-workers chow down on easily-accessible sweet treats, it's easier for you to justify it, too.

Start taking steps now to stop your cravings and break your addiction once and for all. Remember that sugar does not magically gain the ability to control you the second you are put in a room with a buffet table or a sheet cake. The only person who can decide what goes into your mouth is you. You can do this!

Check out SparkPeople's Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge to kick-start your craving control! u.nu/8jmz u.nu/93ax Can't Stop Feeling! - Justin Timberlake youtu.be/dptqCpxAIGE youtu.be/Y0qh1dyHuIY

1. Pay attention: recognize when you’re thinking negative thoughts or telling yourself, “i can’t.” Do certain situations prompt more self-doubt than others?
2) Talk back: though it may sound crazy, start talking back to your self-doubt! For instance, if you catch yourself thinking, “no one wants to listen to my ideas,” counter with “yes, they do. My ideas are valuable and people are interested in what i have to say.”
3) Use a power pose: keeping your shoulders back and your head held high has a positive psychological effect and can actually boost your confidence.
4) Do your research: going into a scary situation with a little preparation can make a huge difference. Be sure to anticipate questions others might ask and practice answering them.
5) Challenge yourself: the way to achieve growth is to constantly challenge yourself. Once you overcome doubt in one area, move on to another!

Fresh perspective!
Looked at problem solving again - I have been overly emotional about work.

Predicament - Work-Stress and not using food to cope
- problem - co-worker mistreating me and her daughter's two doxies
- actions: I've managed to tolerate her negative behaviors for 20 months and only have 5 months left. I will continue to focus my attention on caring for dogs. With their approval I bring Buddy for "play dates." I treat my co-worker with respect and kindness and eventually her mood improves.

Buddy has been with our family for 9 years, I take care of him while DH works long hours. I was "resentful" (identify emotion) not being able to work full time. Now, Buddy and I work together, wonderful experience!
emoticon Linda, clever lesson, easy to do in our minds if we do not have time to write it down.

Day 76 Stop Sabotaging Me

Polite "no" is helping. Protecting my program, sticking to my food plan and taking supplements and medicine for hypothyroidism. I have been researching and asking questions at health food stores so I have been shopping more than usual. Marketing trick and impulse buying is a complication. bit.ly/2P5V4ri bit.ly/2Mxbjkz bit.ly/2BAXhZP read.bi/2MwnRbI

Day 77 My sabotage toolbox - for marketing tricks & stop impulse buying
Part of the reason is shopping when I am too tired to think straight. DH will food shop for me once I find "best buys" for our new way of eating. Most of the other stuff I don't really need and can shop online and read reviews to decide if I really want an item. Stopped buying food online, when I received food to close to the sell by date. I felt it was another trick and did want the hassle for returns.

Day 63 What do I feel? Listless because heat & lack of sleep. Take a cold shower and go back to bed (forget about eating, may drink cold water). Feeling better after a good rest in cool dark basement. Motivation improving!

Day 61 The emotional box - I am stoic. I'm learning to pick my battles. "Identify common times when you eat instead of labeling or expressing your feelings." When I'm tired/stressed. If I can wait "7 minutes" my urge to eat will pass u.nu/8r4a u.nu/5nuf When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new. – Dalai Lama

Day 53 - Taking Care of Needs and saving Days 52 - 57 for next round!
Priority reading Obesity & Diabetes Code (library books that I may purchase later when I want motivation to keep fasting and stay away from fructose)
Also I want to stop giving-into summer time sugary/starchy cravings and bought Plant Paradox Cookbook for reinforcements. Dr. Gundry's plan works well when I stick to Shopping List! u.nu/5csk u.nu/dpq0
u.nu/b2gp

I'll probably save more days for next round. I get more emotional when I am eating too much sugar and can't handle any cravings and think about eating while fasting. Athough I am better at fasting during cooler months so this may be temporary heat related craving wave emoticon

emoticon I used to be afraid! My biggest fear ***Regain*** I've giving-in to mindless/emotional eating. Not as much as I use too but still have uncomfortable self-sabotaging feelings to overeat unplanned food. Frustrating to re-gain.

Remember why I started Sparks and team support. Linda's book "Friends with the Scale" encouraged me to..."Focus on my actions and not my scale. Plan, record and learn effective ways to live healthy. 5 Reasons I want to reach and maintain a healthy goal weight:
1. Optimal Health & Disease Prevention
2. Independence to care for myself
3. Energy to exercise and keep active
4. Strong muscles to maintain balance and flexibility
5. Feel good in my clothes and comfortable in any situation
~~~~~~~
Day2 Commit to healthy habits that Work in the long run emoticon ~Driver's license/birthday goal below 155 speed limit. So many healthy behaviors will go into reaching this goal. Husband's holiday trip home to India helped open his eyes to a healthier way of eating - South India Cuisine, mostly Vegan expect fatty fish for Omega3. Studies recommend: “naturally derived sources of omega-3 such as oily fish to support a balanced EPA and DHA intake.”
~~~~~~~
Day 3 - Choice, Awareness & Responsibility. I don't want to study...Doing it anyways! Learning nutrition & healthy habits is Ongoing: Autoimmune Protocol, Plant Paradox,Sparks & YouTube. Eliminate sugary/starchy carbs. Taste buds chang - prefer non-starchy vegs. DH can eat more - my responsibility to develop a habit of not eating his food bit.ly/2y8rzSd bit.ly/2zE52Zo Sarah Ballantyne bit.ly/2LL3C5e
One step--one healthy choice at a time. I eat mindlessly when I am tired and have no strength to resist. Better to nap then eat. Practice napping like learning a new exercise.
Here is one routine that may need adaptations.
Usually after workouts or relaxation shower, drink hot water
1. Lay down in guestroom with fan/humidifier on for white noise
2. Set a timer for 20-30 minutes
3. Focus on breathing or meditation routine
4. Alarm goes off ***rise and seize the rest of my day
WW weekly- Let go! Cloud technique - steps. 1) sit comfortably close eyes 2) focus on breathing 3) imagine fluffy clouds drifting in blue skies 4) Label clouds - "food cravings" or describe negative feelings when tired/upset. Let-go of cravings & feelings as the clouds pass by. 5) Continue for two minutes, then gently bring your attention back to breathing

Day 4 Boundaries - Narrow road ~ cooking at home, daily tracking, walking cardio and ST 2-3x/week, water, relax & no eating 2- 3 hours before bedtime to improve digestion & sleep.
~Widen road ~ Leeway ~ plan ahead for meals outside home. Find non-food celebrations hiking, power-walk, window shopping, gym, movies & relaxing conversation. Eating-out is difficult to follow plan - too many choices (Wed. June 28th, 2017) lunch buffet at Coyote Moon - meatloaf, pepper steak, chicken parmesan, breaded pork chops & salad bar.

Tracked my temporary gain increased sodium and animal fats. Took one week to go back to starting weight by eating lots of veggies and avoiding animal products.
~~~~~~~
Day 5 (Aug.2014) Magic Notebook 18 month calendar. *Thinking about food, but not eating every thought* I watch cooking shows and enjoy food without giving-in by imagining how food tastes, smells and feels. emoticon Chefs and mothers think about food all day, if they can do it ... I can too! It's my job to control cravings and reach goal weight. I think of food as norishment when I am truly hungry. My poor eating habits lasted for 10 years (ages 44-54). I have been studying nutrition for 3 years to finalize a diet that works for my body type, LCHF eliminates foods that caused my weight gain. Planning, shopping & cooking are important routines. Visual motivation is a great tool! dot calendar. This week I collected data from the past 18 months to better understand my strengths and weaknesses.
1) Dots for 542 days: Red25%; Yellow25%; Green50% I am motivated to get more than ½ green days the rest of 2018!
2) Day with most Green-M; Yellows-F; Reds- Sat. Mondays are green “stick to plan” days, then relaxing healthy behaviors by Friday and watch-out Saturday.
Here is the site with a clever dot calendar. I also like to see the bar graphs & averaging daily weights. www.startyourdiet.com/

Day 6 Protecting nutrition & fitness program is getting easier. After big-40-re-gain Winter 2015, I came back 2016 stronger with a better plan reduced 80+. Creating my own version of Autoimmune Protocol & eliminating foods causing inflammation, cravings and digestion problems. Protecting heart, burning fat and strengthening muscles. Cardio daily & ST 2-3x /week*** be flexible but don't skip Avoid Temptation with water in wine glass. It's fun to have two - cold & hot cups Protect myself from negative thoughts and naysayers. Smile & appreciate compliments but don't share details... simply say, "I watch what I eat & exercise!" xl4wellness.com/why-supplement/ It's amazing friends and family adjusted to me saying "no thanks' and they don't offer food anymore. Feeling stronger now that I am protecting my nutrition and fitness program to reach health goals. I buy healthy food at the markets (high nutrition). Protect heart, burn fat and strengthening muscles.
~~~~~~~
Day 7 - I can do this because...I have goals I want to achieve*** Reached 1st goal range June, 2017 *** Gaining cooking, nutrition, fitness skills & knowledge. Plus, supportive
emoticon s and family emoticon
~~~~~~~~
Day 8 - Help me, please... emoticon Inspiring posts everyone! emoticon Finding most reliable health coach is ME! Then surround myself with support. DH for exercise and he grew up vegan. Spark friends to problem solve especially eating behaviors. We are all learning together! Along the way enjoying improvements... more energy, healthy glow, and dare I say... better digestion.
~~~~~~~
Day 9, Here's what I want, I have been sticking to saying --- "Activity instead of food!!! I'd rather go for a walk then out to lunch. Minnesota winters are brutal... during 2015, I gained weight. This winter I planned ahead and reduced pounds!. **New Family Y (May 2017) emoticon pool/hot tub/sauna that is a healthy alternative to comfort food.

I don't want... people to keep offering food, after I say, “No thanks, I’m not hungry or I already ate.” I can smile, and change the subject. The plus side of living in Minnesota... we can always talk about the weather. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
~~~~~~~~
Day 10 Appreciate Good Support emoticon Sparkpeople's weight loss tools, health information and supportive community. Nutrition, fitness, emotional and spiritual support can be found here as needed. Giving support to other SP is very rewarding. Healthy choices that get me one step closer to my goal emoticon emoticon emoticon

Recap setting up for success. It has been rewarding doing the 100 days repeatedly. I have been able to correct slips before they snowball. I can gain new skills rather quickly. Biggest challenge moving forward --- nearly vegan food plan. Animal products on special occasions outside the home.
~~~~~~~
Day 11 Two purposes of food --- My taste-buds have changed... fuel is flavorful with spices emoticon emoticon Plan change June, 2017 avoiding animal products except special occasions. Still working out the details may have egg with 2 egg whites on intense workout days.

Eating window 9-6 (varies). Thyroid pill 2 cups glacier water (not tap water) wait 30 minutes.
~ Morning 1st hot lemon then decaf coffee black with cinnamon bark..
~ Mid morning 1/2 Vegan All in One Nutritional Shake, mixed with hemp protein, cilantro, parsley, chia seeds and a few frozen berries for flavor
~ Noon Large variety of non-starchy vegetables 1/2 raw & 1/2 cooked
~ Mid day 1/2 of vegan shake (1-2 tbsp of oat bran)
~ Evening same as noon meal + multi-vitamin, Omega 3, calcium, and extra vit. C.& D
Fasting 6p-9a then morning exercise before breakfast. Vegan Protein provides essential amino acids. Freggies vitamins & minerals. One Brazil nut every week for selenium to improve thyroid function. Daily may have 1 oz. or 23 raw almonds (160 calories) Of all tree nuts, almonds rank highest in protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin.ys of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle

Daily may have 1 oz. or 23 raw almonds (160 calories) Of all tree nuts, almonds rank highest in protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin.
~~~~~~~
~Day 12 Fuel or filler? To control carb cravings I have substituted filler for fuel. Replaced sugar, bread, pasta, sugary fruit and starchy vegetables with nutrient dense food--- leafy veggies, low sugar berries, lean protein, healthy fats (olive and coconut oil nuts & seeds), oat bran (fiber). Weighing daily, I saw gains from high carbs then switched them out - nut milk for cow's milk; Only left are cottage cheese & plain greek yogurt - small potions 1-2x /week.Switched to decaf coffee & plain tea at home & Mondays Kwik Trip chai lattes or espressos for $1.
~~~~~~~
~Day 13, Oops, I forgot to eat! [June 2016] I eat when hungry, keeping active and distracted from food, it's okay to forget! First drink a glass of water to be sure it's hunger and not thirst. Readily available when hungry---water, veggies, protein, healthy fats (olive/coconut oil) ~~~~~~~
~Day 14 Morning affects Evening - Exercise then Break-Fast. Set food plan removes tension - mealtime is relaxing. Start with hot lemon water - eggs, veg & avocado or protein shake with metabolism enhancers - cilantro, parsley & chia seeds. Good am routine = less pm hunger. Stop 2-3 hours before bedtime, if hungry satisfy with water or herbal tea first. Wait 20 minuites - still hungry?- Mini-meal - protein/fat/leafy veg. {prefer omega 3 fatty fish}. Note - "splitting breakfast into two mini-meals." 1st protein- wait 15min. - 2nd starchy veg: "Eat protein before carbohydrates to lower post-meal glucose" "Blood sugar spikes make it easier for your body to pack on the pounds, so prioritizing protein could be a smart." bit.ly/2MzJpzM bit.ly/2KuW3ml
~~~~~~~
Day 15 First two bites: taste the best so Enjoy - Chew slowly noticing flavor and texture. After reducing weight and eating less fuel tastes better than fillers. Reduced cravings for sweets by switching to one square of 100% cacoa with crunchy coconut flakes (replaced nuts). If my mind plays tricks and I want more...drink ice water, s-l-o-w-l-y or "Brain Freeze." emoticon Sweets emoticon still look good but it's easier to say "No" once in the grocery store than to say 'no' multiple times at home.
~~~~~~~
Day 16 Nurturing Power of Food (swaps)... nutritious food is comforting
Winter of 2015, I was stressed and re-gained 40#. Using empty calories as comfort food. Initially, feeling better but soon my body was chemically imbalanced and I could not make better choices. High carb /low nutrient foods are unhealthy mentally, as well as physically.

During a nutrition course, I learned about essential vitamins, minerals, amino and fatty acids. Then I changed the way I think about food... Nutrients are Fuel for a Healthy Body... Food is not entertainment, love, hugs, sympathy and does NOT reduce stress.

July-Sept. 2017, re-gained 10# - too much summer fun & fruit emoticon emoticon Started reducing again, 2018 with better skills & strategies for every season/holiday - emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon winter, spring, summer, or fall, Food is super-abundant emoticon for making healthy choices!

Q #4) How do you deal with hunger?

Answer: It’s not easy. Hunger is a powerful force. Staying busy helps. Drinking lots of water and coffee/tea can also help blunt the hunger response. It may also help to re-frame how you view hunger. Think of it this way: When you feel hungry, that’s when your body STARTS to burn your stored body fat. So if you eat every time you feel the slightest twinge of hunger, your body never gets a chance to tap into it’s fat stores. If you think of hunger in this manner, you can start to view hunger as a positive sensation. www.fitnessunderoath.com/the-five-st

modelmydiet.com/women Eat mindful and sitting down: Every single time matters because every time I’m either exercising my giving-in or my resistance muscle. If I eat standing up, no matter what it is, I make it more likely I’ll give in and stand up the next time I’m tempted to. Once I make myself sit down every single time, then this skill will get a lot easier because my resistance muscle will be strong. Every time matters! www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h0VhF9ad78 gundrymd.com/flaxseed-benefits-sourc

Bulletproof Coffee? Bulletproof Tea?

I've read many things about the benefits of BPC. It's supposed to help a person with food cravings and energy levels as we implement intermittent fasting (IF).

I'm reducing my coffee intake as it seems to contribute to my acid reflux, so I decided to look at Bulletproof Tea (BPT) options.

I found a few recipes and made some today:

Matcha tea and water warmed in microwave
Add g/f butter and coconut oil
Blend with hand/stick blender
Put in freezer for a while to cool
Add ice
Add non-glycemic sweetener of choice (if desired)

Day 45 Food is increasingly important as I learn more about nutrition and the food industry. I pay more attention to food labels, trans fats and hidden sugars. However. when I am exercising, working or relaxing I do not want to think about Food. Stay in the moment, food is for nourishment. Balasubramanian (Balsy) is going home Dec. 22nd and will learn more about his ancestral diet - Southern Indian. Currently we are mostly vegetarian without grains. We swapped rice & dosa for cauliflower to provide more nutrients & fiber. Sweet instead of white potatoes. We may continue high quality seafood OR eggs 2-3 times a week for health benefits (e.g. Omega 3 and B-12). I am looking into the benefits of getting the B-12 shot at annual appt. in Feb. Still reserching if omega 3 as fish oil better absorbed than plant flax seed. chriskresser.com/the-3-step-process-

Day 50 is Xmas (I'll come back here)Day 38 Food had power when I ate mindlessly. About 4 years ago (Jan. 2014) I gave up processed and packaged food and learned to cook.

Day 32 Spacing varies, eating intuitively when truly hungry. Be consiously aware of feeling full on smaller amounts of nutrient-rich foods. OMAD : #1 Dark Green Leafy salad. Add: vitamin C cabbage, A-rich romaine, 2-4 ounces of lean protein and healthy fats (avocados, coconut oil, MCT & EVOO)
