Day 30: Mindful Eating

Friday, January 10, 2020

This morning I was feeling pretty weak, so all I could manage was some cardio. I did the full video, though. Exercise is still going pretty well overall. I'm having to do a little less with exercise, but I'm still doing well with my workouts.

Although I'm super bloated this morning and not feeling well. I have to focus more on mindful eating. Nutrition didn't go well yesterday. I ended up eating much more than I had intended to. I'm going to pay closer attention to what I'm eating today and to the quality of the food that I'm eating. I'm doing my best to get in protein to build muscles and to get in more fibre.

Meditation is going well. I did the Living Spirit meditation yesterday and also a mindful meditation as well as a "Counting the Breath" meditation.

Reading is going really well. I read two chapters of Stages of Meditation. I'm starting to read more throughout the day again and the more difficult concepts in this book are becoming easier for me to understand.

Listened to a fitness podcast yesterday on how adversity can be your best friend. It was a pretty good one. Planning on listening to one today on how the tiniest habits lead to the biggest changes.

Sunday is my next smoke free day. Starting to prepare for that. Getting mentally ready to not smoke.

Drank 3 glasses of water yesterday so I did make my goal. Hoping to drink a bit more today.

Not really much to say today. More later.

    I am so happy to hear that you managed to workout in spite of not feeling well. I understand how hard it is to stop smoking. I have watched my son, his wife, and my son-in-law try many times to stop. My husband quit smoking cigars and snuff several years ago ( apparently still craves it). I will keep my fingers crossed for you!
    Have you tried adding some flavor to your water? I sometimes put a herbal teabag (peach, or raspberry etc) into a pitcher of cold water and really enjoy it. I always have kidney stones so I drink a lot of water! Hope you have a great weekend with that beautiful boy of yours. Hugs, Kat
