💫 30 Days of INTUITIVE EATING – DAY 1

🥣 DAILY MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
Just Eat June – 30 Days of Intuitive Eating
[No Tracking/Calories/Measuring]

DAY 1
Yesterday I was not observant enough on my labels and I cooked some pulled pork for lunch. I was even careful and threw out the BBQ Sauce that came with the kit because it didn’t list ingredients, but I missed the additives in the pork.

Needless to say – it kicked me square in the gut. I had a big reaction. So I am adding more conscious checking of my labels to this month. It should go without saying but it is easy to miss if I am tired… Whew!

So when I woke up today, I was still having stomach issues and very swollen – up over 10lbs in swelling overnight and that is after having, shall we say, a very interrupted sleep with belly issues.

Between that and my meds – I knew I wasn’t going to eat much but instead of being worried about calories – I went with what I could do. This ended up being a little flat of Raspberries and a Sonoma Cheese Crisp bar about 4pm and then I cooked dinner about 7pm once the worst of the stomach stuff had passed.

I also started rechecking my glucose levels. I have never been diabetic but have been right on the prediabetes line a few times so I thought I would monitor that this month too.

INTUITIVE EATING CHALLENGE BASIC GUIDELINES
▪️ No tracking, weighing, measuring foods
▪️ Eat when actually hungry (no eating just to meet caloric target)

EXTRA GUIDELINES
▪️ Eat as I normally would (whole food focus) allowing for additional things I may not usually pay the points for out of principle 😁
▪️ Make first meal of the day the largest (in case I don’t feel like eating in the evening)
▪️ Prep salad toppings for ease of putting together a Superfood Salad + protein for dinner 5 nights / week
▪️ Continue to weigh daily to track inflammation and record on #fearlessfridays
▪️ Check, check and double check all food labels before using any packaged products including raw meats and frozen vegetables
