I quit....

 

Since last week, I quit tracking my foods. I quit counting calories. I quit obsessing over things, and I have felt better. 

I'm trying to be mindful of what goes into my body and remember that it needs fuel. But not crappy fuel, because just like a machine with improper fuel, it may work but not reliably. I want my body to become reliable. 

My thyroid panel came back, and it's on its way to where it needs to be, but that is only part of the equation for me. I also need to keep my kidney in check and my A1c, which is also coming down. I know food intake is a key factor, and that's why I'm turning towards mindful eating.

So what does that mean to me? Thinking about what's going in my body. How is that going to affect my systems? Savoring the flavors of each bite. Putting my fork down between bites. Not rushing through a meal. Listening to my body tell me when it's hungry vs. thirsty. (HUGE learning curve for me.) 

Yes, I know it is the holidays, but with just Jerry and I, there won't be many party foods. I'll let you know how it goes.
