Please do not read this post if you have an eating disorder that is triggered by reading about excessive eating or if it may upset you in any way - that is not my intention here. I'm having a tough time of it recently and writing about it may help me work through it.
Thank you for understanding.
OK so why has February been FAT? Well mostly because I have been feeding my face in a mostly uncontrolled way. In the same breath its calculated, frenzied and uncontrolled all at the same time, I have let myself loose control. I started out thinking that I was allowing my body to feed, I thought I needed to address the balance of exercise and calories better (which I do but will get to).
Let me explain:
I started by being more hungry than usual but that would be natural because I am working out more than I was a few months ago and so I gave myself permission to have extras, a slice of toast here, a chocolate there, a donut, nibble off the kids plates and so on. Well what started off as the odd bite here and there turned into a full blown binge.
I plan myself another challenge, a
21 day #NOsugar challenge
I get that this will be hard for me but once I feed on sugar I CRAVE sugar and I need to stop the feeding to stop the craving to stop the cycle.
Now while that addresses the sugar part of it, it does not take away that I need more food due to the exercise I'm doing. Yes my goal is to loose weight and and get a rocking hot body but underfeeding myself (I cannot use starving because I do not starve myself) is not going to work any more than sugar feeding frenzies will.

I plan myself yet another challenge, a
21 day #SHAKEandSMOTHIE challenge
With this challenge I hope to take away cravings for bad-to-me-foods. I will make a protein shake or smoothie straight after getting in from gym and again in the afternoon to alleviate any hunger demons lurking. Watch my FB page and instagram for shake & smoothie pictures :-)
