A domino effect? Sometimes when one thing changes. . . it all changes. Changing my exercise is affecting my diet!
I’ve been bothered by my diet for quite some time. Though I probably eat healthier food that in the typical U.S. diet, my eating times were erratic, and often I would not eat enough. Sometimes a lack of food sooner would lead to unhealthy binges later.
I’m finally starting to implement a plan. Breakfast is eggs and potatoes. Morning snack is a Shaklee shake. Lunch is either a large salad or hummus and cheese sandwich (with spinach and using gluten-free bread). Snack is nuts/peanut butter/cheese — not sure what else yet. Dinner is either bean tacos, chicken (on wing night), spaghetti, or a dinner mixing some of these ingredients: cous cous, rice, beans, and lentils. That’s the plan to start.
My most recent intuitive health analysis said the following about my physical health and food:
“We see optimal health within the physical body. We see there is an understanding that this one has in regards to how to feed the body and what to feed the body. This one is balanced in this regard, and we do not see much change needed there.”
It went on to suggest just more iron and iodine. So, I have since been more consistently taking my supplements and looking for ways to add more iron to a mostly vegetarian diet.
Yesterday I noticed a few other things related to diet. I had been marveling that I hadn’t had any stomach cramping/gas for some time, and then . . . soon after I did! I reflected back on what I’d eaten differently and concluded it must have been some chocolate I’d eaten. I’d had similar stomach rumblings in response to chocolate in the past. Bummer! Less or no chocolate, then. Then, my bank was having an anniversary celebration, and I had one mini cupcake and an Oreo cookie. 20 minutes later I felt an energy drop in my system. Yikes! Was it the sugar? The breading? Probably both.
Will this mean an end to sweets for me? Probably not. But I will be mindful of my choices, aware of the possible consequences of my decisions. Maybe if I cut back on sugar I will finally embrace and eat the fruits I keep buying and not eating!
A healthy diet has also been in my vision since last year. Some things just take more time, I guess! It gives me hope to keep the faith in my dreams.
Ending thought: While listening back to my last intuitive report, I came across a part that I realize I’ve been neglecting, and I thought it might help you as well. It matches what’s been on my mind a lot this week, as I continue to reflect on judgement, acceptance, and neutrality. I was given these affirmations, advised to repeat them daily for a period of 3 months:
“Everything that occurs is for my benefit. Every experience, every person, every interaction is here for my good. I am fortunate to receive experiences that bring me joy.”
Much love, many blessings. ❤
