After a busy and exhausting week, you deserve to be able to sit on the sofa, watch your favourite show and eat one of your favouriteIf you feel as though you can’t do this, then there are deeper issues affecting your relationship with food. Don’t ever feel guilty about what you eat because it is YOUR CHOICE what you put in your mouth and you have the power to make every meal nourishing and those that are not so nourishing, eat mindfully, with ease and ENJOY and SAVOUR it! It’s special! Now, before I dive into my Friday night taste bud party, I have put in place a routine I do when I come home to wind down and again (like Thursday) make more mindful choices around food. Doing these things helps me to stop at one small bowl of toasted coconut chips with a drizzle of homemade raw chocolate, rather than having 3. Plus, I go to bed with NO GUILT for having indulged because I made the decision mindfully and in a clear mental state. I wasn’t stressed, tired or grumpy. I was calm, relaxed and my mind was clear. If I am stressed, tired or grumpy then I don't allow myself to have my indulgence, and I'll have it Saturday night instead. Friday nights: come home—> shower—> legs up the wall and meditate at the same time —> dinner (again have a dinner where I finish being FULL…this means I can fit less of my ‘mindful cleanse’ into my tummy hehe)—-> make snack—> pack up the snack straight after I have finished making it—> tea for the rest of the night Reasoning: Shower - It helps me to literally wash off the day. If bad things have happened, they have been washed off me. It is refreshing and a very calming thing to do when you get home to clear your mind. Legs up the wall/meditate - same as Thursday Dinner- again same as Thursday and by having a big dinner I am less likely to eat more of my indulgence because I am already satisfied from dinner. Whereas if I was to have a small dinner, I then am able to have more of my treat and get carried away Pack up straight after - this is to reduce me going and making more. If it is already clean and tidy I’m less likely to go make a mess again Tea - I love to enjoy tea every night and so after my treat, I’ll do just that! Also, another KEY thing that you must keep in mind. The more you say to yourself “I can’t have that” or “no, I said I wasn’t allow that until next week” or “that will make my fat” or “no I shouldn't have that” you will want it MORE!!!!! It’s human nature for you to rebel when someone says ‘no’. This is including when you say no to yourself. INSTEAD: I want you to say ‘I could have some, but in 5 minutes” (chances are your craving will go away, you'll forget or you’ll get sidetracked” or “I’ll get some in a sec, I can’t be bothered” or “I don't really feel like any” …I find all of these affirmations much more helpful when you know that you have had enough food and are just having an annoying craving (we all get them!) I hope this routine may help you also reduce any stress eating habit you have. Give it a go and let me know! x
