So, after many beautiful months of continuous attuned eating, I’ve hit a roadblock. It’s been about 10 days of eating until I’m am uncomfortably full, and eating when I am definitely not physically hungry. I think the low point was at a stressful, holiday family gathering when I saw a hot dog on the floor, checked to see that no one was looking, and ate it.
Tonight, I went Chipotle. I definitely had some hunger. I ordered a burrito bowl. I knew that eating all of it would NOT FEEL GOOD. At first, I ate it mindfully, checking in with myself to see where my hunger levels were at. But, I did indeed eat the whole
Why am I eating mindlessly?
I feel rejected in some of my relationships. It makes me feel very unacceptable to myself.
I’m eating a lot when I have down time. Usually, I’m on the go.
I’m not getting enough sleep.
I know I need radical self-kindness, but what does that look like?
Crying (a lot)
Being gentle with myself
Possibly tracking my hunger/satiety levels
Adding more joy
How do you handle roadblocks in life?
