I am a live-out-loud all in kind of person so portion control can be a challenge. Both with food, time, and emotion.
My first thought, regarding food, is to start with a smaller plate. My second thought, is to actually use a plate! I usually snack directly out of the bag or container. Therefore I’m not conscious of how much I’m eating. My nutritional coach gave me some great advice. Cut 250 calories from food and burn 250 calories from exercise daily. 500 calorie daily deficit x 7 days is a pound a week. I will hold myself accountable by checking here weekly.
In life I’m going to experiment with taking bite size potions out of life. I’m hoping by doing that I’ll be more in the present and less overwhelmed. My goal for July is establish a routine and go small. Wish me luck!
