A Day Of Intuitive Eating Series

Posted on: August 28, 2010

When the world of intuitive eating unfolded for me, I was very excited and scared. I was excited because I knew it was possible, but scared because I didn’t know how. I turned to the blogs where real people were sharing their experiences good and bad and that helped a lot. Especially Honor My Health and Health for the Whole Self

Sometimes, I get on such a roll with listening to my inner wisdom and I am soaring through the day so positively. Other days I am distracted by other things and I am not following the guidelines as closely as I could (but, I am conscious about it). One of the things that I wanted to try and do was document a whole day of intuitive eating. This includes my moods, feelings, hunger scale, what I ate ect. I want to not only do it on a ‘normal’ day, but also days where I am at work, or days that I will be out for most of it, or days where I sit home all day. No day is the same, so I know the way I eat won’t be. Now I am still figuring out how I am going to lay this out. My guess is that I will be posting my day in 3rds or more just to kind of tune into my feelings more at that time. Other times, I won’t be able to get to posting as soon as I feel something, but i will be sure to keep a pen and pad with me to make sure I get it up here the way its meant to be.

I hope to start this today so stay tuned and let me know if you have any ideas or things you would like me to document in the process!

Basically, you are doing a blog version of a food mood journal. Good for you for getting in there and digging around. That is the place where you can really change your relationship with food. I will be watching along as you do this!

Thanks Christie! I’m already finding that it is bringing me to listen more just knowing I am blogging everything here. I’m interested to see how I do on other days like a work day, or a day I’m completely away from home ect. Thanks for reading!

I’m interested to see how this goes as well. I always have the best intentions with my food/mood journal, but I always forget to fill it out after lunch.

I hear you on that! I’m going to try my best to do full days when I do this series. Thanks for following along!
