Honor Your Hunger

The topic of this last weeks WW meeting was: 
Honor your Hunger
*Tune into your body signals
*Include power foods in every meal
*Note your hungry times and plan for them
With this fast paced world we live in, we also eat too fast. 
Lots of suggestions in the meeting to help slow down were; 
put your fork down in between bites, 
count as you chew slowly, etc. 
So how do you know if its really hunger or not? 
I have learned that if I eat every 3 hours, 
one- it keeps my blood sugar stable and I don’t have cravings, 
and two-if I’m really hungry an hour after or so after I’ve eaten then I know I didn’t eat enough power foods to help me to feel full and satisfied. 
This is also where my fav tracking tool the dietSNAPS app has come in soooo handy to help me track my hunger.  It has been such an amazing tool for me to look back on my day and see the times I have eaten and that helps me figure out if I’m really hungry or just wanting to emotional eat. Also, being able to literally look back on what I ate that day helps me to better pinpoint what foods I’m missing or not eating enough of. 
This week-try and pay closer attention to your body’s signals of hunger.
You just might learn something about yourself!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
