Internal Nourishment Intention Experiment [Food Diary]

Nourishment Through Intention Last week’s ‘focus & celebrate the positive experiment‘ felt like a more beneficial experiment for general health & an optimistic life than my normal food diaries (focusing only on the “positive” things I do for my body & mind rather than listing the negative (since the cool weather hit, I’ve been drawn to foods that don’t support me as much as what the beautiful summer did for my diet, and I don’t want to feel “fear” or get down on myself about any of that, because mindset is crucial for healing)

This week’s Affirmation

I am drawn only to things that nourish & support the health of my body, mind, and spirit.

All this comfort food eating in winter and around birthdays and around people who are cooking delicious smelling food around me and cooking for me.. this is really dangerous.. I can already start to feel my digestion failing.. that things aren’t moving as freely, that I’m not as motivated to eat healthy, that I’m choosing the comfort foods over the healthier foods except for the smoothies. I can’t fall back into the trap of the person that I used to be. I feel that especially noticeable in the past 3 days, that I have put on a heap of weight. Not that I do anything for weight – I haven’t been trying to lose weight or anything, but it’s been a nice “side-effect” of stuffing myself full of nutritious healthier food choices. How do I tell people not to cook for me and sit down and choose my 5 minute salad over their delicious “I just spent 2 hours cooking this” food? It’s not been a problem before really, because I don’t have that many temptations around me.. I cook for myself and therefore can choose to put whatever I like in my mouth, which is usually the healthier life-giving choices, but this week or so has been a true test really, given that each meal has been prepared or we’ve been out & about etc.Yeah, I need to get back to “my” food, that’s when I feel healthiest. I even notice my skin getting blemishes, my lungs getting congested, and other indications that I need to get back to my “anti-inflammatory” lifestyle. Inflammation = dis-ease. I have been building up my immune system after a lifetime (30 years) on antibiotics and steroids / medications. I cannot just fleet back into a normal diet like ‘healthier’ people might be able to do, I need to rebuild my body first, detox, continue to repair & strengthen my immune system. I’ve felt so healthy but this past week, and especially the past few days, feeling the ‘side effects’ of ‘comfort’ foods, as delicious as they are.
