NSV: 3 servings, not 1 serving. (Long Post)
This is kind of an odd NSV, but here it is.
Yesterday work was crazy, dealing with a crisis, at about 2:30 several of us looked around and realized we hadn't eaten. Long story short, I went to the kitchen and took the bag of salad I had brought for lunch, sliced a tomato on it , spritzed with salad spray, found 3 eggs and an onion, and saute'd them with some vegies and 3 ounces of ham I was going to put on my salad, and made a yummy frittata, divided it 3 ways, topped it with a Tbs. of Salsa and served it up.
The NSV, is that in the past, this amount of food would have been one serving for me. I would have begrudged (sorta) making it feed 3 people, or would have scrounged to come up with something else.
When I took it into my co-workers the comment was "Wow, how did you come up with a perfect meal for all of us at such short notice." So, instead of feeling deprived, it looked like a perfect lunch for the 3 of us. Wow. They were right, and for the first time I felt the same way.
I just realized how skewed my view of a serving used to be, and how much better I am getting at a realistic view of food.
I will:Journal every bite * Be gentle to myself and my family * Exercise to the best of my ability * Drink at least 8 glasses of water * Focus on colorful veggies, salads, low gycemic fruit, lean proteins and healthy fats * Limit grains * Get up at the same time everyday and get back into routine * Visit 3FC every day, it makes a big difference to my attitude, thanks to the wonderful folks here.
