For our last journal prompt I'd like to revisit the first one. Take stock and answer these questions again. Then go back to your first responses and see what changes you've experienced.
"How have you been feeling lately? Emotionally, physically, and mentally. Take a few moments and just take inventory in all three areas. We often don't realize just how much certain foods and our eating habits in general affect us.
Take note of everything you can think of. Revisit this journal entry if you think of other things to add. How are your energy levels? How is your sleep? How is your hairand skin? Your joints? How are your workouts going? How's your sex drive and your stress levels? How about your relationship with food? Are you comfort eating, binge eating, compulsive eating, self-medicating with food, not eating enough, eating past full... Do you have any aches, pains, or headaches going on consistently? Are you mostly happy, sad, mad, scared...
Now, I'm not saying this challenge is going to 'cure' anything, but I think it's important to take a hard look at where we are right now. It's amazing what we live with on a daily basis and often barely notice it anymore. By writing it all out you will have something to look back on at the end of the challenge and really see what has improved and what may have been food-connected.
Also, take your weight and measurements. I recommend doing this only once and then again at the end of the challenge."
I hope you've all seen positive changes! I'd love to hear about them.
I want to thank everyone that has gone through this challenge with me (whether you made it the whole way or not!). I have immensely enjoyed the facebook group. You have all inspired me.
