. the secret to having a fabulous day .

July 14, 2011

‘Ello ๐Ÿ˜€

Want to know my secret to having a fabulous day?

Start it in a fabulous way! (Dr. Seuss, eat your heart out)

After being less than impressed with yesterday’s breakfast deviation, this morning I decided to screw the whole variety thingย and just go back to my tried-and-true beloved bowl of oats: eggified, banafied, and topped with almond butter and pudding. Dee-licious. Always puts a smile on my face.

And while it would be considered bad science to conclude that a satisfying breakfast was the only reason that today was so terrific, I canย say thatย it definitely didn’t hurt ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nor did enjoying dessert [and reading] after lunch…

And while we’re at it, a delicious dinner probably played its part, too.

Any guesses as to where I’m going with all this? Besides taste bud heaven?

Food, my dear friends. Food is the secret behind having a fabulous day. The right kind (ie. what you crave), and the right amount (ie. not too much/little).

Alright, so maybe it’s not quiteย that simple, but there’s no denying that food is a necessary part of the equation. Without food there is no health, and without health there is no happiness.

And there’s no shame in enjoying food and admitting that it can put a smile on our face, either. All those warnings about the dangers of “emotional eating” are a load of crap. What’s wrong with treating myself to something that I know will put a smile on my face?

Nothing. at. all. Swoooooon.

About a week ago, I made the decision to increase how much I was eating in an attempt to combat general feelings of “offness”.ย It definitely wasn’t the easiest thing to do… especially because I didn’t knowย whether or not my ‘offness’ was actually caused by hungerย or something else, but seeing as how my symptoms always seemed to disappear after I had something to eat, I figured that hunger was probably the most likely culprit.ย And it appears that it was…

After a week or so of eating more… there’s no more offness. No more irritability. No more hyperactivity. No more inability to concentrate. And no more constant thoughts of food.

Thank goodness for that…

I absolutely hated feeling scatterbrained and not being able to think about anything besides what I was going to eat next, so if I felt those feelings start to creep in, I would simply grab something to eat, and the thoughts would disappear and I would be free to go on with my day. Eat and move on… I like it ๐Ÿ˜€

Quite a few people expressed the same kind of uncertainty when it came to identifying the signs of true hunger, and from my own experiences, the best advice I can give you is this…

If you think you might be hungry, then you probably are. If you can’t stop thinking about food, then you should probably eat more. If you’re tired, irritable, and feeling “off”, then don’t be afraid to grab a snack. I promise you that you won’t “balloon up”, and you willย feel 100x better. It might be hard to believe, but you’ll be amazed at how big of a difference even the slightest increase in intake can make on your overall quality of life. And who doesn’t want to enjoy fabulous days? ๐Ÿ˜€

Does anyone have any similar experiences that they want to share?

    AMEN girl! And I agree….food really can make or break a day. And I totally think food can make ya feel better. And whats wrong with that? Screw all that stuff about emotional eating being bad….as long as you’re picking things that your body truly wants and needs I don’t see and issue with it at all! Its all about listening to our bodies! Great post Amanda!

    Every word of what you’re saying is true :), I’m glad to hear that the simple solution was eating more- I gotta say I find it exciting when I realize how much food I actually need to sustain my energy, it’s a blessing for sure.
    I’ve had a lotttttt of experience in having my energy levels plummet when I wasn’t eating enough (or not eating the right stuff- aka lacking enough carbohydrates or sodium in my diet), but when I eat properly what I crave and am satiated life is a 1,000,000 better and I’m not obsessing about food 24/7!

    • July 14, 2011 8:50 pm

      The sodium thing is actually something I noticed as well. If I don’t add salt to my food, my blood pressure gets way too low and I’m tiiiiiiired.

  3. July 14, 2011 5:39 pm

    Very true!
    I’ve been eating coconut milk ice cream every night since I injured my back. Emotional eating? Why the hell not! Because it totally made me feel better and was exactly what I wanted ๐Ÿ™‚

        sorry to jump in hear. But I have been reading your blog for a while and I have been also reading all of your old blog urm sorry for the stalker:p but you will make an absolutely amazing clinical psychologist, I absolutely adore reading all your blog entries you really are so inspiring.

      • July 15, 2011 3:46 pm

        Yess I totally agree with Jenn, Amanda!! I am encouraged by how you’ve come such a long way, and are well rounded in how you encourage and teach others! I also agree that eating the perfect amount of what we need is so important! I think I’ve been eating a little more lately b/c I’m connnnnstantly hungry! But I think it’s also affected by my workout patterns and the fact that I’m more active….? I do weigh a few lbs. heavier as of late, actually! But I feel like I look the same and all, so I’m thinking I’ve just gotten more muscular? Because you know what they say~!! If you want bulk, then feed the muscle! If you don’t, then eat lighter foods. But having a healthy outlook to all this is so important., and I’m trying to be as healthy as possible in that manner although it’s not always easy being a woman! ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a beautiful day

  5. July 14, 2011 5:49 pm

    Hip Hip Hurray for food! That’s so great that the increased food has helped with your off-ness, just goes to show that listening to the body is the way to go! This post is a great enforcement to that fact ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. July 14, 2011 5:52 pm

    Today I had such a lame-o food day, and it’s funny because it makes me feel like the ENTIRE day was lame-o. I think I’ll pack an exciting lunch tomorrow to up my spirits ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay for no more offness!- seems like you are really getting increasingly in tune with your bod – which is awesome!
    Ignoring hunger and not allowing yourself yummy foods you’re craving=miserable day , for sure.
    I hate the way the media practically makes eating for enjoyment shameful these days-promoting ways to stop you listening to your body /appetite. Brushing your teeth the minute you have finished a meal, sprays to to spray on your food to suppress appetite(whaaa?), drinking water to fill you up etc. Craziness.
    Gorgous looking eats,& love your mug at breakfast.

    I know exactly what you mean about changing up breakfast! Sometimes I just want to concoct a new kind of meal– but end up screwing myself (and my satisfaction) over! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Rule of thumb: Eat what you truly crave for breakfast & love every second of doing so ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. July 14, 2011 6:14 pm

    For so long I felt as though I was supposed to eat a certain amount — the same amount every day. But there were days when I wanted more or less, but I forced myself to have this specific amount. WHY??? There are days when I want an extra helping of this or that, and there are days when I’m just not as hungry as normal. Now that is ok with me. But its taken me a long time to get to that point.

  10. July 14, 2011 6:15 pm

    Love this post girl!! I’ve upped my cals lately too and have experienced the same positive benefits ๐Ÿ™‚ Your recipe for a great day is right on, any day with good eats is awesome in my book!

  11. July 14, 2011 6:19 pm

    Good food always makes me feel better! Cars can’t function without gas, and our bodies can’t function without food. And by bodies, I mean EVERYTHING we possess in ourselves…our brains, our emotions, our moods, our energy levels, our stress levels, our ability to move our legs from one room to the next. Everything will go downhill if we don’t eat enough. Except our stress levels…those will go up! I’m really glad you’ve realized that upping your food intake makes you feel healthier. I know that whenever I go too long without enough food, I become a bitter monster and a stress case. And I wholeheartedly agree with you about eating food that we know will make us happy. Why eat something if it won’t also serve as a mood lifter? Good food = therapy…whether or not people like to admit it!

  12. July 14, 2011 6:22 pm

    Girl, what you are saying is toooo true! Food is so important and can make or break your day. It may not be the number one thing, but when your eating is off like it was before you increased your intake, you can end up feeling like crap all the time. Food can also make your day in the form of ice cream ๐Ÿ™‚ or even carrots! Whatever tastes good.

    I’m actually doing the same thing right now. It’s made such a big difference. Sad thing is i still need to up my intake. Actually, that might not be too sad.. another few scoops of peanut butter in my day sure would lead to an extra fabulous day!

  13. July 14, 2011 6:24 pm

    Hello love!

    Im glad your breakfast was better than yesterday, breakfast always sets the tone for my day, love having a breakfast that makes me and my tummy smile ; )

    I eat what I want and when i want, ha! End of story ; ) I just listen to my body, and honor it, my body is my temple, and I only have one, have to be treating it right : )

    LOVE the cone with the ice cream yum, Im craving a cone now with some coconut bliss : )

    have a good night!
    xoxo โค

  14. July 14, 2011 6:28 pm

    You mean the secret to an awesome day is NOT starting it off by seeing someone you don’t want to see?! *utter shock* Bummer.

    It’s awesome to hear that simply eating more has solved your feeling “off” — I decided that I ought to increase my intake, for pretty much the same reason, but I did not experience any such miracle cure. Unless I didn’t increase it enough, which is rather scary to think…

    And I just have to say, I love that photo with the upside down ice cream cone. I have no idea why I find it so hysterically funny, but I just do.

    I love it–give in when your body tells you to eat! Such a simple concept but it’s hard to accept. And I love that picture of the protein ball and book–it’s so cute and I’m pinning it ASAP (linking back to you of course) hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. July 14, 2011 6:37 pm

    Interesting take – glad to hear your thoughts on the topic. I’m glad you’re back on a happy oats kick. They make me happy too!

  17. July 14, 2011 6:38 pm

    food is love ๐Ÿ™‚ oatmeal always makes me smile ( I need to try pudding on mine though!!)

  18. July 14, 2011 6:44 pm

    I used to constantly snack & nibble and then I decided to figure out what was going on.. Iit turned out to be a nervous habit…instead of knowing how to deal with my frustrations – I would snack… I agree with you that if your hungry, you prob are — but sometimes it’s about more than that – for me it was about “breaking the habit” Just my opinion — xoxox

    Ya, I am feeling like this now. Desperately trying to work through it but it is definitely hard. Under eating pretty much dead sets you for feeling like…well…shit.

  20. July 14, 2011 6:52 pm

    Thanks for this post! I was sitting here debating on whether I’m actually hungry or not and yes, it turns out I was. It’s still hard for me to identify those signs. Especially because it seems like I eat a ton of food already but I guess it may not be enough since I’ve definitely been feeling the “offness.” I’m a new reader and I’m loving your posts. I mean I can pretty much relate to everything! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am so getting puddings next time I visit the store. Your breakfast looks absolutely delicious!

    i’m glad that eating more helped you feel better! i really love and appreciate the topics you explore on your blog. i find them so relatable, and so balanced. i definitely still struggle with a lot of disordered eating thoughts, but your posts help me keep things in perspective ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. July 14, 2011 7:06 pm

    Yay I’m glad you’re feeling better! I think there are so many different ways our body can tell us that we’re hungry and that we need to eat more. Also, with as much activity that you and I do, we don’t need to worry about ballooning up…that’s definitely something I continually have to remind myself of b/c I can freak out a bit after indulging.

  23. July 14, 2011 7:19 pm

    Honestly, right now I am just not satisfied after I eat. I don’t know if I’m still hungry either. I haven’t been feeling that hungry lately also. I don’t know what’s going on.

  24. July 14, 2011 7:25 pm

    Awesome post! I totally know what you mean – sometimes it’s so hard to tell if I am hungry or not, until I sit down with a plate of food and DEVOUR it like a madwoman.
    No shame in eating for pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. July 14, 2011 7:32 pm

    I’ve definitely had the “but i think i eat enough!’ feeling before – I just bite the bullet and eat more (how horrible, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    I loved “Her Fearful Symmetry” – I read it last summer!

    wonderful post. Sounds like you are really listening to your brain and your appetite now with intuitive eating, which is so important!! Thanks so much for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. July 14, 2011 8:14 pm

    This post made me smile, right from the title. My dad is practically obsessed with the word “fabulous.” If you ask him how he is, it is always “Fabulous!” with a huge grin, and his work and cell answering machine both include the saying “I’m having a fabulous day and I hope you are too.”

    …I guess you are having a fabulous day! My Dad would be so pleased.

  30. July 14, 2011 8:36 pm

    I totally agree with what you said. My mom keeps telling me to watch what I eat (even thought I’m quite skinny) but I try to ignore her and just eat until my body is full.
    The pizza looks so good… And how is “Her Fearful Symmetry?” I’m looking for new books to read (:

  31. July 14, 2011 8:48 pm

    With my recent troubles with some dairy products and lack of hunger, I’ve definitely been eating way less than I should. I didn’t even think much of it- I just ate when I felt hunger and that was that. Little did I know that my stomach issues were blocking out obvious “hunger” signals- instead I was feeling it in so many other ways that I just couldn’t quite understand. I would wake up- hungry- eat my oats, and go back to bed because I was exhausted for no good reason. I felt cranky and irritable, foggy, groggy, you know- the works. Nothing alarming but nothing good.

    I’ve upped my intake in the past few days (as you know, thanks again for the advice. Love you!), and I’m already feeling 100x better! While I do still think about how badly I want to try something new that I just bought or the like, I’m not constantly thinking about food even when I’m not “hungry”.

    Oh, the wonders of food. Who knew? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  32. July 14, 2011 9:09 pm

    Great post! Sounds like you’re so in tune with your body ๐Ÿ™‚ It must be all of your amazing eats! Love that mug, btw!

  33. July 14, 2011 9:30 pm

    YES YES AND YES! If you’re thinking about food all the time, maybe your tummy might not feel hungry but your MIND certainly is. Food isn’t just about feeding the body, it’s about feeding the mind too. If you don’t eat something that satisfies you, your body might feel full but your mind isn’t. Does that make sense?

    You rock. Make me oats now.

    Wonderful post Amanda!
    I so have to agree with Jenn, you would be a fantastc person for young girls to talk with! And it makes me SO happy that that is your plan too! You will be the best one ever! Thank you for always sharing your thoughts and being so open to us!
    I think about food all the time, and I realize more and more that this is a sign of hunger. I always though i should wait till my tummy sreamed for food. But the more I think of it, cravings, thinking of food, sadness etc are all hunger-signs. I look forward to trust those signs more too ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love this: “thereโ€™s no shame in enjoying food…” It is such a truth, yet a lot of us was brought up in a surroundings that tought us that food is just a food and we should eat it alone, quickly and only when necessary…Food should be enjoyed, it should be a part of our life we arenยดt ashamed of.

  36. July 14, 2011 10:55 pm

    Thanks for inspiring everybody once again, Amanda! I needed just a little motivation too. Yesterday at dinner I decided to eat until I was full for a change. I did it and then the late night desire to binge on everything in sight disappeared at once. I didn’t have any insatiable cravings and it was such a relief! I must really listen to the signals my body sends me a little more ๐Ÿ™‚ .

  37. July 14, 2011 11:58 pm

    Eating truly does make one feel better, especially nourishing food that you crave!

  38. July 15, 2011 12:54 am

    I definitely agree that if you’re thinking about food, you need some in yo belly!!
    When I was going through my disordered eating phase, I was constantly thinking about food…now, because I listen what my body wants and needs, it’s not the only thing on my mind! ๐Ÿ˜€

  39. July 15, 2011 2:53 am

    Its taken me a long long time but I’ve finally figured out my hunger cues rather than boredom and stress hunger and I’m more than happy to eat when I need to. In the past I would get to the point of feeling faint and physically sick before I would eat (by that point all the pleasure of eating was lost), now I make sure I eat well before I reach that point. I still have to find the right balance but I’m slowly getting there!

  40. July 15, 2011 3:43 am

    Aww girly, I’m so so glad you’re feeling better ๐Ÿ™‚ I find food such an amazing thing. I mean, it is full of nutrients and is basically our fuel for life and the power that it has not only on our bodies but also our minds is so complicated! Back in my ED days when I was obviously not eating anything like enough, food just took over my mind. My everyday was filled with thoughts of food and gosh it was so depressing. Now that I eat when I’m hungry the thoughts aren’t taking over my everyday life and I can actually focus on other things and be more productive (until I get hungry again :P) which is SUCH a relief. And not only that, but when I was constantly thinking about food, being depressed, I wasn’t a pleasant, happy person to be around. Now I feel so much happier, confident and want to talk to people.
    I totally agree though. There is no shame in enjoying food. We only have one body and one life so we might aswell enjoy it whilst we can!

  41. July 15, 2011 5:34 am

    Amen to this Amanda! I think about food CONSTANTLY and I know it’s because I have spent years depriving myself of such an essential thing! I am working so hard to listen to when I am hungry and just eat… it’s as simple as that, and it can be done ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. July 15, 2011 5:47 am

    So true! Eating good food can always put me in a good mood. ๐Ÿ˜€ And obviously eating enough, too. I was always so cranky and depressed when I wasn’t eating enough (but actually that was because low fat diet = not enough fat to make certain hormones and neurotransmitters = depression). Now I still sometimes get cranky, but I know it’s not due to malnourishment haha! ๐Ÿ˜›

  43. July 15, 2011 7:00 am

    Glad you’re feeling better! I tried switching up my breakfast the other day and it just wasn’t the same. This morning I made sure to start my breakfast off with my normal and I’m feeling so much better. I’ve noticed if I’m still thinking about food, my next meal, and when i can eat next it usually means I’m still hungry. Once I eat something I feel so much better and can actually focus

  44. July 15, 2011 7:51 am

    First of all – I love your photography! Also? This absolutely looks like the perfect day to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    And when it comes to decoding “hunger” I usually don’t question my body. If I’m hungry, I just eat ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. July 15, 2011 8:05 am

    I’m glad that things have improved from eating more. Food is an amazing thing! I grew up eating in front of the television and to this day when I sit down to watch something I don’t feel right if I’m not eating. I used to grab something to snack on while watching shows even if I had just eaten a meal. I knew that wasn’t true hunger but wasn’t sure about other times.

    Now that I’ve started eating small things every couple of hours I feel *so* much better! I don’t constantly think about food, I’m always satisfied and I feel happier.

  46. July 15, 2011 8:53 am

    food = the answer to all of life’s problems. Haha, not really, but many of them! I can’t thank you enough for your posts. It’s so important to have people out there posting about the importance of eating enough. Our bodies work hard every single day and I don’t think very many people realize just how much fuel we actually need to thrive. My workouts are always wayyy better (and more fun!) when I eat well.

  47. July 15, 2011 9:08 am

    That jittery, hyperactive feeling you described usually happens to me before bed. If I can’t settle into sleep too fast I know that its because I didn’t eat enough. Just this morning at 12:30am I fixed one of these http://www.loveveggiesandyoga.com/2011/01/microwave-banana-oat-cakes-fave-banana.html to calm the sensation and finally fall asleep. And I thought I had eaten more than enough for dinner…but sometimes we misinterpret our needs.

  49. July 15, 2011 10:10 am

    I love the mug pictured in the first photo! What an inspirational reminder to start the the day with. Where did you find it?

    I’m all too familiar with hunger confusion…It’s taken me years to figure out how to best hone in on those signals–how to satisfy myself both physically and emotionally without going to extremes. While there’s been major improvement, I’m still working on figuring it out. ๐Ÿ™‚ But one thing I know for sure is: a well-fed body = a healthy and happy mind, body and soul.

    Happy Friday, Amanda!

    Couldn’t have said it better myself! ๐Ÿ™‚ I swear when I eat a good breakfast I instantly have more energy and feel like I will have a wonderful day. And if I had that beautiful pizza and delicious looking ice cream throughout my day I’d most definitely be one happy camper ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. July 15, 2011 10:53 am

    Sometimes I’m not hungry, per se, at least not in the “my stomach is growling” kind of way, but I can tell I need to eat because I suddenly feel like I have no energy and I’m crabby. Those aren’t the most pleasant signs to have to deal with but as soon as I notice either one, I grab something to eat. You rock, Amanda. I love your attitude and reading such honest and happy posts just makes my day ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. July 15, 2011 11:32 am

    Beautiful! So true. Good food really makes all the difference in the world. I’m so happy that you are finding what works for you, eating more and feeling better. YAY! It makes me so happy to see people truly nourishing/nurturing themselves and honoring their needs. You are an inspiration and I love you so much! Keep on shining and sharing your light, love โค

    I experience the same questions about hunger and how much to eat all the time. It’s difficult sometimes because I’m afraid, if I obey what I consider to be “hunger” pangs, I’ll end up over-eating, but I also hate those feelings of fatigue, irritability, inability to concentrate, etc., so it’s worth eating more just to feel vibrantly alive!

    Thank you for this post–it’s exactly what I needed to read today. I was just having some little struggles this afternoon. โค

    You know this post makes me jump with joy, Amanda ๐Ÿ˜€
    Proud is an understatement, but I can’t find another word in my dictionary ( which is quite a huge one ) to describe what I feel for you.

    This was a challenge, but you confronted it and did what was necessary. It’s a clear proof of your commitment to recovery and life, you decided to provide your body with health and strength even what that meant dealing with uncomfortable emotions for a while. As you realized, this anxiety is temporary as we gradually realize that eating more can benefit our soul in the most beautiful way. Think about the food as a way of making sure that you continue to be YOU, the amazing, bright and passionate Amanda. The person we all love and whom we hope love herself too.

    I’ve had countless of similar experiences, each time I increase actually! I am anxious and have to deal with the voice telling me it is all wrong, but once I do it it feels so incredibly good and liberating. A felt experience of what it means to be able to take care of my life.

    Love you Amanda – know that this post will inspire and help so many fighters out there.

    PS : One day we'll be swooning together over a nice bowl of ice cream.

    This post is basically awesome, you took the words right out of my mouth! Call it emotional eating but good food makes me happy and can lift my spirits…funnily enough, even looking at good food (e.g. That ice cream cone) makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I so, so agree with this post. Food makes or breaks my day. I am always confusing to whether or not I truly am hungry and lately I’ve been feeling “off”. It’s probably because I eat about 2 meals for no reason other than nausea. This post has inspired me to eat more and eat health(ier), though I’ll definitely be having that cookies n’ cream fro yo today!
