Before I even launch into my ideas, I want to affirm that YOU and a beautiful soul down to the core. No two people possess the exact same beauty. We are all a unique blend. It takes practice to align the inner and outer in such a powerfully congruent way.
Food is more than only sustenance. It can be social, represent family, memories and happiness, it brings pleasure, comfort, it is something to do when bored... Sometimes we mistake physical hunger for emotional hunger. It's complex.
Is this you? Do you find yourself caught up in that repeating cycle?
It's not only about looking good in a bikini (!!) It's your health!
Let's break the common misconceptions when it comes to diet. Sometimes, people tend to skip their meals or restrict their diets drastically with the thought that they are going to lose weight. Now, you don't have to restrict yourself from eating delicious yet healthy meals. You don't even need to break your budget just to complete one nutritious meal. You can eat to support weight loss or maintain a healthy weight...
Have you ever chosen a word for the year? It’s intended to be a theme for the upcoming year. It’s worth putting some thought into it because in my experience, it makes a difference. It’s an affirmation, it’s an intention.
The year I chose PATIENCE I ended up going through a few difficult things that required that quality, it wasn’t easy, but I did cultivate patience.
’ve been there! Wanting to hide beneath loose, black clothing. Wanting to stay home because nothing fits… Nothing looks good. It’s awful, and even if you know all of the advice about accepting your body as it is and dressing in clothes that show it off, accepting all of you, even the extra folds and bulges,) nothing helps you feel beautiful!
Have you been planning out your planning?
I know by the time November comes around have planners in my cart everywhere!! I'm on all of the mailing lists and targeted ads follow me around online. They've got my number!It's almost time for us to set our intentions, plan a theme for our year, kiss the old year goodbye and ORDER the dang planners.
Do you say grace or express appreciation for your food? Do you experience your food as sacred? Do you connect your meal times with social time with your family or friends? How are you connected with the food you take in to your body? Do you eat standing up as you do other things? Do you eat while you are both in front of the TV as well as checking your phone? Have you ever eaten while you were arguing? Do you throw a frozen meal into the microwave?
It’s all about shifting the negative judgments you hold over your body into self-acceptance and self-love. Once you are able to crack through those feelings of self-loathing and shame, you will WANT to feed yourself food that nourishes you! Releasing weight and normalizing your body size is a natural progression. On the other side of “dieting” lies freedom. Sometimes dieting is a comfort zone and the idea of letting up on the rules is daunting. Once you let up on all of your food “rules” (barring allergies and other necessities) you have the opportunity to find your OWN natural guidelines.
