#083 - Comparison & feeling less-than

I feel compelled to remind you today to be selfish in your journey of eating intuitively and making peace with food. This is about YOU and ONLY YOU.  We so often compare, look at other's and think, "should I be like this?" It looks like they're doing it right. That pushes us FURTHER from freedom. Keeps us stuck. Keeps us from moving forward and thinking there's noway "we could do that."  Turn that "Should I be like this?" question back on yourself and think..... is that something I would/could do? Something I even want? Why does that look exciting to me? How can I incorporate that in my life?  This is ALL about you. The habits You need to change. How YOU work. How YOU thrive. I can't stress this enough.

#067 - Travel tips for BALANCE!

Today I am sharing 3 ways to feel great, balanced, refreshed, alert & energized while traveling THROUGH my own experience!! There are two reasons I’m sharing this with you all: I used to binge and not move my body during every vacation/trip/travel for about 4 years of my life. I’d get home from wherever it was and just feel guilty, ashamed, gross, and like I needed to “diet back down.” It was a vicious cycle. I want to help anyone else who might struggle with this! I hate the feeling of “needing a vacation from my vacation” and I believe that we can all come back from trips feeling BETTER than when we left. This took practice & work for me, but I really feel like I’ve gotten to a place that I know what works for me to feel great when I get back from traveling!

#068 - Do you understand your cravings?

When I was hardcore dieting I thought I “wasn’t allowed” to be craving certain foods, and totally thought something was wrong with me when I “Gave in” and had something I was craving if it didn’t fit into my current diet plan. THEN, when I started working on making peace with food I got so confused about my cravings… Did I have to eat everything I was craving in that moment? Was it “bad” that I was craving a lot of the junk I previously didn’t allow myself to have? Was something wrong with me? Now, I generally know what foods I crave. I have them on hand at home most of the time. If I can’t get a hold of something I’m reeally craving I make it a point to tell myself that the next time I’m hungry and have a chance to go get some I will. Cravings are a normal thing, and with this post I am not trying to get us to overanalyze anything – I’m simply trying to get us to think a little about our cravings.
