Nothing in life is a straight line, we are either totally on the path or walking on the edge of it, and sometimes we are even off the course.
This week I was on the course, my eating was aligned with my goals, and I increased my steps every day, adding 22,926 over my average steps for a total of 59,926 for the week.
My Hydration was down the last 3 days, as I had accidentally been exposed to a food that I am allergic to. Blessed with a rash and the whole 9 yards. As a result, inflammation was up. However, my weight is stable for this week, and I consider it a win!
This journey is about healthy habits and optimal health for longevity. The weight will release as long as I continue to do what I know will align with me and allow me to reach my goal. I am living boldly because I know nothing is in a straight line, we have experiences along the way, and those experiences learned are valuable.
Many people look at holidays and events as an opportunity to have an eating free-for-all, but holidays come every year it’s not like we’re running out of them they simply come every year!
My goal is always to stay in alignment with my goals, I can easily enjoy the day and taste a little bit of what I would like to taste without going overboard.
Optimal Health is more important than a sugar high today!
If we don’t overeat, we leave more for the rest of the world, we have a sense of knowing that all of our needs are met.
Overeating is a way of saying there is not enough I must get mine now, I will eat more than I need because I may not have more later; however, we’re not squirrels we cannot Store the food in our cheeks. Unfortunately, it often falls to places on our bodies that disappoint us.
Taking a moment to look at our part in how our body is or isn't is a valuable exercise. Think back to the shadow exercise (article on this blog earlier this fall). How do you want your body to look? Remember where the mind goes the body follows. Do you want it to look like the too much pie and cake body, or more like the lean and green meals that make a huge difference in the results you are getting?
Overeating: It's an emotional way of saying that there is not enough, and of course, there is; there is always more than enough; the idea is to enjoy the day, enjoy the people, enjoy the food, and be grateful without giving up a part of ourselves that was not intended.
Eating healthy, even on holidays, is a form of self-respect.
