Hope you are having a wonderful week and getting excited for Memorial Weekend.
I want to say this first, thank you, thank you to all who have and are currently serving this great country, we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
Today I want to dig into consistency.
When working through a health and wellness journey you are going to have ups and downs.
It’s part of the process.
How you handle or get through the ups and downs is what’s most important.
–> You will have wonderful days.
–> You will have awful days.
This is where our relationship with food matters and most importantly how we cope matters.
If you have always turned to food for comfort, we have to find another way to cope.
It can be a vicious cycle.
Listen, I am embarrassed to say this but I would turn to wine or beer to escape my emotions.
I had to do the hard work and I wanted to do the hard work to end the cycle.
It wasn’t healthy.
What was I really doing?
We can’t escape our emotions, we need to process our emotions.
I find going for a walk, listening to music, taking a bath, journaling, talking through it to be my best medicine.
Another super helpful technique I have found is to be in gratitude.
Writing down 3-5 statements of gratitude and then reading them when life is handing it to you.
If we always believe we are in chaos then that’s what you will constantly feel and see turn up in our life.
It is an awful cycle.
I challenge you to break it.
Step back and see the good that is happening.
Flip the situation.
Maybe that crisis is happening for a reason, typically we are blind and can’t see it, but find the good.
Ask yourself what good can happen from this?
It is always there!
If you find yourself struggling with stringing together enough good weeks with food…
Or something is always throwing your weight loss journey off…
