Still holding onto dieting? Here's 8 reasons why...
Intellectually you probably feel like you understand that dieting and the sort of stress and pressure involved doesn’t really work.
You know...the planning, the rules, even the narrowly contained "cheat days" or "cheat meals." The inner pang when one of your girlfriends starts sharing with heroic verve about how amazing she feels now that she's started this new thing with her diet.
Resources I think you'll love (and a pic that cracks me up)
I hope you had a satisfying holiday weekend.
Something I'd NEVER imagined myself doing before - tooling around on this John Deere lawnmower that now takes residence at my home - amused me to no end this past weekend.
Want centered eating habits? Tend to THIS bodily system
One evening on a Thursday not too long ago, my partner was at the office until about 9pm. I had no clients scheduled that particular evening.
After I made myself a very simple meal for one: leftover sweet potatoes with tahini, some organic turkey slices wrapped around avocado, a few cucumber slices, and some dark chocolate, a familiar restlessness arose.
Why you might eat...right after eating
Today we’re exploring a very specific pattern I see with clients.
Women who take pride in getting things done, often report a habit of eating…after having eaten.
Take Sally for example:
Sally’s work day is ending. She gets home, starts thinking about dinner. She pulls a bag of organic Asian veggies out of the freezer to make a quick stir-fry.
She sits down to enjoy. She’s approaching “satisfied,” even “full” but next thing she knows, she’s getting another helping, and then having a couple handfuls of chips...then a little icecream.
No, she’s not binge eating. She just ends up feeling really full. She knows that she was satisfied earlier, so why did she keep eating?
I couldn't get motivated. Then this happened...
Not long ago, I almost passed this tiny creature on a rainy stroll through country roads near my home one evening.
I assumed it was just another rock, but something slowed me down as I passed by.
I backed up and crouched down to get a better look.
Nutritional Detox: bad move or wise therapy?
After about a year and a half of taking a break due to an unusual amount of international travel, I've gotten back to my regular seasonal nutritional therapy protocols and practices.
I was working on my digestive strength by way of decongesting the liver and gallbladder. (These organs work hard for us!)
For me, working with these organs results most notably in more restful sleep, more energy, and less bloating.
What freedom looks like + NEW PROGRAM
The thing about freedom and confidence around eating, is that they're not as easily measured as, say, a pay raise or counting calories, points, or macro-nutrients.
Numbers are much easier to track down on paper.
Freedom and confidence around eating are felt on the inside.
3 edgy mantras to liberate eating
Truth be told, I don't have a grand story about waking up one morning feeling like a new woman eating fully free. But I will say, quite positively, it seems like shifting my way of relating to eating and to myself was a progression of openings. My first real opening began with a "maybe."
