Goooooood morning out there!! It’s been a slow moving Monday here, but I’m still pumped for a productive week. I woke up at 5am but then went to the couch to sleep with my dog until 6:30. Crushing it.
I’ve been thinking a lot about mindset lately. I think because it’s often something that is forgotten about come summertime. We are all constantly doing things, going on vacations, visiting with friends, having backyard BBQs and spending weekends outside with the ones we love. Life is a little less structured come summer. And it’s pretty easy for those moments to catch up with us. Then before we know it, all the hard work we put into building muscle, losing weight, staying active…well a lot of it is lost in the midst. But there can be a balance.
I recently shared a podcast episode about getting back on track after vacation and I’m honestly always a little struck at how easy it can be as long as you’re willing to stay structured for a few days. When I go on vacations, I really enjoy myself. I try to stay active and eat balanced meals, but I also enjoy some cocktails and desserts. So when I get back home, I stay away from alcohol and sugar, and I create meals FILLED with veggies, healthy fats, and clean protein. And within days, I can already see changes physically. Within 2 weeks, I’m usually back to where I started. And this is coming from a person who puts on weight quite easily.
I don’t wallow in frustration anymore when I gain weight, I just simply know what I need to do. And all I need to do is clean my sh*t up. It’s very eye opening that weight loss can actually be quite simple as long as you’re willing to listen to your body and it’s true needs (not it’s sugar demon needs). After 2 weeks of taking better care of myself while still having a few treats and a couple drinks, I’m feeling back to myself. Summer may get the best of us at times, but remember it’s easy to get back on track as long as you know it is! You can do this!
