Happy Monday!! I feel like I’m moving a little slower than usual today. And that’s probably because I have a flight this morning to Santa Ynez and I don’t want to commit to actually packing. Luckily (except kind of unluckily) United is not letting certain passengers carry on their luggage – basic economy doesn’t have the right to bring a carry-on, I guess – so I’m forced to check a bag. SO I am taking my giant bag with me so I don’t have to puzzle piece my luggage together. Still, I don’t want to pack. So I’m dilly-dallying around the house, needing to wash my hair and walk the dog and drink more coffee than usual. I’ll get there…at some point.
In case you missed it on the podcast this week, I talked about Creating a Better Relationship w/ Food. And this topic really holds true for me, especially when going on vacation or a trip. Before, I would obsess about trying to lose as much weight as I could before a trip, then I wouldn’t want to eat on the trip, and it was this constant struggle between wanting to eat and enjoy the things I love the most, while not wanting to hate myself for eating. It was a constant battle. And a completely destructive one.
Today I leave for a trip and because I make great decisions at home both in the gym and in the kitchen, I’m not worried about not having a home cooked meal for 5 days. I’m still incorporating fitness into this trip, including CrossFit, pilates, and hopefully Orange Theory and I’ll still be enjoying all the prosecco, but that can happen since I’ve been able to find peace with food. I no longer see food as the enemy, I see it as fuel. I see it as enjoyment. And I see it as an experience. And with having that inner peace, I no longer struggle with starving myself and then later binging.
This sort of freedom takes time and takes work, but it is possible. I highly recommend listening to my latest podcast because I talk about all the different things that gave me that freedom and how I continue to work hard to make sure those negative feelings and behaviors don’t take over again! In the meantime, I need to pack and hop on a plane! Have a wonderful Monday! And be sure to check back in tomorrow because I have an awesome breakfast recipe coming your way!
