Hi there! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I’ve got a lot in store for you coming up in the next few months! The summer long challenge, Self-Love Summer is starting up again on June 20! Ah!! More details to come.
Today’s topic is all about figuring out what is best for you when it comes to food and doing your best to stick with it.
With so much to look at, read, and compare to it can be hard to remember to do what’s best for you.
So, What are you struggling with right now when it comes to food?
Following someone else’s rules / plan isn’t necessarily going to help you move forward to balance. Someone else’s plan DOESN’T take into account how you feel on a daily basis, what foods give you fuel, your cravings and your lifestyle! Especially if you’re working on eating intuitively/listening to your body — you must determine what’s going to be best for you in order to get there. Get really clear on that so that way when you’re looking at what others are doing you aren’t tempted to jump on that train and push your progress backwards (but if that does happen, it’s okay — you’re human)!
Bottom line: Remember why you want balance and what’s going to be the best for you to get there. Get rid of or limit the influences that are not inline with your vision and current needs.
Have tunnel vision and focus on who you need to become and how you’re going to make it there. NOW you can get there. Having this clarity will make it easier to follow through with what’s best for you most of the time.
Along with this, know your Top Priorities in life. These will can guide you with questions like:
- Is this right for me?
- Is this in line with my priorities?
- Am I only doing this because someone else is?
- Is this right for my heart?
Examples of potential Top Priorities:
- relationships (friends, significant others, family)
- financial goals
- relationship to food
- mental health
- physical health
I hope this post has helped you refresh your mindset. This was simply a reminder to be selfish with your relationship to food — worry about YOU & what’s going to be the most beneficial for you! 🙂
