This is the kind of title I would read and want juicy gossip. But you should know me better and know that my life is pretty boring and drama free. Just the way I like it.
The relationship I am speaking about is my relationship with food and my body. It’s the most unhealthy relationship I have. I have been counting and classifying food since I was 12 years old. I’ve done ever single diet and workout plan known to man. And none of that had been sustainable for me, obviously.
So, I am working on something new. I’m working on my relationship with food- as far as restricting or classifying it as good and bad. I am working on not overeating at meals, and not eating after dinner. I am not counting my calories. I am trying to focus on protein and vegetables and fruit. But no food is off limits. I’m trying to listen to my body’s hunger signals and act accordingly.
These thoughts have always been in the back of my mind. Recently, a nutritionist spoke at my gym and she said these same things and that really resonated with me. And the thing that finally got me to trust my gut was my friend Stacy – she is a proponent of this way of thinking and offers support by way of a blog, a newsletter, and support group that are uber helpful in my journey. She is a trainer and body pump instructor at my gym. She offers so many 20 minute at home workouts that are so helpful at this juncture in my life. I love my gym so much it’s just not usually practical for me to go as I’d have to hire a sitter most times.
So, that’s where I am now. Hopefully this will eventually lead to weight loss.
Anyway, onto other topics. Tomorrow is my last day of school with the kids. I have to go back Tuesday for a meeting and for 8th grade graduation then I’m completely finished!. I am so excited, I can’t stand it. I am so ready for this summer. Henry and I are going to make a bucket list of all of the things we want to do this summer!
