โฃI know summer weekends get tricky. In fact, weekends used to be the one thing that held me back from seeing the results I was working so hard for. Iโ€™d do so well and be so restrictive Monday through Friday, then the weekend would hit and so would the train wreck… ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ณ?! โฃ

This is where calorie cycling can really come in handy. Think of your calories like a bank account.

I almost always pack food when I head to my sister’s for the day on Sunday. She expects it so it’s become normal and no one bugs me about it. Remember the first time you do it, you may get questions, but the more CONSISTENT you are with it, the less questions you’ll get and the more expected the behavior becomes. โฃ
  1. ๐˜Ž๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ˆ๐˜•๐˜‹ ๐˜›๐˜ˆ๐˜’๐˜Œ. If you really want dessert, have it, but understand that may mean you skip the wine or the bread. If it’s something special you only have one time a year, of course enjoy, but if it’s a store bought cookie you won’t even really enjoy, maybe it’s not worth it. โฃ
  2. ๐˜™๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ง ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ด. Some weeks you may fully want to accept that you won’t lose weight and you really want to relax and indulge and that is FINE. Some weeks you may want to consider that this will set your progress back, the scale may be up for a week, you may wake up the next morning puffy, and with a little regret. If that’s worth it for you, go for it, but other weeks you may decide it’s not, and try to keep remembering how your choices are going to make you feel for the LONG TERM and not just in that moment. โฃ
  1. Understand that it is 100% in your CONTROL. No one is forcing you to diet, and no one is forcing you to indulge. You always have a choice and are in control, the more you view it in this manner, the easier it becomes to make the choice that you want the most. โฃ

โฃOne last piece, try not to compare. Sometimes it can be tough to look around, see everyone else indulging and feel like you can’t, but you don’t know where they’re at. Maybe they’re incredibly unhappy in their own skin, maybe they’re struggling with health issues you know nothing about (๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜บ), maybe they haven’t eaten all day and this is the only thing they’ll have, maybe they’ve restricted all week. We’re all on our own journeys so we cannot compare and we never know the whole picture! โฃ

One of my biggest gripes with transformation pictures is we often donโ€™t realize the time it took to get to that final transformation. I was guilty of it for so long too. I would compare my own lack of progress 1 year in to someone elseโ€™s incredible transformation that took them 10 years to build.โฃ

I repeat those phrases to myself quite often on a daily basis. โฃ
โฃ
I was also too embarrassed to share for fear of sounding like a crazy person, but if I can help one person by sharing, it is worth every bit of it. โฃ
โฃ
It’s no secret anxiety is something I struggle with. Stopping to breathe along with those two phrases has gotten me through some really tough times of anxious & depressed moments. โฃ
โฃ
I used to think affirmations were silly and swore I didn’t need them. Now, I’m learning just how important they are to myself and my mental well being. โฃ
โฃ
A reminder that a huge component of your health is tied to your mental health. โฃ
โฃ
Most recently, I’ve been exploring a lot more about the foods I’ve been consuming and how they can potentially be linked to anxiety and depression. Things like artificial sweeteners, inflammatory oils, and overall processing of foods. โฃ
โฃ
Because of this, I’ve been working on cleaning up my diet, fixing my hormones, and making changes to support an overall healthy lifestyle. โฃ
โฃ
This is something I quite honestly feel as though I probably should’ve done sooner, but the timing wasn’t right. Just like those silly affirmations I swore I’d never do, I needed to be ready to try, and now the timing is right. โฃ
โฃ
After a huge overhaul to my weight, diet, and fitness this past year, I’m at a place where I want to start educating myself more on what a healthy lifestyle OVERALL will look like for me, and this is the perfect next step. โฃ
โฃ
I’m excited to share the journey along with you, and wanted to give a little update as to what I’ve been focusing on. โฃ
