It’s been a wee while since i posted 🙂 I’ve been on holiday to Australia, had horrible jet lag and then was ill. In a way I’m pleased that I was so ill as it’s kicked started me back into focusing on my health and happiness.
I’m two weeks in and I’m feeling BLOODY BRILLIANT. How ?
- working on my mindset
- Eating well
- Cutting out the cap
- getting outside
- Having fun and not taking life/myself so seriously!!
None of the above is new information to you and I right? Lack of information isn’t the issue in our world of Google…….but implementation is.
So what stops us doing the things that make us feel better?
fear? mindset? limiting self belief? Probably all of those and more 🙂
We feel stuck, we repeat patterns and feel like we go around in circles……all the time adding fuel to the ‘see i told you you couldn’t do it’ fire.
This is where asking for help comes in (hello feeling ‘less than’ and vulnerable). Maybe a friend, coach, mentor, therapist, expert or similar?
Oh this bit has turned into a mindset/head kind of post….i digress…
The last couple of weeks have not been perfect. I’m defo not ‘on a detox’ or regimented plan.
I’m being curious and listening to my body and I got advice….from a professional.
Even though I’m qualified to and help women who are feeling poop I cannot self treat as i cannot be objective (what do you mean hobnobs aren’t included?)
My way clearly wasn’t working…..i was tired, grumpy and my mojo had disappeared 🙁
I’ve pushed against resistance, I’ve sulked, practically stomped my feet but I’ve been kind to myself.
I’ve not been perfect or stuck to it 100%……i’ve been flexible and it’s like my body and brain have let out a huge sigh of relief.
To be honest I was paralysed by the thought of change……I LOVE my tea and toast but it wasn’t helping me feel better. (tea and toast will be back occasionally when my gut is happier)
The thought of eating differently to my friends and family seemed like too much effort.
The thought of having to spend ‘hours’ shopping, preparing and cooking felt like too much.
The thought of having to log foods and watch what I was eating seemed like a huge faff.
The reality is that it’s been pretty straight forward. I’ve had to plan and put in a bit of effort in but the pay off has been worth it 🙂
I’ve not even missed a coffee!
My energy has returned and so has my cooking mojo (i’m redesigning and recipe testing my two old recipe books)
My MOOD is marvellous…..i feel happy and positive. My symptoms are reducing and I’m sleeping better.
I am experiencing the power of healthy food, good supplements and a new mindset.
I wish I could some how magically let you feel how it feels to feel BLOODY BRILLIANT.
You have the power to feel happy, well and loving life at your finger tips…..
So my take home message is if you are paralysed by the thought of change but really want it…..do it any way because the reality isn’t usually as bad as our imagination tells us its going to be.
Start with one little habit change and let momentum turn that change into another change…
