Coming at you today with a recap of Detox Your Life week 1, the 22 day healing program that I’m doing!
It’s no secret that I’ve done crazy resets, detoxes, and diet changes before all in the name of trying to heal my body. This is another one of those times, but it’s also different. You can read more about my thoughts, expectations, and musings surrounding this reset here. Today I want to go a bit deeper and explain how it’s been going and how important it is to tailor everything to suit your unique needs.
Hi friends! I am so excited to be sharing this post with you today because I am feeling more inspired around health and food than I have felt in a long time. I’ve really struggled the past few years with food and figuring out the next steps in my journey to heal my stomach issues. […]
Hi friends! I am SO EXCITED to be writing to you today and sharing this post! I want to say that it’s been a long time coming, but honestly I didn’t know that I was going to go in this direction until very recently. It feels so right and I feel like I am stepping […]
Do you ever find yourself turning away from the thing you need at the time you need it the most?
That’s been me with yoga basically this entire year.
I’ve been practicing yoga for about 8 years and up until this year that practice has been consistent. I’m talking at least 30 minutes a day, every. single. day.
I fell off the wagon big time this year and I honestly couldn’t tell you why. I want to do yoga but there is something that makes that want feel less strong than the other things that I prioritize. Which in turn means that I don’t end up doing it.
They say that the pain of the situation has to be greater than the pain of avoidance before change happens, and that is very true.
This is a pretty regular Saturday of eating other other pictures of the day! Darrin and I went thrifting and just hung out around the city today and I snapped some pictures to share that happened throughout the day!
A thought has been stuck in my head all day; who are you when you’re out in the world?
We’re all different people throughout our days. You’re a different person when you’re at work vs. when you’re at home. You’re a different person at a sporting event vs. at a coffee shop. We all have different personalities and qualities about us depending on where we’re at in the world, or even where we’re at in life.
I think that these different versions of ourselves is normal and necessary, to an extent. But a lot of us wear many unnecessary masks to try to show the world who we want to try to be instead of who are actually are.
I think this thought coincides with another thought that I’ve had pop up recently; would our child selves be proud of who we are?
Here’s the thing. I’m an all or nothing person. I’m either all in and completely obsessed or I’m all out and not interested. I struggle to keep myself dedicated to mostly everything that isn’t yoga, meditation, exercising, and journaling. All of my other creative and wellness type focuses come and go.
This isn’t something that I necessarily like about myself because I’m oftentimes bouncing from one thing to the next and not dedicating time to really hone in on a few key things that I can craft and refine.
We start tomorrow!
Well, I do.
Thirty days of blogging.
That’s right, I’m taking it back to 2011 and blogging every single day for the month of September. And holy guacamole am I excited! I think this will really help me to get past my perfectionistic mindset and really put my work out into the world.
I’ve spent a lot of time and energy being paralyzed by the perfectionism and the fear of not putting out “good content.” Which I mean, come on self, that is so totally ridiculous.
Even though I’m stepping away from the food blog life doesn’t mean that I’ll stop talking about food completely. No way!!
It’s been a long while since I’ve shared an update about my health and all things food and I figured that today is a perfect time to share a little bit about how things have been going.
Okay, carrying on!
As I opened up my computer to write today, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to share but it quickly came to me, as I believe things do when you’re committed to showing up for yourself.
Bridging the Gap.
Getting from where I am to where I want to be.
Here’s the thing, by now I know what works for me and what doesn’t.
I know what sets me up for success each day because I’ve done it time and time again for years, until I didn’t.
