Feeling a little suffocated from the comparison trap. Feeling inspired but tired. Feeling anxious and a little overwhelmed. Feeling like I could be doing better. But nevertheless, I’m giving myself permission to be okay with not having everything figured out right away. Whenever you’re feeling like you’re in a rut, It’s about perspective, reflection, and a little bit of chocolate; that’ll do the trick. ...

I’ve been listening to a lot of Abraham Hicks lately on the power of the mind pertaining to the physical body... how the energy that we have around food and the idea of food in our body actually manifests itself as that fear if we let it. And it really resonated with me .
I had an unhealthy relationship with food for a long time. I was terrified of sugar... I used to have 5 packets of Splenda or Sweet and Low a day. I would buy and drink only sugar free items, not even thinking about the chemicals making them that way. If I ate a bunch of “fun foods” one night, I would have to go running and majorly workout the next day or freak out if I didn’t. When the Atkins craze came around, I became terrified of carbs and would best myself up if I consumed too many. I wasn’t realizing what all of this was doing to my body but I also wasn’t realizing what it was doing to my mind... how fear around food was making it react a certain way in my body. .
When I finally Let Go and let myself be about five years ago, the craziest thing happened; many of my stomach issues disappeared... I didn’t have to workout everyday and my joints and back thanked me so much! But the main thing was... when my obsession with perfection and monitoring everything I ate and the thought of how it would effect my weight left me, my bod responded favorably. And it isn’t just me! I have talked to, coached trained many women who have experienced this as well! Then I listened to these Abraham Hicks talks on the energy of our food and it just reaffirmed and further explained what I have learned the last few years. .
If this is something you struggle with and you’d like to talk or you’d like to hear any of those talks from her, Shoot me a DM and I’m happy to chat or send them over. .
