Overcoming emotional eating with community, tools, healing and a positive mindset is doable. This weekend I had cocktails which were not on my meal plan, which I DO NOT regret. Years ago I would have beat myself up over it. But those days over. One indulgence doesn't make or break you.
Today I wanted to "emotionally eat" donuts. Instead I used the tools I learned through personal development to get through it. I'm not saying I'd regret eating it, but I did recognize that I wanted it out of frustration. I knew then I had to switch my thinking, feel what I was feeling, then work through it
If you are an "emo eater" perhaps this can help you too. Instead of "emo eating" I connected with a coach friend, put on some positive affirmations, followed by pumping music, danced, and chose to make my superfoods taste like a donut. If I have time later I will journal. Healthy Living starts with MINDSET. It is NOT "all or nothing". You can have your cake and eat it too from time to time. If you want to make it a lifestyle and you want to make it something forever you have to change your mindset! You can't beat yourself up over the occasional indulgence, but you also can't give in to every trigger. If you change the way you look at things, the way you look at things change. The journey is forever.
Lukewarm is no good. If you want something, go for it, full force ahead! Roald Dahl is one of my favorite childhood authors 📚💜
So thankful for the opportunities I’ve been blessed with in my life and how I’ve been able to reach my goals by going for it and not being lukewarm. This Instagram feed is one of my passions—I am able to meet new friends, share what makes me happy (cooking), and be inspired by all of you. I’m taking this journey full force ahead; can’t be lukewarm about anything that means something to you. This is my 100th post (omg!!!) and there are more than 750 of you (what?!?!). So lucky to have you guys on this journey with me and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us. Thanks for following along thus far on the journey 💜
