Here we are, it’s Memorial Day weekend…
The sayonara spring salute to summer weekend full of picnics, parties and the inevitable Panic and Pain that for so many years of my life underpinned the entire fiasco.
And when I say underpinned I mean, wake up every morning starting about the Monday before with thoughts like…
Should I have a bun with my first grilled hot dog of the year…
Or if I’m going to have the newest summer ale maybe I will abstain from food and just have a couple beers…then immediately (if I’m being honest) realize that after a couple beers I’m not gonna give a shit about having a bun.
Holy crap!! Reliving this conundrum to write this is causing me real pain and suffering, hopefully you get the point.
WTF do we do to ourselves?
I mean really, as you know I’ve spent more than half of my life battling with Food and my Body and even though I managed to shrink into the size that I am today more than 20 years ago, the struggle is real.
It’s not enough to understand that fresh veggies, fruits, and non processed foods are “healthy”, I highly doubt we are still ignorant of that at this point in the game.
If logic and the scientific calculations of calories in and calories out, or removing/adding any specific macros to our DIETS actually worked then we would not be in this situation because we are nothing if not intelligent.
Do you feel me?
Is this familiar to you in any way?
Have you felt the pain, panic and later the punishment for picnics and parties?
If you have been in my shoes, I believe I have some really good advice for you….are you ready for this top secret, life altering single statement
IT”S NOT ABOUT THE FOOD!
This simple statement is the reason why I can now say I love Picnics, Panic, and Pain because that is how I learned to embrace what is really behind nurturing, and loving my body from an emotional perspective allowing myself to feel all the feels, good, bad, and indifferent.
No more deprivation, avoiding and then punishing!
Instead I lean into the pain and and turn up the senses while feeding them with love, compassion and acknowledgment which in turn frees me to open up to the wisdom of my body while appreciating yet quieting the LOUD, bossy mind this is the way out of the struggle.
What is your number one struggle at this moment, how can I support you?
Reach out to me directly and let’s talk it through….
All my love,
