The overabundance of food and eating may be leaving you a little mind-muddled and lethargic NOT to mention a little bloated.
Don’t stress over this. It is what it is.
It is not the time to feel guilt. I know it is easy to do. Easy to review exactly what you ate and how much and then condemning yourself because you feel it may have been too much.
I get it. I understand. But this self-sabotage will not move you forward AND it will not make this feeling go away…it only cements it in so that you do it again next year.
Let’s break the cycle.
Here are 7 things you can do THIS WEEK to turn this feeling around and feel more like the Y-O-U, you love!
#1 Right NOW clear your mind and BREATHE. Breathe deep. Be present-filled. There is no moment better than the one you are in. Take this action several times a day to keep your feet firmly planted and breath flowing through your body.
#2 Clear your diet of the top allergen foods: grains, nuts, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, shellfish for at least 7-10 days. Please note: If you choose to join us and begin the E.N.D. your Struggle program December 1st…then you will do this until December 23rd.
#3 Clear your diet of food additives: HFCS is #1, processed wheat and white flour foods, msg, excess salt (iodized), excess caffeine, saturated fats and sugars. Replace these with nourishing foods of fruit, fresh veggies, veggie/protein smoothies and seeds.
#4 Get out and move: The great outdoors is simply that … GREAT! Fresh air, moving the body, increasing the heart rate and lung capacity is a perfect tool to have you feeling fabulous! I recommend 30-60 minutes 3-4 times a week. More if you like 😊
#5 SLEEP – you must get your sleep. Enough sleep keeps you from grazing and snacking thru out the day on sugars, saturated fats and caffeine. Go to bed BEFORE 10:00 pm. The more sleep you get before midnight the greater energy you have the next morning.
#6 BE prepared with travel food. The holiday time is the perfect time for food sabotage. So, plan to carry a travel pack filled with nourishing foods.
#7 Wake up EACH and EVERY morning with a WAHOO! If Thanksgiving eating got you down …. then waking up each day with a fresh mindset is KEY! While still abed…open your eyes, raise your arms to the sky and say “Thank YOU! I am so happy to BE here!” Then continue with your gratitude list. A thankful heart first thing in the morning changes the entire feel and energy of your day.
