Of this I am certain: something happens every time I stop fighting with the way things are […]
I don’t know what to call this turn of events or the freshness that follows it, but I know what it feels like: it feels like relief.
When it comes to diets, I’ve tried them all – seriously. For the last 20 years, I’ve been on an endless quest to “fix” things. I am so over it.
And, if I’m honest, any dietary tweaks would have been just another attempt to lose pounds I don’t need or want to lose. I am done fighting my body. It grew two beautiful boys and continues to sustain one – that’s good enough for me.
So I live by Michael Pollan’s seven simple words:
eat food. mostly plants. not too much.
Tons and tons of veg. A bit of meat and seafood. A good cappuccino and a piece of dark chocolate each day. Ice cream cones with my kid because it’s summer and we’re making memories. This, to me, is nourishment. 💕
:: Weekly(ish) Update:: The last few weeks were a bit challenging with sick kiddos, hubby’s business trip, etc. I briefly fell off the exercise wagon and quickly realized it is essential to my wellbeing. Essential. There is nothing quite like a hard workout to shake off the sleep deprivation and instantly lift your spirits. Woot! ☺️
Happy sunny Sunday…
