This has been an interesting time for me. I’ve had days where I’m eating whole foods and days where I am not.
Do you ever feel like you are climbing a mountain but you never seem to reach the top! And every now and then you slide down and have to start again.
Well that is what my journey is like. On the days that I’m eating healthy I’m climbing, on the day’s I’m not I’m sliding down that mountain.
And that’s ok, that is what life is all about. I’ve just starting reading the 3rd book in the Whole30 series, Food Freedom Forever.
Here is an extract from the book:
Part of the Food Freedom plan includes you falling off the wagon, because you will, and I want to prepare you for that. What you are embarking upon is a constant cycle of progression, but it’s not linear. You’ll do well, then stumble. You’ll be in control, then fall back into old habits. You’ll have weeks of effortless balance, followed by (surprise!) a week of Carb-a-Palooza.
This is all totally okay.
This is exactly what is happening with me. I do well for a few days and fall off the wagon. It’s like the mountain climb and then sliding down again. So after starting to read this book I’m actually feeling so much better about how I’m doing. (I haven’t finished the book, I’ve only just started it)
One thing I have discovered since starting the Whole30 is that I’m now more aware of how food is affecting my body, whereas before I just ignored it and wasn’t interested in listening. I was enjoying the food too much, but now I’m listening. The trick is to take action and not have the foods that do effect me, which is a challenge, but I think feeling good after eating food is so much better for us.
I’m a big believer in that mindset is the key to everything. It’s all part of the Law of Attraction – “What you think about, you bring about”. So I’m working on changing how I think about a lot of things, and that includes food and eating. Each day it gets easier and better!
One day I will reach the top of that mountain, but in the meantime I’m just going to enjoy that climb.
