Welcome to June….
Things I am looking forward to this month:
Natural Vitamin D
Appointment with new natural Doctor ( have been waiting almost two months to see her)
Walks with Lola
Local fresh fruits and veggies
Trips to the lake
Blogging more – going to do a few about my appointments with the natural doctor 🙂 We will be checking my thyroid and hormones.
I’m sure there is more but this is a good start 😀
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past month in terms of weight loss, exercise, spirituality, emotionally, mentally and all that fun stuff that I think is so important when it comes to a balanced, healthy weight loss journey. You might be dissapointed when you read what I’m about to say…. I didn’t weigh myself in or for May.
I was starting to feel that doom and gloom feeling when I weighed in April and found that I had not lost any weight and truth be told I didn’t like that feeling. I don’t think it’s healthy to feel down about lack of results. I don’t think it’s a good use of time to constantly analyze your body in the mirror. It doesn’t put me in a healthy mind frame and sometimes I have to distance myself from those things. If you are the kind of person that thrives on the results and likes to know a number…well…not to worry. I will have to record my weight for my doctors appointment on the 12th and so I will give you that update sometime this month!
Overall May was a very good month for me in terms of healthy and intuitive eating. I ate a variety of fruits (which didn’t seem to bother my skin or contribute to any flairups) vegetables, did some homemade baking and kept things simple. The best way to be. I spent a good amount of time outside as well. When I am eating naturally and staying away from processed food and spending lots of quality time in nature my emotional health seems right on track and my headspace is very clear and balanced.
The following are just some photos from May.
In terms of exercise… I got out for a long walk (45 minutes to an hour) at least 5 days per week and I also continued with Zumba!
As I mentioned above I’ve been reading a few pages of life changing foods by @medicalmedium each day and learning lots. A few days ago I came to the melons section and this jumped out of the page to me.
I’m tired of being a witness to so much burn out and struggle. I’ve been there and still deal with the physical affects of stress and too much pushing leading to burn out in the body. You don’t have to kill yourself every day in the gym for results. You don’t have to beat yourself up over an indulgence. Your body isn’t attacking itself. Stop and breathe. Slow down. Go for a walk. Be present. Healing can take place even when we are still. Weight loss can occur when we are gentle with ourselves. Change and growth can happen without self imposed challenges and restrictions we enforce on our lives. Stop weighing yourself every day. Stop analyzing your results in the mirror. Be at peace.
I will leave you all with that!
