How To Get Back On Track

Vacations.  They're so lovely while they're happening aren't they? You get to indulge in all of the treats...sleep in....stay up late....

But when they END and you're stuck feeling tired, unmotivated and bloated it can be really tough to get back on track!

In this week's Blog we're talking about how to 'snap out of' vacation mode and snap into whatever it is you want real life to feel like.

No Explanation Needed

I was at dinner last night (we're on a little mid week mini vacay) and there was a breadbasket at dinner.  Now I'm not super strict with what I do/don't eat on vacation, but bread just doesn't do it for me anymore.  I'd much rather have an extra glass of wine and dessert....ya know?

So anyway, when the waiter came back, he commented on the fact that I wasn't having any, and I found myself APOLOGIZING and trying to explain myself.

Do you ever do that?  Apologize for your food choices?  Like it should matter to anyone else?  Like you need to justify what you choose to eat and not eat?

The Scale

This is a big one, you guys.

Over the past month I've been noticing a trend, and it has to do with weight loss & the scale.  I talk a lot about it being ok to want to lose weight, to feel more confidant and sexy when we get dressed in the morning, and I still whole heartedly believe that, but I've been saying it wrong.  I've been saying weight loss, and I think that's been misleading for you (and for me).

Detoxing. Is It Helpful Or A Useless Fad?

So, how do we interrupt this behaviour, feel better in between those food-centric Holidays, but still enjoy them?  One solution out there is detoxing.  I think yesterday alone I got 3 email invitations to buy  detoxes/cleanses and have them shipped to my door free.

A few years back I probably would have ordered two of them.  See, I LOOOOOVED me the quick fixes back then.  I would throw money at a juice cleanse thinking THAT was going to solve my problems (and not changing the habits that I had on the daily).  Fast forward, and I can now tell you a thing or two about detoxes.
