Christmas was nice. Time with my Jr. Family member and a Christmas eve performance at church. Opening gifts, talking with friends in the Mid-west, coffee at Starbucks.
Christmas Beach walk, photo bombing lifeguards. I'm a mid-west transplant. After spending 28 years looking at corn and soybean fields, I love the ocean, tide pools, and the West. I embrace that. I've done my time in the cold. ;)
I took an awesome beach walk and did some tide pooling in a new area. Awesomeness. I'll never tire of the stuff I can see in the tide pools. I'll post more photos later.
- Paleo/Primal food (no grains & dairy) and activity (outdoors, lift heavy things) template .
- Weighing daily
- Keeping a work life balance.
- Time with the family.
- Clear mind to deal with emotions that popped up. Mind is clear because of 1-4.
What surprised me. Ghosts of Christmas past- I must have done a lot of emotional eating Christmas Eve in years past. I my mind kept telling me to eat sweets!!! Especially Christmas eve while stuffing stockings & wrapping gifts. I must have numbed myself so much in the past.
The clarity and peace of mind is worth all the hard work of maintenance. Good to live life. Best Christmas gift, ever!!!
What hasn't worked in the past
1. Eating cookies and candy
1.5 Baking cookies for "others". So wrong!! (my next blog post)
2. Trying to out exercise the cookies and candy
3. Starting over Jan 1
4. Numbing up with food.
I invite you to step away from the trigger foods and any foods that make you numb up. Start today. Don't wait until Jan 1.
