More wellness . . . less confusion
This might sound crazy coming from a certified Health Coach, but there is too much information out there regarding diet, exercise, fitness, healthy living, etc. Way too much information for any one person to take in, sort through, and come to a conclusion — unless you have nothing else to do all day.
In the end, the information overload and information wars just caused me a lot of confusion. So for this depth year I am pitching it all aside. No more reading the latest study, no more buying the latest videos, no more bringing home the latest fitness gadget.
No more!. I am committing to paying attention to how what I eat makes me feel. I commit to listening to my own body about how movement feels. I commit to being gentle with myself about my auto-immune disease and the effects of it.
I started the New Year with a Whole 30. I followed it like it was a bible command for the 30 days. No grains, no sugars, no dairy, no legumes, no alcohol, no scale, NO CHEATING. Was it easy? Heck no! It was one temptation after another. It was one small quiet moment of saying no after another. But, at the end, I felt so much better.
Being honest, this was kind of the opposite of what I wanted. You see I want to be a vegan. I really do. I don’t like the whole meat industry and slaughtering industry. But, and this is the key and the thing I really had to learn for myself, MY body is not built to digest and process carb very well. So I committed to buying the very best meat I can. I stick mostly with fish, chicken, and turkey. Although once a week I make a roast and enjoy it with my family.
