Happy May Day!
What do you change about your eating when you’re on vacation or traveling? Do you ever stop to ask WHY you change stuff?
It’s normal to adjust slightly as you usually don’t have access to all the same foods you have at home, or you may be on a slightly different eating schedule.
This doesn’t mean that you use it as an excuse to say “f it” and go balls out into the foods you’re avoiding or restricting that you didn’t even realize you weren’t allowing yourself. When you’re not restricting or avoiding foods regularly – you don’t have to “be naughty” and eat them when you’re “free” from your normal routine.
Still following me? Okay, so, this goes back to… yup, your thinking.
What do you think when you think about traveling for work or going on vacation? Freedom, escaping…insert your own thoughts here.
I used to plan what I was GOING TO EAT (all the things basically) when I went on vacation.
I used to make excuses why I “had” to eat the muffins at conferences.
Then I would lament that I had gained a bunch of weight!
Round and round I went. My husband used to just shake his head.
Does this sound familiar?
We stand in our own way – we tell ourselves that because of this travel, this work trip, this vacation, this death in the family, all of these circumstances are causing our overeating. Contributing to our inability to lose weight.
It begins and ends WITH YOU.
You always have the choice to eat for your goals.
Whether you’re traveling, whether you’re on vacation, whether you have an off-day, are stuck at home (or at work) during a pandemic, whether you travel for work regularly.
It all comes back to you (wherever you go, there you are, right?).
This is something we love to avoid thinking about (cuz growth ain’t always easy).
If this resonates with you – I want to invite you to schedule a call with me to discuss your goals and where you want to be in your life and how you can make that happen.
You can have the life you want – without restricting, without avoiding all of your favorite foods, without that blame-shame-guilt cycle so many of us know intimately.
You can do this. You deserve to thrive.
