Diet & fitness are always big resolutions. People get all hyped up & make grand statements about all the drastic changes they’re going to make & how life will never be the same again. Then we feel disappointed if we can’t sustain unrealistic self promises.
People always ask how often I work out and if I eat. I used to be very focused on diet & exercise. In my 30s, I let that go & it changed my life & my body immeasurably. People are too obsessed & noisy about these areas. I exercise rarely & wish I did more. When I do it’s walking or yoga, but I always prioritize sleep over fitness. I eat & drink what I want & crave but I never binge nor become emotional about food. We beat ourselves up & feel “good” or “bad” based on consumption. It’s an unhealthy obsession & achieves the opposite of the desired result. Food is not our best friend nor our enemy. A better relationship with food and fitness is a more realistic resolution to strive for.
That said, sometimes we all need a little reset. I like the DIY version of my own personal reset, which means calming down my digestion with foods that are close to nature and easy to digest, but that don't make me feel like I'm missing out. And I make sure to get some detoxing self-care in as well. I am sharing my own personal approach with you here but hope that you will pick and choose the parts that work best for you, and add in others that make you feel strong and healthy.
