My Body Has Changed

My Body Has Changed

A week before my beach vacation, I found myself judging my body.  As my life and priorities change, so does my body - and I am learning how to be okay with that.  My body used to be stronger and more in shape when my schedule was lighter and even more so when I restricted food.  While I was going through this judgement cycle, a friend reached out to me to discuss the same exact issue.  She was also preparing for a beach vacation and did not feel good about her body.  We exchanged things we were struggling with and both agreed that we were being too hard on ourselves.

Recently, I was reminded of how much pressure I used to put on myself about weight.  I pressured myself to keep my weight under a certain number and celebrated when I was able to get there.  When I was at the doctor's office last week for a regular check-up, they had to record my weight.  Even though I do not weigh myself, I knew the general range of what was going to pop up on the scale.  When the number popped up, it was higher than that number I was talking about earlier - but I did not feel bad about it.  I felt good.

This Weekend's Win

This past weekend, I did a photoshoot for my business.  I needed a major picture upgrade and I finally got around to booking a great photographer.  I am super excited to get my pictures and share some more food freedom and body love with you all!

You know what felt really good about doing this photoshoot - the fact that I never stressed about dieting or working out.  In fact, I had ice cream both Thursday night and Friday night (my shoot was Saturday morning).  In the weeks/days leading up to my shoot, I didn't restrict myself from eating what I wanted and I didn't over exhaust myself at the gym in order to lose some inches.

Hey there!  I hope your weekend was fabulous and the start to your week has been positive.  This weekend was so great - I spent quality time alone during the day on Saturday and enjoyed a long walk on Sunday.  I love having weekends that leave me feeling recharged and ready to take on a new week!  

My me-time included a day of shopping (YES).  I am not a huge shopper but this weekend, I was in the mood to buy all the things.  While enjoying my me-time at the mall, I was reminded of how much I used to hate on my body.
