This past week was great. I got inspiration and good tips while talking to my buddy. Our little family took some long walks and I made some yummy recipes that were super healthy. Friday to Sunday we spent at my parents house and between a surplus of food and rainy weather, I’m feeling like I took “two steps back”- blah. Thankfully, this post also feels like a reset. I find that being around family poses a big challenge for me and my goals. Food is a social and celebratory thing in my extended family, and right now I am feeling like spending time with them is a win but then I am losing with my wellness goals. I get to look at how to create the win win here. I am going to idea storm with Garrick and see if there is a mechanism we can put into place that allows for more moving our bodies and less eating during these family gatherings. I get to look at ways to incorporate healthy foods into our gatherings too.
Looking forward to connecting with my small group tomorrow night. I’m feeling super sleepy, so going to keep it short. Sending sweet dreams to all of you.
