The diet starts on Monday, by Friday night (if you make it that long) you are eating all the ice cream in sight, am I right? 🍦
Listen up loves. I feel you. 💛
I was so used to living in a state of chaos, fear, control, and anxiety. My desire was to eat intuitively but here’s where the problem was….
My core belief didn’t match the behavior that I desired (intuitive eating). My deeply rooted belief was that if I stopped counting macros I wouldn’t have the will power which meant that I would eat all the food in sight, and then look horrible for the rest of my life. Macros were a safety blanket for me.
This kept me in a cycle of self-sabotage again and again and again.
Well, I tried intuitive eating but it’s just not working for me.
It’s not that it’s not working, it’s that there was a total misalignment going on in my system so just as I went to try this new thing a.k.a intuitive eating, my body went AHHHHH what are you doing, you’ve been tracking macros for a long time now we don’t know anything else! 🤯
It all goes back to conditioning and all the patterns we have created overtime in our system. If you have been dieting for 5,10,20 etc. years, of course your system is going to feel shocked. Dieting is all that it knows.
So…..how can we break the pattern?
🦋 Be Patient and have Presence: Like I said, this takes time and the more time you’ve been doing the destructive behavior the more conditioning there is around it. Breathwork/meditation is a great tool here.
🦋 Set your intention: Mine was intuitive eating and getting to a space where I could freely nourish my body with zero restrictions.
🦋 Stay committed: Showing up even when it was hard. The hard is where the growth happened.
🦋 Being aware as change happens: Be aware of those micro wins. I remember one of my micro wins was going a few days without counting macros. Another was waking up and asking my body what it wanted versus shoving oatmeal and almond butter down first thing in the morning because that’s what I used to always do (aka autopilot mode 24/7).
