Labor Day, a day of honoring the “American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country,” is a BIG BBQ day. (According to Wikipedia 😉)
Big BBQ days often lead to BIG cheat days. BUT…they don’t have to! Here are a few ways to clean up some ol’ standbys!
Deviled Eggs! Who needs mayo? Bleck!
Layered Salads?! Here you go!
Grain-free Brownies? No problem!
What are you going to make today and share with family and friends?
Something changed in my body earlier this year.
Was a 34-year-old switch that flipped on my metabolism?
Was is that after three years, my girls reduced their nursing sessions tremendously?
Was it that perhaps I have found more balance in my fitness/nutrition life and life life?
Was it my cycle coming back after a looooooong time and my hormones going crazy? 😱
I don’t really know. Likely a combo of them all.
What I do know is that (seemingly) suddenly it is a lot harder for me to maintain fitting pants (and shirts, really) than it used to be. 😂
Perhaps I should just go shopping for different pants and shirts. Skirt anyone? 😁
Perhaps one day, my hormones will even out and things will go back to my “normal”.
But in the meantime, I’m feeling this sooooooo deeply. I have made it no secret that I have struggled with body image and self confidence most of my life.
I’d be lying now if I said it was completely sorted out, but it is true that I am so much closer to where I want to be with it all. For that, I am happy.
And I truly have my workouts, my desire to learn about my body and my food, and my amazing community of support to thank for that. I am not the same woman I was before Beachbody Coaching. I am so much stronger, healthier and happier.
✨✨Dear body, I love you. I am grateful for you. And I want to be your friend. 😊✨✨
