Becoming My Best Self

June 5, 2018

As you may or may not yet know, I am a fairly particular person.

I prefer Starbucks coffee. I need a 5 blade razor. I love polo button down shirts. I will never go back to a non apple product for a computer.

I am really conscious of what I put on my skin. Safe, natural, clean beauty products and sun safety.

I am really conscious of what I put in my body. When I am on my A game, I can Primal Blueprint Diet with the rest of them.

One thing I am really not good at? What I do for my body. Let me put it frankly: I hate working out with the passion of 1000 suns. I find it absolutely dreadful. If I am running, you better run too, because something is chasing me!

So… I am embarking on a revamp of my relationship with food, and the way I treat my body.

So many times I have tried to “hack” my body with quick, intense workouts meant to give extreme results. I always give up, more dejected than the time before because I just can’t seem to stick it out. I also have a hard time with diets that give you portion control or sever limits- I am not trying to lose weight, just treat my body better, and feed it better things than chicken nuggets okay?!

Enter The 2b Mindset. Listen. I have tried other Beachbody Workouts (^^^ahem) and I have not been able to get myself to full capacity doing these programs. My sister does CrossFit and is awesome and says then can scale it… but I hate working out remember?

The 2b Mindset seems to be all about changing ones relationship with food and the way it affects once’s body, with emphasis on eating foods that are better for you, and no guilt for that Cadbury Milk Chocolate Caramel straight from England (I’m looking at you babysitting house!).

I am posting this here because I want to hold myself accountable. I want to eat better, and try to get some kind of allotted and specific physical activity in at least 3 days a week- even if they aren’t those body hack workouts that will get me a six pack in time for my cruise =p .

For the next few months (and hopefully forever after that!) I will be spending time to really examine how I treat my body, and how I can treat it better.

How do you do these things? How do you make time for self care? Personal Development? Honestly, give me all the secrets because I really need them here 😉

    Getting myself to the gym regularly has been the biggest hurtle for me to date. In college, I had dance classes & physical exercise built into my schedule – so once I graduated, I noticed my body was no longer feeling its best. I ended up taking barre classes simply because it reminded me of how happy dance class made me in college. People will tell you a million things to get you to do what works for THEM: but can I just be one person who tells you something different? Do what makes YOUR body happy. Heck, do what makes your MIND happy. Health cannot be chopped up into different chunks – food, exercise, mental health…it’s all related. Personally, I find that my best days are the days that I go to the gym. I’m more clear headed and end up having a more productive day once I’ve sweat out the tension & anxiety that I naturally wake up with. For others, yoga at the end of the day does the trick. Or maybe it’s drinking 10 glasses of water a day. Or maybe health means that you DO go for that second slice of pizza one time just because it makes you happy to do so. Take note of what made your good days great and just keep doing that 🙂

    Thank you! That all sounds amazing 🙂 I have been wanting to try barre classes (but again, that pesky time thing!). Maybe I will just go sign up for one and see what it’s like!
