It doesn’t seem like a normal holiday week (although what has felt normal this year? lol).
What the holidays USED to look like for me …
One thing that still rings true for me every holiday season is reflecting on the anxiety I used to have this time of year.
I would spend countless hours trying to figure out what to do with my nutrition …
How am I going to track?
How much do I need to restrict myself?
What if someone asks why I’m not eating?
What if someone asks why I’m not drinking?
Should I fast all day?
Should I fast the next day?
Should I add extra cardio this week?
These questions would circulate in my head and would literally keep me up at night.
During our interview with Julie yesterday, she mentioned something that resonated deeply with me …
She said that she knew she had a problem when she was missing out on moments.
Driving to her family with a cooler packed and a food scale so she could weigh and track everything precisely.
And ultimately, she didn’t want to live that way.
She didn’t want to be controlled by food.
Man, that hit home.
Food controlled me for way too long.
My decisions, my mood, my emotions, my actions.
My ability to be present and enjoy life.
All of it was impacted by food.
The holidays were always especially challenging.
It IS possible to have dietary freedom
Now, I can appreciate the dietary freedom I have and be grateful for my ability to fully be present in each moment.
I’m grateful that I don’t have to think twice or stress about what I’m going to eat, how I’m going to track, or if I will be sabotaging my results.
I’m also grateful that we are able to gift that same level of food freedom to our clients, like Julie, who said that she’s never had a better relationship with food in her entire life than right now.
And yes, there’s a reason why I decided to host a workshop called Fat Loss Freedom right in the middle of the holiday season.
It’s because too many people will struggle and obsess and ultimately … will reach their breaking point.
And, after that breaking point, they’ll join an extreme program in January and begin the vicious cycle anew.
I’ll be damned if I’m going to idly sit by and watch it unfold without doing everything in my power to change that outcome for as many people as possible.
You have one week to make a decision for a new path and a better result.
The decision boils down to this … is it worth $47 to remove the food stress from your life and actually support your body in the way it deserves?
Is it worth $47 to stop searching for quick fixes and finally get on the path to your lifelong solution?
It is worth $47 to fully enjoy the holidays and be present for each moment while knowing you can still make progress and not have to “start over” in January?
Is it worth it? Only you can answer that.
