Last Day Of Vacation

Last Day Of Vacation


So today was the last day of my little stay-cation and honestly I learned two things 1) Stay-cations are severely underrated and 2) If I’m home I eat more.

It was so great to be able to get out and about in the warm weather and sun instead of work, work, work.

Originally we had planned to travel for our vacation but since we’re working on those financial goals we decided it was better not to go.

It was great to be able to spend time together revamp, catch up on sleep and explore the place we live! So much happens around us that we barely notice because we’re too “busy”.

Sometimes you just need a breather to catch up with life!

I’m quite excited to go back to work re-energized instead of depleted which a road trip can do to you.

The newest thing I learned about my unhealthy eating is I mindless eat! It’s just this bad habit I never realized. I guess it could also be considered “boredom eating” but I swear there were sometimes I was just grabbing for food realizing oh wait I don’t actually want or need this!

Oh the stay-cation vibes ♥️♥️

my love

First time at the Renaissance festival!

Kitten love!

Also beyond grateful to live in this gorgeous area where stay-cations are beyond worth it!

I encourage everyone to seek out beauty where ever you are!




Hi hi!

So I realized today for the first time in all of my 27 years of life that I am an emotional eater. (shocker literally almost everyone in America is, welcome to the club!)

I always knew my relationship with food was atrocious I mean let’s be honest being diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 26 kind of means you’ve had more than a few unpleasant run ins with food.

Today however I realized that even though my whole life I’ve despised weight watcher groups where they give you stickers for being able to throw out ice cream without dumpster diving for food later (true story), those groups could have helped me a lot more if I had been honest with myself.

Now to understand that you kind of have to know that I have separate mind sets;

losing weight mindset- extra restrictive, try to eat as little as possible and make yourself feel awful for having cravings.

normal mindset-eat to celebrate (you deserve it), eat when feeling bad for yourself (you’ll feel better after eating this reeses, or you’re gross already might as well mindlessly eat a bag of chips until your sick)

As you can see I’m very messed up, I own it!

Now! in order to lose weight and be healthy I need a new mindset!

Easier said than done but my hope is that if I make small steps in the right direction then hopefully the toxic relationship with food will change.

I’ve been working on self love for some time now and you’ll be very excited to hear that I can finally wear short sleeves in 90 degree weather! I know I know hold the applause. And honestly to someone that’s never hated their arms that sentence is completely mind boggling but I know my friends that have battles with their meat sticks (shout out to Louise Pentland) will completely understand.

So with all of that being said I hope to set body positivity goals, happy thought goals,overall positive well being goals as well as weight loss goals through this process.

Tomorrow the #fitgirlsguide challenge begins and I couldn’t think of a better time to start! I will have updates (positive and negative) along the way. Should get interesting. (fingers crossed).
