I can’t be the only one sick of being paranoid about what to eat and what exercise to do and what supplements to take to obtain optimal health. I mean, come on, it’s exhausting to try to follow all the guidelines and requirements and rules and in the end I personally end up so stressed about it all that eating and living becomes a chore rather than a joy.
For awhile I’ve been trying to start a certain diet that’s popular now but more than once I’ve ended up in tears because buying all the food needed to make this health repairing, weight losing super diet a success requires a grocery budget three times what I have.
So today I gave up. Not on changing my lifestyle but on trying to follow everyone’s rules. I’m so done with doing this exercise or that exercise because someone said it was better, or more faith sustaining or less faith sustaining l, or cutting the food or that food out because someone said it would improve my health or ruin it or I don’t even know anymore.
I know that for me to feel better I have to cut out the wheat, grains, dairy and sugar (and I’ve done all of this except for breaking the sugar addiction) but when “they” start telling me that there are certain veggies or fruit I can’t eat either, well, they can just Ketoing ... Er... keep on keeping on in their own path and stay out of mine.
It’s definitely a challenge to find what works for our own bodies, since every body (pun intended) is different but I think once we find it then we need to shut the voices of everyone else off and keep on our own path, whatever that is. For me I need to remind myself daily that this mindset goes for food, for exercise, and for art. Let’s help remind each other, okay?
Today, the ladies of Crafternoon gathered to try our hand at paint pouring. YouTube makes it look so easy! It was not easy! But it sure was a lot of fun. We ended up with some pretty neat, unexpected art! The paint definitely had a mind of it's own. #acreativedc#thebmorecreatives#sundayfunday
