It’s Wind Down Wednesday, why sugar coat anything! Featuring some real talk with Liz (aka me)!
Alright, full disclosure, I don’t drink beer! I’ve tried and tried, but I just can’t get into it. Thus, this shot is staged, but I promise you that’s the only thing that isn’t true to form with this session of “real talk with Liz”!
Honestly, I was not going to post today. But, the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I was letting you down. Mind you, I know there’s probably only a handful of you who read this on a routine basis; but still, the few that do, you mean the world to me! Thus, I’ve decided to share with you some recent things on my mind. And, since I’m being honest, I don’t have a glass of wine in my hand, but just finished a chocolate almond milk shake :).
I’ve been struggling lately with finding my place. Self employment definitely has its highs and lows, and right now, I’m trying to find an even wave to ride in this sea. I’ve shared with you how I spend my days, but really, it’s not so organized as I make it seem. I have found through dealing with my emotions and stress of infertility, I have gotten in some unhealthy habits. I’m not proud of them, nor am I enthused to share them with you. However, as a vow to get better, here they are.
Real talk with Liz: Unhealthy Habits I Vow To Change
- Eating while standing in the kitchen.
- Can I say endless grazing?
- Snacking while at the computer, on my phone, or watching TV.
- What happened to mindful eating?
- Missing my AM workout routine.
- I feel 100% better when I get up and get at it, why do I convince myself morning Facebooking and coffee is more important?
- Sitting for WAY to long.
- I live in San Diego, why I don’t visit the beach more often I will never understand. Until now! Rollerblades are being taken out of retirement, watch out Mission Bay, here I come!
- Negative self talk.
- Hands down, Mr. CEO will tell you this is what he prefer I work on the most. They say you are the harshest critic on yourself, but I know sometimes I’m down right mean. What’s worse is that I would never say the things I say to myself to any other human being, even my worst enemy. If I’m supposed to be my biggest advocate, I better reframe my thinking and practice that self love.
I could list a few more, but I’ll spare you and end it here. What I will say is that tomorrow, April 20th, marks a new chapter in this journey. I will no longer let my emotions rule my habits. I know I have that inner drive, that passion that keeps me up (and holds me accountable) to do what I say I will do. After all, it’s nearly midnight and I’m up writing this because I couldn’t let you down!
Here’s to new beginnings, and letting your true self free!
