This photo was taken around this time last year at Cocktail Bar with one of my closest friends and work wife. We drank amazing cocktails 🍹🍸. I was happy (I fail at making duck faces.) My spirit felt light. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏ β€’

I created The Diet Antidote to help you to find joy in eating, figure out how to stop dieting, and to guide you through the challenges along the way. πŸ«πŸπŸ°πŸ£πŸ‡πŸπŸ‰πŸ•πŸ”Forget what's healthy or unhealthy. Forget whether you're eating "clean" (another word for diet.) What do YOU want? Restriction and deprivation almost ALWAYS lead to bingeing due to our PHYSIOLOGY and not because we are failures or lack "willpower" or suck at dieting. Diets suck. Calorie counting sucks. Obsessing over our appearance and exercise routine and leanness at the expense of our goals, dreams, career, time spent with children, friendships, relationships...that sucks. And it's not healthy. β€’

I'm guiding 10 of you through this 5-week, 1:1 service at a discounted price, but act fast! Spots are filling up. I would love to help you with the first steps to finding peace with food and with yourself using the principles of intuitive eating. It IS possible to heal your relationship with food, stop fighting your body, and to show up for your life. Link in profile @sarahbnutrition

I'm really enjoying making my own chocolate. I'm not usually much for sweets (love the savoury πŸ’πŸ»), but I appreciate awesome chocolate from time to time and this recipe fits the bill. I prefer mine with more cacao butter than is often used -- much creamier and smoother -- and choosing my own additions, like frozen blueberries and peanut butter. So simple and quick to make (15 minutes!) and so damn delicious. Best served on wine nights with friends and great conversations πŸ’•

You can't control how you feel or what you want, but you CAN decide what you do with those desires. It's pretty damn hard in our culture to say, "I don't care about your anti-feminist aesthetic ideals! My body is perfect!" πŸ’πŸ»and to announce it with conviction as you meet yourself in the mirror every morning. β€’

Sometimes old thoughts encroach and I let them in. Thoughts about weight, thoughts about a "fit physique". But I don't give them a whole lot of airplay. I know what my body is capable of, but I also spend a lot of time asking myself what I want this time on earth to be about. β€’

Which will make me happier and more satisfied: pursuing "hotness" as my body shifts and changes, or feeling good? Do I cower in fear of failure, or do I rise to the occasion with the best -- my best -- I have to offer? β€’

In retrospect, I understand how afraid I was of being myself -- that I used diets and restrictive eating to avoid facing my fears as a writer. THAT is where I go now. I don't act on these thoughts the way I have in the past. I meet those fears with love. I take action in my life. I acknowledge the presence of those thoughts and tell them, "Not now. I'm going to set you up with a room of your own and you're welcome to stay, but I've got plans so I'm going to head out." β€’

You can't put your dress size or your six pack on a resume, but you can collect experiences and narratives that become your life's work. How do you meet your fears? What do you do when those thoughts come up?

"My favourite thing is to have a big dinner with friends and talk about life." -Carla Gugino. Some speculate intuitive eating will lead you astray into the wild, Wild West of uncontrollable urges and overeating and endless pizza boxes and pints of ice cream, but in my experience, it leads you home.

Present over perfect, balanced over clean. Variations of the same thing. You deserve to show up for your life.

Why should I stop dieting? Aren't I giving up if I quit giving a shit about my appearance and my weight? Intuitive eating isn't easy. Body love is an ongoing challenge. If you don't feel like you've got it all figured out, trust me when I say we are ALL working on it, winging it, doing our best. The jabs, triggers, setbacks, bullshit, challenges, upsets...THESE are your becoming. These lessons will blaze the trail. .

Going against the grain should hurt a little. It should sting. Why? Because we're talking about counter culture and that causes friction. It shouldn't feel easy and it won't always flow. But that's how you grow. For every thing that falls into your lap, you'll have to fight for another opportunity or chance that doesn't. That's how you come into your own. Not by trying to be like someone else. Trying to look like someone else. But by doing THE WORK, being unapologetically you, and letting the wolves howl. .
.
What do you get from this? Freedom. Sanity. Peace. Happiness. Diamonds are pulled from the mines, yo. So if you're feeling shitty, try to show yourself some compassion, accept that great things come from breaking down and being broken. They take time and perseverance. Be patient with the hot mess of process. It's okay to wonder and to worry, but also know these are signs of progress. This is you, igniting light in the tunnel. Don't worry about the ashes. Focus on keeping the flame alive against the turbulent wind and thunderstorms. Focus on the spark that says, stay the course.

My kind of #miraclemorning. Also loving @mskelseymiller's "Big Girl: How I Gave Up Dieting & Got A Life."
