The solution isn’t looking at what your insta BFF is doing with her diet, exercise & life.
And it’s not “eat XYZ, follow these macros, burn this many cals per day”.
Those are all external, and you don’t want to rely on others telling you what & how to eat, right? RIGHT!🙌Follow these steps to accomplish this…
NOTICE those thought patterns that made you filled with self-doubt & mistrust of your body/self. (i.e. cultivate self-awareness).
DETACH from those thoughts & emotions. Become the conscious observer. If you can witness them, you’re not them, right?
UNCOVER where these thoughts & emotions came from. These often stem from limiting beliefs & we want to go there!
REWRITE those beliefs for yourself. Just as you decided to identify with those limiting beliefs, you can choose to identify with new ones.
What does this look like in practice?
Let’s say you struggle with trusting yourself around certain foods, and this leads to bingeing, all-or-nothing, or black & white interactions with said foods.
✨NOTICE: “This is a ‘bad’ food, I screwed up, I knew I couldn’t just have one, now my whole day is ruined, I’ll make up for it tomorrow.” Sound familiar?
⚡️ DETACH: “Huh, I tend to see those thoughts a lot! That’s some old programming coming up, but that’s not who I am. They’re just thoughts & emotions.”
🌙 UNCOVER: “Where did those come from? A diet guru? My mom? Watching others as a child? Some rando telling me my eating habits are problematic? Did they start during a tough time in my life?” Keep asking & digging until you get to the ROOT.
💫 REWRITE: “I’m choosing a new narrative for myself, like ‘My body is my BFF, all foods I enjoy have a place in my life, I’m the only one who decides how I eat, my mom gave me her own food baggage & I’m giving it back.”
