What’s Working

I recently added Weekly Bite to my list of favorite blogs.  Weekly Bite is written by a Registered Dietician with a penchant for a no-diet approach to eating that is both delicious and creative, an eye for design, and taking fantastic pictures of her absolutely adorable toddler.

I discovered it a month or so ago. I was counting calories; she was saying, "don't count calories." And I thought I'm so out of touch with my body right now, I just have to. But then the novelty wore off. And something pushed me to stop pushing myself to run so many miles and do what puts me in balance. And I thought, ok, Estela, maybe you're on to something.

One week ago, I started following the no-diet series she wrote about a year ago (which is still completely applicable to today, of course). I resisted the urge to read every entry for weeks one through ten my first week in. It's pretty common for me to get so excited about a concept, try to take it all it, try to planplanplan, and then end up overwhelmed and hardly in a better spot than the one I started from. I didn't want that to happen to me.

I made myself take it one step at a time. What's the rush, really? I've been fighting with my body and my mind for so long; why, when I find something good, do I try to turn it all around at once?

It was worth it. I'm one week in, feeling great, AND.

Making positive changes that effect the mind and the body snowball in very good ways.

  1. I’ve stumbled across Estela’s blog a few times – I’m always so impressed.

    Hope you have a wonderful day, Sarah! :)

  2. Thank you for the sweetness Sarah! Your post brought happy tears to my eyes :)

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series and taking your time with it. If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to email me! I’m happy to help :)

  3. Thanks for this new resource! Slow and steady wins the race. Even though there is no winner. I almost typed “Slow and steady runs the race.” A typo yes, but actually that’s what life is about… running & participating.

    God created us with internal, in born signals that tell us when we are hungry and satisfied. Unfortunately, we have learned to tune them out. But when we are still, and when we listen, we can relearn them.

    So excited for your journey. Namaste.
    PS: I’m off to check out that blog!!
