Now I know why I can’t seem to stick to keto…
Because extremes never win!
I’ve always been wary when people say they “don’t drink” or “never eat carbs”…
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome to take a break from something… I’ve done that lots too and a reset is great 🙌
But to go as far as to say I never do something, is to inflict extreme rules around something.
It’s never black-and-white.
Rigid rules and expectations are the ego’s playground… sounding noble at first, but in essence setting us up to fail.
And then when we do, we get to feel like a bad person.
So, for the last year and a half, I’ve been struggling to stay on the keto diet.
It was good intentions first – to heal a gut issue and was recommended by my naturopath.
I love “good” food.
The secret is out!
And so, then I would eventually slip. And as Tony Robbins says, once he slips he keeps on slipping!
I hear you Tony!
And so for me the weight would come back.
With me left feeling defeated.
But I had an ah-ha moment… I don’t like extremes and don’t do well with them long term.
No wonder it wasn’t working 🤦🏻♀️
And so, my NEW approach is, what did I love about keto and what made me feel great?
That is what I will stick with moving forward, while lightning-up on the “rules” around it.
And please… what is with this craze to look and act “perfect” whatever that is!!
And guess what?
When I allow myself that grace, I operate more from more of a self-love place, and come close to a keto regime anyway!
Funny how that happens right?
So Amber, what rules do you need to let go of?
In life and business?
What rules are keeping you in such a place of rigidity that you’ve forgotten how to be flexible and compassionate?
And I’m not just talking about for others – this is for YOU!
When we lighten up our energy, we allow for the most amazing things to come in 💫
Happy weekend and let’s connect on social too 💛
