Do I Look Fat?

28 Jan

 

Used to be a regular utterance.  It hasn’t gotten much use since I shifted to a mostly whole food, plant based diet… but this phrase has been creeping up in my vocabulary recently.  It is winter.  It is cold.  I am bundled under bulky sweaters rather than slinky bikinis – but yet I find myself judging my body as if it should fit in a bikini.  Why?

I am learning to eat with the seasons, with what the earth provides.  I am learning to listen to my body & what it wants.  I didn’t run during this insanely frigid week in New York.  This morning I ate Ezekial Cinnamon Raisin Bread with melted dark chocolate topped with olive oil & a side of banana and peanut butter, it was incredibly delicious.

Winter is a time where fat is necessary. I need it, and I have gained it. Not much – but I feel it.  What can you do – but continue to take the next right steps for a glowing, radiant existence.

I am ending my day with a Tumeric Tea and enjoying this next right step.
