Creating Balance

Life by Design, Mindset, Self Worth • March 22, 2024

As I reflect on my recent self-care weekend in Orlando, a rush of gratitude and contentment floods over me. 🥰

Picture this: the warm Florida sun kissing my skin as I lay poolside, a gentle breeze carrying the soothing melodies of my favorite music. It was a weekend of sheer bliss, a moment where time seemed to stand still, allowing me to savor every second of pure relaxation.👙😎

You see, this getaway wasn’t about escaping reality; it was about creating harmony and balance in my life. It was about honoring my health and fitness goals while also embracing the joys and pleasures that life has to offer.

During those blissful days, I made a conscious decision to step away from the constant hustle of chasing my dreams. I forgot about my to do list and instead indulged in moments of tranquility. My usual workouts were replaced with leisurely evening walks, allowing me to connect with nature and unwind from the day’s activities.

Even my approach to food took on a new perspective. I made mindful choices, stocking up on wholesome groceries to nourish my body. Of course, there was a delightful exception—a shared meal with a dear friend, where I savored every bite of a delicious bacon cheeseburger and crispy fries. It was a moment of indulgence without guilt, a reminder that balance is not about deprivation but about making informed choices that align with our goals and well-being. 🍔🍟

Reflecting on past experiences, I realized how easy it was to use vacations or social outings as a free pass to abandon my goals. It was a cycle of self-sabotage disguised as temporary pleasure, ultimately leaving me feeling disconnected and unfulfilled.

However, this time was different. This time, I had something invaluable—a plan and unwavering commitment to myself. I also have a coach and accountability partner. It wasn’t just about a single weekend; it was about a lifestyle shift, a mindset of balance and self-respect.

As I returned from my rejuvenating escape, I brought with me a renewed sense of purpose and empowerment. I proved to myself that with the right support and mindset, I can navigate life’s temptations without veering off course. Each choice I made was a testament to my dedication to holistic well-being; a commitment that extends far beyond a weekend getaway and into a fulfilling, balanced life.

And I’m back at it after a week off with not a single pound gained! 💪🥳

Here’s to another week of living your life by design, not by default!
