It’s that time of year again! “Back to School” is probably what you’re thinking, and while you’re not wrong – it’s not exactly what I’m talking about here.
Has this happened to you: You worked hard all spring and early summer to get into shape for the summer season- for bathing suits and beaches, for vacations, and lots of sun. Many of you may have even reached your goals – were feeling healthy and fit at the start of summer…
But then backyard barbecues happened! And lots of summer ice cream happened. And the long days, and late nights meant eating more than you normally do, and lo and behold a few extra pounds have crept back on. Urgh
So it’s that time of year again. Whether you’re actually in school or not, this is the time of year we either buy new cooler weather clothes, or pull out the stuff from last year, and thanks to all the summer burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream this isn’t as fun as it could be. Last years clothes maybe fit a little snugger, but on principle, you just don’t want to buy new clothes – bigger clothes, right? Because when we do that it’s an admission – an acknowledgement that we’ve fallen off track. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard (and sometimes said myself) “I’m going to keep it even though it doesn’t fit – I’ll get back into them one day!” I know that for me, when my jeans make me feel like a stuffed sausage, it’s time to make some changes!
But while it’s super easy to just haul out the oversized sweaters and sweatpants, that’s not really how we want to dress, and certainly not how we want to feel!
I want to ask you – during this time of year – busy “back to school” end of summer/start of fall – what is it that you truly want?
Comment below or send me a quick email with a note about what you really want this fall – do you want a little less bloating? Do you want more energy to get through the busy, hectic days? Do you want quick and healthy recipes that can help you not only get back into shape, but help you get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes?
I can’t wait to hear what you want for yourself this fall!
