Hi There! Happy Easter:)
Yes, really…I repeat these blogs each and every holiday because we need the reminder. It’s not that you don’t know what to do… I believe you have the knowledge, tools and information to be successful today…
But.. it’s easy to get distracted and persuaded into the moment, and before you realize it, you’ve uncomfortably overeaten the ENTIRE Easter basket. AND we both know this behavior is NOT aligned with you feeling the way you wanna feel in your body.
If you end up going that route.. that’s ok. What’s not ok … is judging yourself for what you did, feeling ashamed, feeling bad (physically and emotionally), feeling guilt and AND most importantly feeling ANGRY about having “0” control around food.
Today, instead of sending you a “healthy recipe,” a “FAT BURNING workout” or giving you the “5 tips to stay on track during the Holiday,”… I’m giving you a sacred mind tool…
“Anticipating Suffering and DON’T even going there.”
Know yourself. Know that most people aren’t like us and they aren’t going to understand our behavior around food. And that’s ok.
Today, when you find yourself vulnerable and you can anticipate eating the ENTIRE chocolate bunny… plus… everything else… don’t put yourself in that position.
If you even slightly think you’ll lose control around that chocolate bunny, why would you even play yourself to THINK you’ll be ok with one bite?!?!? NOPE… don’t go there today. Yep. Cross that idea off the list!
Here’s a short story of what happened to me last Easter:
I have a friend who had an easter BBQ at her home. There was a HUGE Brazilian chocolate egg (milk chocolate) in the kitchen with stuffed chocolates of all sorts.
So my curious self says, hmmm… I’ll just try it… so I did… and my taste buds went BONKERS! Like crazy eyes popping out of head. (I know I’m kinda Dramatic..haha). Anyhoo, I probably made (like no joke) 10 visit from outside to inside… and each time grabbing more chunks of it. (By the way, this thing was HUGE… if you haven’t experienced a Brazilian Chocolate Egg… Don’t Even Go There! But you can google the image to get a better idea of what I’m talking about). It’s sugar crack… Seriously I had “0” control. By the time everyone came in the house to eat dessert (“the choclate egg”)… ummm… It was GONE! I was so embarrassed and physically sick. I ate the ENTIRE dessert!
TIME TRAVEL: That day, if I could rewind and re-do, which this year is a new opportunity… I would have anticipated my suffering and not even tricked myself into trying it. You wanna know why? Because I know myself. And that’s me just being real.
Try This Today…
1. Be real with yourself and “ANTICIPATE SUFFERING AND DON’T EVEN GO THERE.”
2. If you found value in todays newsletter share it with friend/family and social media.
3. If you need help, I got you. Email me at info@TanyaSilva.com.
- The concept above saves me not only for the Holidays, but in all situations I feel emotionally vulnerable in. I don’t allow the curiosity to trick me anymore. I anticipate my behavior and I refuse to put myself in situations that break me down.
Anyhoo… Happy Easter! xoxo.
And in the meantime, Remember to Look, Feel & Be Your Best Today!
