i’m realizing more and more how travel can be a quick way to connect to the deeper parts of you that desire to be acknowledged, held, seen and cared for. my trip to ny was emotional, beautiful, fun, challenging and filled with so much love and joy. it was absolutely amazing, even the tests! mainly because the lessons were so clear, important and valuable. and i’ve made peace with the fact that growth is often painful and so i embrace it. especially if it means i get to come out on the other side wiser, refined and more in tune with myself. i’m returning home with a full heart and an exhausted body that needs rest and a serious detox cuz i ate everything, lol. i need a vacation from my vacation so catch me at the korean spa drinking a green juice and probably still not responding to over 12,000 emails cuz #selfcare #andthatsjusthowitis #ineedsleep #howdofolksrespondtoalltheiremails #shitihavealotofworktodo #itwasworthitthough #travelwithtati #shehealher
When you've not been to the gym for a week but your brain tells you that you can still hit Yard Kettle Bells hard. Thought I was going to 🤮 Taxi for Mayling! 😂 Shake, rattle n roll 🎶 #Effortrewarded #itwasworthitthough #bringonthedoms
👆🏻This is what I looked like every single day.
No.. but really...
It’s been a joke for quite some time now between just about everyone I meet that “Abbie can sleep anywhere, anytime, and for a really long time.” Literally.
I owe the way I felt to the way I treated my body. I did NOT take care of it. I did not fuel my body with the foods I needed and I did not exercise regularly. I made ALL the excuses until I had finally had enough.
I was tired of always feeling tired. Sluggish. Lazy. Straight up exhausted. I was tired of feeling like I had to drag myself to the finish line of every day with the hopes of getting a 3 hour nap in there somewhere.
Finding a balance that works for me has been HARD. For quite some time I have struggled with what I put in my body— having a constant battle with myself in my head. I was either going through a strict calorie counting phase or an emotional eating phase..neither of which helped me in any way. I only finished the day feeling defeated and depleted.
So what has changed 👇🏻
Well, I still enjoy my sleep 😂but 3 hour naps are no longer my goal for every day. I wake up a little earlier and get my day moving in the right direction. I was afraid this would take more of the energy I already didn’t have but I was WRONG. Getting myself moving in the mornings physically, mentally, and spiritually changes my perspective on my list of things I need to do. It changes my attitude completely. It changes the whole trajectory of my day. And believe it or not, I get so much MORE accomplished because I am ready to tackle whatever comes my way!
This is a learning process and I won’t do it perfectly. But I’m beyond excited to keep pushing forward to see the changes in every aspect of my life.
What’s stopping you
P.s. fun fact: I got in trouble for laying on this rock at some ruins in Peru 😅🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️. #itwasworthitthough #changeisntsobad #nomoreexcuses
