Happy T-B-J Tuesday! Here are 3 healthy living Tips, 2 Book recommendations (one self-improvement and one fun), and 1 Journal prompt to ponder this week!
T: 3 Healthy Living Tips
☀️ 3 things you can do today to feel more in control of food:
- Eat when you feel hungry (regardless of what the clock says)
- Eat real nourishing and filling meals
- Tell that judgmental voice in your head to GTFO
☀️Afraid to stop counting calories in fear of ‘losing control’? HARD TRUTH: if you’re binge eating, repeatedly overeating, or constantly obsessing over food, are you in control now?
☀️5 things you can thank your body for today (even if you don't love it): thank your body for…
- Allowing me to taste – taste chocolate, pizza, and all the other delicious foods that are so yummy
- Allowing me to hug – to hug my partner, my family, my pets, and all the other people I love
- And allowing me to laugh – and to smile, and to experience joy
- Allowing me to experience today – whether it's a great day or not. Thank you for allowing me to be here
- Still being here, even after everything I've put you through – because you didn't deserve that, and I am so grateful to still have you with me
B: 2 Book Recommendations (one self-improvement and one fun)
📚For Self Improvement (on relationships): Attached by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller
Friends… FRIENDS, I have a story to tell you. I always struggled with relationships growing up – choosing people with SO MANY RED FLAGS, yet ignoring everyone because I thought I could change them 😳 I went back to therapy to specifically talk about this, and she recommended I read this book. CHANGED. MY. LIFE. I am not kidding. I met my husband a few months after as I completely altered the way I approached relationships knowing about my attachment style.
Whether you are single or in a relationship – learning your attachment style is a MUST for healthy relationships! Could not recommend this book more!
📚For Fun (Romance): The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
Eeeek, this is such a light and fun read! I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did – but oh yes, it's a good one 😍
Quick Synopsis (from Amazon): As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn't believe in lasting romantic relationships–but her best friend does, and that's what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.
That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor–and well-known ass. This is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford's reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive's career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding…six-pack abs.
Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.
