I’ll spend the next 5 days in a spa with my mum – yeah! I’ve been intermittent fasting for about one year, and getting better and better at it so I’m going to do it for the next 5 days. I’m willing to feel very uncomfortable telling my mum about it, observing her probably freaking out (her thoughts, her emotions, her actions) and I’ve rehearsed my arguments (in case she wants me to explain): I think it’s absurd to eat when I’m not hungry; I’m not hungry at lunchtime; therefore, I have no lunch. It’s easy because it’s 100% true.
I’ve also started to think the simple thought “I don’t need sugar nor flour” which I also believe 100%. I tried “sugar and flour are poisons” which I also kind of believe, but that felt wrong. I now understand it was because it created a negative emotion, like disgust, fear. When I think “I don’t need sugar or flour”, I feel rather light, free. I like that thought.
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on my holiday with my mum – a great opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings and to connect with me and her through interesting conversations!
Have a great day!
