Summer Parties, Bloat, and Over-Induldging

Parties, Bloat, and Overeating... OH MY!!!

We're almost to summer and that means outdoor party season is finally here! YIPPY!!!!

Who doesn't love a good cookout equip with friends, family, outdoor activities, and loads of amazing potluck style food?!?

I definitely consider myself a food enthusiast and because of my love for trying new foods, cooking, and eating, I'm a sucker for potlucks and cookouts. Can you relate?

Now, if you're anything like me, a couple of things happen during these events where you feel the urge to try every single item on the menu so you don't miss out on some brilliant food combination you've never thought of before:

1. Loads of Over-Indulging - because you certainly can't miss out on Aunt Beth's Strawberry Delight, Carla's Crazy Corn, and Jack's Spicy Jalapeno Potatoes and you have to make sure you enjoy every last bite (you might not ever get to experience this again)!
2. Inevitable Bloating - because you mixed a ton of different food together and now you're so uncomfortable you're not sure if you can participate in croquet or horse shoes.

After the over-indulging and bloat set in, you find yourself angry that you HAD to try everything on the menu and then proceeded to eat seconds.

Now, all the healthy food and working out you did all week has completely went out the door because you just sabotaged every bit of effort you put in and you're feeling pretty down on yourself.

I get it, I've been there!

I've been there more times than I would like to admit. However, after years of suffering through party bloat, I've finally learned how to claim my power back over cookout and party foods and still thoroughly enjoy myself.

I want to share the things I've learned with you!

These are really powerful tips for you to claim your power back to stay clear of bloat brought on by party indulgence and still be able to enjoy yourself:

I hope these tips help you claim your power to avoid the belly bloat and enjoy your summer parties!

I'll just have one more cookie....

Have you ever downed an entire package of chips, crackers, or cookies?

Ate pizza or cake until you felt sick?

Drank more coffee or wine than your body wanted?

Do you remember how you were feeling at the time?

I ask because sometimes we overeat to help distract us from emotional pain. Think about it—have you noticed that sometimes when you overeat you’re not hungry at all? What you are is lonely. Or angry. Or sad. Or resentful. Or frustrated. Or something else.

So what hurt are YOU holding on to?

Tap Into the Power of Forgiveness

Wouldn’t it be more effective to address your uncomfortable feelings? The best, most thorough, most divinely perfect way to do that is forgiveness.

Forgiving is not easy, even for the most enlightened among us. If you’ve been allowing your present health to be controlled by past hurts, I urge you to commit to forgiving. These steps can help:
  • Talk to sympathetic friends and family about your desire to forgive. Chatting with others is tremendously comforting.
  • Write a letter to the person you’d like to forgive. You can decide whether or not you send it.
  • See the situation from the other person’s perspective—your own perspective may change.
  • Don’t forget to forgive yourself. Sometimes we can be harshest with ourselves.
  • Understand that you are responsible for your own attitude. Don’t let holding a grudge keep you from feeling free, open, and powerful in your own life.
Forgive and watch how much easier your relationship with eating becomes.
