Hi everyone! Every month, our wellness community locks arms for a Shred10 - 10 days of shredding habits and foods that don't serve us, and flooding our bodies with the food and habits that move us forward. One of our guidelines is to try to finish our last meal by 6 pm. I want to dig into this suggestion and a little bit more because it's not about just what we eat, but when we eat it. Here's a few things to chew on:
I know what many of you are thinking...
"I don't even get out of work until 6 pm!"
"I have dinner with my spouse and I wait for her/him to get home!"
"I'm hungry at night!"
Constraints can get in the way, and habits and desires can be barriers. So I'll just ask you to think about how you could shift. Could you have a small salad or your smoothie with your spouse at dinner instead of a full meal? Can you shut down the kitchen for the night after, say, 7 pm? Can you push breakfast off in the morning and focus on rehydrating before refueling? This is all about small shifts, that lead to changes, that lead to lasting changes.
We are planning our next Shred10 as I write this so let me know if you want to jump in, give me a holler!
Love you all!
