Do You Want Potatoes With Your Breakfast Madam? How To Avoid Vacation Bulge.

As you will know from the recent feast of great guest posts on Body Incredible, I’m currently living it up for 6 weeks in the US and Canada. We’d been planning this trip for a couple of years, and given that I’d never been to this part of the world before I was supremely excited. But also a little nervous. After all, everyone knows that it’s impossible to go to the States without gaining weight. Right? With out of control portion sizes at even the healthier eating places, and breakfast staples such as potatoes for heavens sake, you basically don’t stand a chance. My friends who’d previously visited this part of the world solemnly informed me that I had no choice. After 6 weeks, I would absolutely be coming back fatter. (Thanks for the faith guys – except you Pete :))

Determination

Well. You may have heard of a little thing called determination, and  – despite the fact that I typically gain about 1kg for every week on holidays – when it comes to my keeping off the baby weight I worked so damn hard to lose, I have buckets of the stuff. I didn’t work my butt off (in more ways than one, obviously) all year only to gain it back again in 6 weeks. And yeah, I know somebody is sure to comment right about now on how I’m “on holidays and should relax”, but here’s the thing. And maybe this is just a peculiarity of my obsessive personality. You see, I feel my most relaxed, my most happiest, and certainly my most confident, when I’m in control. Yup, I’m a control freak. And to me, being in control means looking and feeling a certain way. It’s part of how I define myself, it’s important for my job, and, well, let’s face it, I could come up with a whole string of justifications but I think you get the idea.

Anyway. Back to my pre-US-holiday nerves. My roughly formed plan before leaving had been to live on a diet of fish oil and BCAA supplements, coupled with some quality protein powder, and then eat whatever I want for dinner. I know myself well enough to know that if I start indulging at the breakfast buffet it’s all downhill from there. Fortunately, however, I’ve found that it is a little easier than I thought it would be to eat well. It just takes a little planning, and some basic common sense.

If travel is on your agenda, or if you live somewhere where it’s more common to stuff your body with junk than not, these tips might help you. They’ve definitely saved my butt from bouncing back to its preggie-shaped alter-ego these past few weeks!

staying healthy while traveling – the rules

1. Portion control is out of control in many parts of the world. The US certainly is known for it, but I know many restaurants back home typically go for quantity over quality, and it’s almost what we’ve come to expect. Don’t kid yourself that you’ll resist, simply remove temptation in the first place. Order entree sizes, or split a main and a salad with someone else.

2. Bread is a killer. There’s almost no food I love more than warm fresh bread with butter. While this is harmless once a week or so, if it’s one big-ass piece a day, it really does start to add up. And let’s be honest, If it’s one piece, it’s probably two. Several times a day. Isn’t it? Which is the real problem. So keep things simple, and don’t go there. Choose healthy appetisers such as fresh salad, a bowl of olives, some pickled veg or seafood, or just a big glass of mineral water.

3. The longer you can hold out, the better you’ll be able to mitigate full dietary disaster. This might just be me, but if I start eating crap first thing in the morning (even a few mouthfuls), I basically just keep eating little treats and nibbles all day long. Those little bites of sugary rubbish (usually), or starchy processed grains, sure can add up into an extra lump of lard on your booty after a week or more.

4. Do your research. If staying healthy is truly important to you, you’ll make an effort to find healthy food. I’ve visited some great Wholefoods organic stores here, which were certainly not on the tourist trail but an important time investment nonetheless. There is always a healthy option if you’re only willing to look for it.

5. Be smart about dressings. Chicken salad can sound fairly innocuous, and certainly should be. But if you’re drinking half a cup of oily slop with each of your so-called healthy meals then you know you’re kidding yourself. Dressing on the side, or not at all please!

6. Enjoy a few bevvies – but make it antioxidant-boosting wine. A cocktail here and there is fine, but nightly spirits with soda? Not so good.

7. Save the indulgence for dessert! I don’t mean every night. And this is probably just down to personal preference, but I like to eat very clean throughout the day, steer clear of heavy (or any) grains with dinner, and then enjoy an occasional yummy dessert. That’s something I really do love, whereas grain-based or starchy foods, or sugary treats through the day tend to be something I feel like I want at the time but then right away feel crappy afterwards.

Those are my top tips – otherwise known as ‘what I’ve learned about staying in control on this trip!’ Do you have anything to add?

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
