Lately, I've been really sick of my wardrobe. I've gone through my closet probably three times in the past six months and purged it of a few bags of clothes.... today was the biggest purge yet.
One costco bag and four regular sized bags later, I finally feel like I have narrowed my wardrobe down to what I wear on a regular basis or special pieces that I really love. Some (a lot) might not fit right now, but that's okay. I'm on the journey to getting back into feeling like myself. I'm getting better at recognizing what's negative, what's energy draining, etc. and I've realized I need to cut out a few toxic relationships:
1. a few of my friends encourage a sedentary lifestyle and make me question my innate actions. If I feel like I'm constantly giving to these relationships and not receiving any benefit from them, I don't think I need to make them a high priority anymore.
2. water. I've neglected my hydration these past few months, and I've found myself without the need to refill my water bottle during the day... not good for my skin, metabolism, or my fitness. I need to nurture this relationship to get back on track.
3. starch. I've really got to fill up on greens before I head for the starches. It's all too easy to say I'll tend to my vegetable intake later, and I need to get back into (nonstarchy) veggies first.
4. moderation. I need to pay better attention to my hunger levels. Eat when I feel hungry and stop when I'm no longer hungry! plain and simple. No more tipping the end of each spectrum. Following an even keel is so much more balanced.
