I've been away camping the last 5 days. I always mean to write that in advance, but somehow blogging instead of packing on Friday night would not have been cool. Something about pulling my weight or some such nonsense.
I wanted to be a tourist in my own country. We never do that, instead flying overseas (or Tasmania, either way) to look at historic buildings, gorgeous gardens, drink wine and eat cheese. So I googled and googled and googled and ended up with a list easily to fill in 10 days.
We patted sheep - they are soft and curly! Yeah, city girl, I know.
Oh and walked avoiding these critters, hugged trees and gazed at the stars.
Saw the light at the end of the tunnel, before eating some heavenly lavender scones and hitting the MTB trail.
Ate a cheese ball...after trying some more wine and looking at another wonderful garden.
The best bit? Forgetting about fat, health and fitting in exercise. Moving all day long. Eating when hungry, mostly often and a lot. Not having cravings. No mirrors - lucky since I forgot to bring a comb; fingers are a wonderful invention. Forget about goals or plans for where I want to be in 6 months time.
In the car on the way we talked about MizFit's 'Unapologetically Myself'. Leaving everything behind a few hundred kilometres of bitumen, I decided to live it. Be in the moment. Feel comfortable in my skin. Accept all my peculiarities.
It felt amazing. Now the challenge is to carry that feeling forward today, tomorrow and next week.
