My Healthy Declaration Of Independence

Happy Fourth of July!

Last year I wrote out this healthy declaration of independence. It is a good reminder of my real priorities as I am struggling to get back on track after too many special events and conferences and as I am coping with my slow recovery from my nagging ITB issues.

My Declaration of Independence

Stars & Stripes Bar

  • I declare myself free from greasy foods that leave me feeling gross.
  • I declare myself free from sugary snacks that make me crash and burn.
  • I declare myself free from craving soda that rots my teeth.
  • I declare myself free from guilt about indulging when it’s worth it.
  • I declare myself free from choosing clothes that hide my figure.
  • I declare myself free from sitting on the sidelines because I’m too out of shape to play.

Stars & Stripes Bar

  • I celebrate my freedom to enjoy a varied diet of nutritious, delicious foods.
  • I celebrate my freedom to say “No, thank you” to food pushers.
  • I celebrate my freedom from food hangovers and carb comas.
  • I celebrate my freedom to wear white pants and horizontal stripes.
  • I celebrate my freedom to blame designers—and not myself—when I can’t find clothes that fit.
  • I celebrate my freedom (and ability) to enjoy an active lifestyle.
