You’re on the journey of recovery to get your period back. You’ve stopped exercising, started incorporating ALL foods, listened to extreme hunger, stuck to a consistent eating schedule and then… you get your period back!!! And then… you’re stuck in this very weird place of not knowing how to get back to balance… can you even ever get back to balance without it every being disordered? Will you forever be seen as restricting if you order a salad for lunch?
In todays podcast I talked with Kertsen who helps women get their period back after going too hard on the dieting and doing crazy exercise regimes. We had a fun time chatting about;
*Letting go of perfectionism and finding the grey area. Aka balance is key
*Obsessing over the numbers… where will that get us?
*How much is *too* much exercise??
*The #1 thing Kersten sees women do wrong on their quest for health
*The ‘burn’ + ‘earn’ cycle
*Pushing calories down post recovery. Do you always have to say yes?
*PTSD of your past restrictive days
*Bringing mindfulness into your eating in a non-obsessive way
There were a lot of other great nuggets of wisdom in this show so I hope you enjoy!
