Bob just said, “It’s okay to binge.” * I’ve never heard anyone say that, much less my favorite experts, Bob and Brad, self described as “The Most Famous Physical Therapists on the Internet.”
But wait a minute! I’ve basically been saying the same thing in our family for years. “There is a time for feasting.” I say it all the time. Turns out, God Himself in His infinitely perfect plan for us said it first! There are multiple times of feasting not only mentioned but actually mandated in the Bible.
So, let’s live out what we believe. Why beat ourselves up for celebrating, loading up on and enjoying good food and fellowship. Yes, we may have put on a few extra pounds over the holiday season. That’s the reality of feasting. So perhaps now it is time to pull back a little on the food and exercise a bit more. We will get back into balance and a natural rhythm with healthy foods and portion control. It is okay!
*It’s not okay when you are in an addictive binge eating cycle. If that is you, get some help from your doctor. Check out FitMamas blog, “Are You Eating Your Feelings?”
