Our guest this
week is Anna Rubano, of In Tune with Anna K. We're talking about
self care for moms who have ADHD and we're talking about food
choices. This is a sore spot for a lot of us moms. How do we plan
for healthy eating when we're barely surviving on handfuls of
goldfish crackers and sandwich scraps leftover from our toddler?
Take a deep breath and relax. This isn't a chat on the benefits of
paleo vs. keto, or how to count your macros.
Anna will encourage you no matter what your food choices
currently are. Our discussion isn't about what you look like, or
achieving that goal weight, or the perfect meal plan. Instead, we
-how can we take care of ourselves through making small
changes in our food choices
-using food as fuel to nourish our bodies and feed our ADHD
-how Anna stays committed when she does not have
-what you can do to get started when you are feeling
-ideas on how to stick to your meal plan when you don't really
feel like eating that thing any more
Anna is a holistic health coach, helping women integrate whole
health into their lives, looking beyond just healthy food choices
to what is happening off the plate and in your life. She's not
pushing diet culture. Instead she guides women on how to work on
our physical health with big picture view - not nitpicking the
details - which is a great match for our ADHD brains.
Taking care of yourself is a basic requirement of living -
like food and water - not a luxury item. Self-care can and
must be done in every stage of motherhood. Get ready - let's figure
out what self-care truly fits you. You are worthy. You are
valuable. You are not alone.
Anna's journey is part of our March Mama Madness Series. Be
sure to listen to part 1, when Anna shares her ADHD diagnosis story
of being diagnosed later in life after her son was diagnosed with
ADHD. We covered aaaaaaall the feelings of shame starting in
childhood, feeling like we're not good enough, and the grief &
relief of having your diagnosis. Anna's soft spoken strength gives
us hope that we can find our strength, too. Get ready to laugh and
cringe as you hear parts of your life woven through Anna's story as
she shares her ADHD journey with us, and witness her honesty and
vulnerability through her struggles with ADHD. Come'on. Meet your
fellow Successful ADHD Mama.
