It’s probably about that time where the “new year new me “ has lost its luster. I tried SO hard to stay on track through the Holidays, they are tough on everyone! Then I had to throw in the fact that I was sick for weeks back to back and in the middle of picking up my life and moving to a different city PLUS work was a lot of pressure on me.
My scale has been dead for WEEKS. I literally did not change the batteries in my scale because I was all messed up in my head about gaining weight and didn’t want to see the number. I thought if I got on the scale it was going to be 12lbs heaver, I’m not joking …. I finally got on last weekend and I was barley up 5lbs and was getting upset over NOTHING.
When you’ve been through tough relationships that make you self conscious about your weight, an eating disorder and then throw in the fact you are constantly scrolling on Instagram seeing all these “amazing bodies” your self image can be a mess. There are going to be times where you miss workouts or you mess up on your meals, you are human BUT don’t let it drag out and be the person that gets in your own way. This definitely has become a lifestyle for me and with that you need to see the big picture. Sure there are times that I’m getting ready for a photo shoot or some sort of event and I go a little bit more hard-core but overall I have come to terms that being a thyroid cancer survivor my life has to be lived a little bit differently with my nutrition.
I love how I look and feel when I TAKE CARE OF MY BODY. that’s how I see all the time in the gym & kitchen, me taking care of ME. Are you taking care of YOU?
