Y’all! I have fallen so far off the wagon. I told you all that this happens from time to time. Nothing to be ashamed of. It’s the holidays!
I am a very self aware person. I realize when I am not making the best choices and over the last couple weeks, i’ve noticed it, but haven’t really cared. To be honest, this year has been rough for everybody at some point. I refuse to spend the last little bit of this year worried about what I’m eating.
Now, I have maintained going to the gym, even though I don’t want to sometimes. I just get up, and drink my pre-workout and go. The working out is a lot easier for me than eating nutritious food. Working out is basically therapy for me. It helps with my anxiety and gives me time to not think about everything else going on in my world.
Eating though, is a whole different story. I lover sweets and every year without fail, I start eating them and can’t seem to get enough. I know I’m not eating out of hunger. I’m eating because it smells delicious and grandma or my mom made it…with love. And above everything else good food makes me uber happy.
If you have been following along, you’ve probably seen me post about emotional eating and things of that nature. Which I do believe in eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are full. BUT! I also believe in being happy. So if that means, sometimes I cave and eat more candy and pizza than I probably should. Oh well.
Also, for the love of Pete (still don’t know who he is), when you begin your wellness journey, no matter what that looks like, please make sure you are doing it for yourself. Along the way and even before you start you will have people telling you what to do and how to do it. Which diets to follow. which foods are “bad”. Which exercises are better. It is vital that you remember to do what makes you happy. At the end of the day, it’s your journey. So eat the brownie. Go for a walk, or don’t. But please don’t give up. Don’t let it be the end because you caved when your mom made cookies.
Live life! We only have a little bit more to get through this year. And it has been a rough one. So enjoy the rest of it!!
