I have struggled with this for many years. Judging my food choices, judging my decision to take a day off exercise. Why do we do this to ourselves?
And funny enough I don’t judge anyone else for their choices... so why am I battling myself?
There came a time when I FINALLY let myself be me 100%. I make mistakes, and I am OK with it. I make healthy, carb free, sugar free food choices often. I also make full fat unhealthy choices with no guilt! I am human, I have amazing days and I have harder days to stay motivated just like you.
I have finally found who I am with no guilt or regret. If someone in my life makes me feel guilty or down, sorry I don’t have room for that energy anymore. I am a mom of 2 boys, I have a husband I dreamed of (cheesy but so true), my parents I adore and couldn’t do life without and my best friends and family are people I could spend endless hours with just enjoying the moments! I live in the moment and a big part of where this energy comes from is my dedication to my health; mental, emotional, physical. I care about taking care of me. I went thru years of feeling selfish for it... but guess what, those feelings are gone. It’s not selfish to take care of you. If you love you, first and foremost, every single relationship in your life will benefit.
It’s not about vanity for me, it is my sanity, my true happiness, my ability to care for my family and friends. Make you a priority and you will benefit so greatly.
