I expressed a slight dilemma I’ve been dealing with lately and just wanted to highlight why I feel I’ve let myself and you guys down a bit lately.
I’ve been obsessing more about my body again and not in a caring, loving, nourishing way. In a hurtful way that shows little respect for the body that does so much for me.
I haven’t been foam rolling and stretching daily. I need to and know I should but haven’t been putting in the effort too. I get it in once every two days or so.
I haven’t been feeding my body enough when it needs it.
I’ve begun turning to food as an emotional crutch to avoid my issues. Not bingeing by any means, but snacking and overeating at times.
I haven’t been taking time out to relax.
I’ve been drinking water, but just not enough. I can’t let being busy get on top of my health and hydration.
I’ve started to get more spiteful than supportive for friends, acquaintances and strangers who I see making an effort to get healthy. Im ashamed of my thoughts and judgements.
I’m really sorry for this but I felt it was necessary to share just to show that we all have times that we are less than ‘ideal’. Plus I think it’s only fair to be honest with all you amazing people. I know I preach it, but I really have to start practising it too. Here’s what I’m going to try to do to rectify these things (to finish on a positive and proactive note!)
Drink more water and make an effort to drink it during and after my sweaty workouts.
EAT!!!! Remember I need more food then some, especially on heavy workout days. (Or just remember to not compare your eating with others- never a productive approach). Eating is nothing to be ashamed of- you’re doing the right thing for your body.
Do breathing techniques once a day, and make an effort to just chill (yes, this will be a struggle).
Focus on helping others instead of competing against them.
Take time out to worry and expose my issues. Deal with it, don’t dodge it (courtesy of my sexy man).
Since this is written and spread round the net, you guys can definitely keep me accountable. One step to being a better, happier, stronger and healthier me!
How are you going to work on yourself?
