⚠️I used to binge eat⚠️ .
Quite a way to start a post huh? I actually had 2 VERY unhealthy habits that were opposites: I binge ate, or I simply didn’t eat at all (but I’ll touch on the latter at a different time). .
But yes. I binge ate. I’m talking sitting at home eating my feelings alll day for several weeks or months. It was usually triggered by negative emotions of course like feeling a heavy lack of self confidence, depression, body dysmorphia, anxiety, homesickness, past toxic relationships, etc. But then it turned into bored eating, happy eating, celebration eating, blah blah blah. .
It was not until I got serious in the fitness world that I learned how EXTREMELY unhealthy of a lifestyle choice that was. Did y’all know that the standard meal at a restaurant is actually nutritionally WAYYY over what you even need in 3 meals or maybe even an ENTIRE DAY sometimes? .
Moving forward, life goes on & of course I experience those negative emotions hit me from time to time, perfect example being this past week. My stress & anxiety was through the mf roof & of course SO much happened that I couldn’t even really pinpoint it🤦🏼♀️. .
The urge that disguised it’s self as a “need” was to go get wine & pizza & brownies & bread & a milkshake...But I didn’t. Fighting the urge made me cry and hate myself but sometimes self tough love is what will bring back the straight up self-love even faster. .
That kind of made my look back on when I was training myself and how my lifestyle was. There were plenty of times I was able to practice balance in my diet that I had never been able to master before. Now, I have only been back with my coach for about 3 weeks but can clearly see the changes in myself, one being the binge eating issue is not an issue! It will never fully go away but with more balance and discipline anything is possible ✨ .
