Hey fam long time no talk. I’ve been procrastinating posting, because I knew I’d have some explaining to do about my absence... so let’s do this.
To make it short, I am fine. I just wanted to take some time and disconnect for my own mental health.
It’s actually kind of strange, I can’t pin point what caused this funk I’ve been in. A few days ago it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t want to leave my house, go to the gym, or be productive whatsoever. I just wanted to eat, sleep & repeat.
When I feel like that, or basically anytime I don’t feel my best, I tend to hide away from the world and not talk about my feelings. Healthy right? Lol (not). I don’t like to feel weak or vulnerable, and I definitely don’t like to admit it to others when I do.
But then I remember that sharing my fitness journey with you isn’t just about showing you the good, it’s also about showing the bad.
So, this is me. A human who goes through ups and downs just like everyone else. This isn’t the first funk I’ve been in and definitely won’t be my last. I am not motivated 100% of the time, I get overwhelmed, I am not the best at social media, and I’m definitely not the best at sharing my feelings.
But each day I work on being a better version of myself, and when I slip I always get back up. That’s what really counts. If anyone else is going through a hard time in life or just a funk like me, just know you aren’t alone and each day we can ALL get better.
Thank you all for your love and support even when I skip a few days posting. I truly do have the best fam out there! #ILYSM #mentalhealth
