B O D Y - I M A G E
What do you see when you first look at this picture?
Last week I struggled big time with emotional eating. Even though I consider myself victorious over food addiction, I still have times in my life when old habits tempt me and I choose to give into it again. When I allow food to be in control, it changes my thinking. It suffocates my focus, confidence and self-love. When I give into my emotions, I become unmotivated, unsure and self-critical. .
I post this picture because all week I felt huge, bloated, blobby, tired, ashamed and wanting to cover up. Notice the word: FELT. Ever notice how many times the way we FEEL doesn't align with REALITY?
Bcause I have come so far in my personal health journey, I knew covering up would only be another way to give into my emotions and let them control me... So Saturday in yoga class I taught in a crop top and faced my insecurities head on!💪 .
I post this picture because if it were a friend of mine, instead of myself in this photo, I'd think: "Cute bralette!" and "Lol the pile of laundry, story of my life!" But since its myself, all I can focus on is a bloated belly. It's amazing how self-critical we can be! ➡️But this ends right now.⬅️ I'm choosing to remove emotion, acknowledging last week for what it was and an opportunity to grow from it and keep moving forward! I'm hoping YOU also are able to see just how needlessly self-critical you probably are too. We are so much harder on ourselves than we ever should be. .
Negativity gets you no where, except further down. Remove the emotion (unless its positive) and find the good, because it's there and always has been. Change your mind, change your life- YOUVE GOT THIS!!! 😄❤
