Have you ever punished yourself for eating too much crap on a night out or a vacation?😳 I HOPE NOT, BUT, I share this because I HAVE. I am embarrassed to admit this, but years ago, this was me. I would feel guilty so I would eat less and do lots of cardio 🤦🏼♀️. 💥 I’m not exactly sure when things started to change for me and when I got a clue, but I’m pretty sure it started when I began working out at home, learning about clean eating/eating REAL food (not low fat, fat free, “diet” crap) and surrounding myself with positive ladies working on the same things as me. 💥💥 Now, when I have a bad day or days (like when we were away this past weekend), I just move on. I get back to my workouts, back to my normal eating and that’s that. I don’t PUNISH myself with less food and more exercise. Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes I do still get annoyed with myself, asking why the heck did I go off the rails like that 😤, but the difference now is, again, I don’t punish myself! I just get back on track the best I can!
I will add that there are days now and then where it will be late afternoon and I will realize I have hardly eaten anything. But this is NOT because I am trying to punish myself, but because sometimes I just get caught up doing things and I just don’t eat. This isn’t good either but at least I’m not doing it because I am mad at myself. 💙 Because I have never had a huge weight loss, people assume I’ve never had weight or eating struggles. But I have. They have just been different. We are all different. We have our own struggles, and this has been one of mine.
