I’m not gonna lie – this week has been hard. The past few months, actually, have been tough. With a big move, changes in my job, working out 5-6 days a week (mostly 2x a day), cooking and trying to keep the blog going, I feel like I haven’t really slowed down whatsoever.
I honestly can’t remember a time in the past 3 years that I took a real break to just enjoy the moment and think about what I really want and how I want to live my life.
I’ve been posting a lot of healthy meals and the workouts that I’m doing but it’s really not as easy as it might look.
I’m exhausted all the time.
Some days, it takes everything in me to get moving first thing in the morning.
Other times, I make or order my favorite meals like mac n cheese, Mexican food & pizza… and then feel guilty for days, like eating those meals isn’t okay because it doesn’t align to the persona I portray myself as online.
I shouldn’t feel guilty about what I eat. If it makes me happy, I should enjoy it. I need to be proud that I choose to make or order my favorite meals healthier, not that I chose to ate it. I love food and I need to stop apologizing for that.
Granted, a lot of the time I DO eat exactly as I post. Today, for example, I really did start my day with a homemade granola bar, green juice, kombucha & infused water. I love those meals… I just need to start feeling that way about when I eat the “not-so-healthy” meals too (whatever that means – who decides what’s healthy or not?!).
I feel like more of us need to share what’s REALLY happening on our health journeys, not what we think people want to see. Changing your lifestyle isn’t always rainbows & butterflies – it’s hard work. But hopefully it’ll be worth it!
