I’ve worked damn hard. I’ve been on and off in the game of “loving” my body…and lately I’m feeling a bit..off. I’ve been in dark places and have had bad relationships with food and exercise (you can read about that here) and to be completely honest- I KNOW I will never go back.
I know that my body needs energy, and I need food to fuel my mind and muscles. I’ll never go back to the days of eating only hot chocolate mix and drinking 50 diet cokes (really), but there ARE times- like 4 or 5 this past week- that I look in the mirror and I just see this giant, out of shape, puffy looking girl.
I’m too smart for this. I know that I’m fit, healthy, confident, and happy. It’s the fact that I strive for unattainable perfection that constantly leaves me unsatisfied. I need a homegirl to come around, pick me up, and shake the body- hatin’ out of me.
Sigh. Maybe it’s the influx of Easter candy I’ve been munching on for days that has me feeling bloated and blue.
Today Danny and I SERIOUSLY played a game where we took turns closing our eyes while the we picked out jelly beans to feed each other while guessing the flavor…you’d be surprised how difficult it is to guess simple flavors like cherry without seeing or knowing what you’re about to consume. 😉
I KNOW everyone has had times where they don’t feel that their body, brains, looks, what-have you are up to par. The question is, what are some great ways to combat this?
