This is where I'm supposed to talk about "How amazing it feels to stay on track and not let Friday mentality" of pizza, chips n' salsa and an ice cold beer take over my healthy eating plan. 💥💥Well, I'M NOT 💥💥 Some days this just plain ole sucks. Lean ground turkey and Brussel sprouts isn't a meal I wanted tonight.
I weighed 322 lbs 3.5 years ago and lost 150 lbs and STILL love Friday pizza and beer night. I still love endless chips n' salsa from chilis while downing a margarita with my girlfriends. I STILL love going out for ice cream after dinner with my 7 year old.
I'm not going to sit here and pretend that just because I lost the weight or the fact that I own my own fitness studio, or train hundreds online that "this is easy for me"
For some people it's easy, and that's great. Some people will respond with "that's looks good!" (And it does) or "ewww why would you want to eat pizza and chips!" However If you've never been addicted to food, struggled with binge eating or an unhealthy relationship with food you may never truly understand the struggle of "the choice." This is a choice I make every day.
Every morning I wake up.
Every meal I make or decide what to eat.
Every exercise I do.
It's my choice. I want you to know if you've ever struggled with what I have, you can do this.
I am no different than you, because we all have that power to make a choice for ourselves. Every meal, every workout, every day.
The feeling of "missing out" or that true "dwelling" feeling does go away, with time...and the feeling of accomplishment, empowerment and come on, who DOESN'T like to slip on a pair of jeans and look sexy in?! You. Got. This.
