My fitness journey over the last three years. 💪🏼
This is what I’ve learned:
—I’m an emotional eater. I don’t eat when I’m upset. I don’t eat when I’m tired. I don’t eat after I’ve had coffee.
I overeat when I’m sad. I overeat when I’m searching for comfort. I feel bad about not eating and overeating and about not making healthy choices.
The first picture is from when I first got back into the US after traveling through Asia for 18 months with poor diet, no exercise.
The two in the middle were taken right before/right after my split with my partner of almost 4 years. I actually couldn’t see how skinny I was until my aunt pulled me to the side and asked when I’d last weighed myself. 🔶
I resolved right then and there to make a change. I deserved to live in a body I loved, one that I felt comfortable in, and most importantly, one that I could move in. I missed dance like I missed oxygen and I was weak and everything hurt. 🔷
The picture on the right is from July 2017 after 7 months of weight training 5 days a week with @fitachilles
I feel the best I’ve ever felt, the strongest I’ve ever felt, and my dancer body is coming back—moves I haven’t been able to do since high school, hell even middle school, are now accessible. 🔶
Everyone deserves to love the body they’re in, to feel comfortable in their skin and to rock it, baby! 🔸
