✖️Let exercise be your stress relief not food.✖️ For years when I was stressed, overwhelmed, sad, or depressed food was my comfort. I would over indulge in things that weren't the best for me. All that processed food was causing havoc on my insides and that in turn was causing more stress, ER visits, medication and didn't say more stress.
At 180lbs I still remember stepping on the scale, crying, feeling like I was trapped. Trapped in a body and mind that seemed so foreign. I knew that wasn't me. I could continue to live that life. So working out and movement became my go to. -70lbs later, and I'm grateful for being that trapped girl. Because this Me, looking in the mirror wouldn't be here.
Over the past year I have allowed myself to forget how much I need fitness in my life. It allows me to push past my mental limitations, it helps me relieve stress, it helps me know that I'm in control of my growth.
I may not be in the fitness business any longer but that doesn't mean I don't recognize it's importance.
I'm a mom. I'm a wife. I'm a business owner. I'm a survivor. I am someone who lifts others up. I am remembering what keeps me focus and sane so I can do all the things I was intended to do in this life. I can do hard things and so can you! •side note, I was able to increase my weights during my leg workout, get through more sets and I broke into such a crazy sweat my shirt was soaked. F*cking Amazing feeling!!! Definitely what was needed.
