Vulnerable real talk: I woke up yesterday morning feeling a little down on mysel…

Written by

Vulnerable real talk: I woke up yesterday morning feeling a little down on myself about indulging too much over the weekend. I honestly haven’t had these sort of feelings creep up since embracing a intuitive eating, habits-based approach to health during the process of healing from hypothalamic amenorrhea. And it felt pretty awful.
.
I wasn’t going to share because as a health coach I should have all this stuff figured out (right?) BUT I don’t think food guilt is talked about enough. It’s a real thing and it’s something that affects a lot of women – especially those of us who have a history of dieting, are currently trying to lose weight or health-focused. At some points you feel like you’re totally over feeling guilty about what you eat, but occasionlly the feelings creep back in — like what happened to me after this weekend.
.
Luckily these days I can recognize the negative feelings and choose to focus on the postive (I had an amazing weekend celebrating my BF) and move on rather than feeling like I have to restrict myself to reverse the “damage” I did. 🙅🏻‍♀️
.
Yes, I might be a bit bloated and feeling a bit heavy, but I know that my body will balance out pretty quickly. My plan for the next few days is to get more sleep 🛏, drink plenty of water 💦, drink a little ACV each morning 🍎, eat my one #saladeveryday 🥗 and get back to my regular workout routine. 💪🏼Just simple, healthy habits that make me feel my best! Cheers to a positive mindset and a balanced approach to healthy living. ✨💃🏻💯

  • Thanks for sharing about this!! It’s so true that we all feel that guilt at times and it can be hard to push ourselves to stay positive. I’ve been too hard on myself at times for sure!

  • Wow this was so me a few days ago too!!! Felt a bit down at first for feeling bloated after overindulging for my mother-in-law’s birthday even though it was on healthy treats and snacks!! No use beating ourselves up, when 99% of the time we eat clean and work out! Thank you for this post and your honesty! ❤
