guilt, shame and feeling fat

I just returned from an epic 10 day vacay… gambled 🎲 some, drank 🍷 more than ever, ate out 🥘 multiple times per day, shopped 👖 a lot, got my hair 💁🏽‍♀️blowed out often 😝, exercised daily  🏋🏽‍♀️. So fun! 

I remember a time, not too long ago, where an experience like this would have never happened. 

Engaging in such “reckless” and “undisciplined” behavior would have left me feeling guilty, shameful, feeling lazy, fat, spending at least 2 hours of each vacay day in the hotel gym. 

Shit, I’m glad those days are over. 

But I know some of you out there deal with this same anxiety – when food and fitness can’t be controlled in the manner you are used to.

So, how do you overcome that?

TBH, I don’t have all the answers. I have trained enough ladies including myself to know this to be true: 

Change of any kind:

requires time. 

requires giving yourself grace.

requires consistency. 

requires tenacity.

requires patience. 

And ALL OF THAT ☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾 never changes no matter your goal (fat loss, performance, work related, a financial, a mindset…) 

You see, there isn’t any magic bullet. There isn’t any secret formula or blueprint yet to be discovered. 

There’s just taking action. Doing the thing. Getting shit done. When you feel like it and when you don’t feel like it. 

If you can’t enjoy yourself because food and fitness is zapping the life out of you, then maybe it’s time to ask for some support. I’m here for ya, anytime. Feel free to hit me up in my DMs 🤗 if you want to vent!
