why exercise and diet can sometimes be bad for you

For a good chunk of my 20s and 30s, I lived with severe refractory #ulcerativecolitis. And all that time, I thought I was doing an excellent job of faking it.

My clients and those close to me knew better. I spent far too long putting being sick “on hold” until my stomach disease told me what was really up (I have no control over anything).

I was stuck in this murky water of exercise and diet for “health” and doing too much of these “good” things that were actually causing me more harm than good. 

But I was too in it to see it. I was too bothered trying to hit that number on the scale, trying to PR at triathlon races; trying to maintain this body shape I had in my head. And I always always rationalized my sickness away (in my mind) with this:

E̴x̴e̴r̴c̴i̴s̴e̴ ̴a̴n̴d̴ ̴d̴i̴e̴t̴i̴n̴g̴ ̴a̴r̴e̴ ̴g̴o̴o̴d̴ ̴f̴o̴r̴ ̴y̴o̴u̴,̴ ̴n̴o̴t̴ ̴b̴a̴d̴!̴

I guess you could say I was at the other end of the food fitness extreme – I did too much of what most ladies I encounter do too little of (diet and exercise). Either way, either “version” led to being not healthy after all.
