As most of you might know, I am trying to fully recover from an ED and find a healthy way to live both physically and mentally. I am learning new things every day throughout this process. There are times when I fall into a pit of negativity or as Crazy says, down the rabbit hole.
These past few months I put on weight, didn’t work out because I had no motivation and my mental health wasn’t the best overall. That is the reason why I decided to take things into my own hands. I got time now and I don’t have to worry about school anymore. I am basically creating a routine that I could stick to alter on as well. I truly think that if it weren’t for my broken leg, I would have continued my journey easily. But that is not how it happened. I think it is really about how many times you can bounce back into your routines. Because you will have setbacks.
What I learned is that you gotta think like you are already where you want to be. You should eat for the body you want to have and not for the one you have now. Which basically means just that you motivate yourself to get where you want to be. It doesn’t matter what your weight is or how you look now. You should accept your starting point and think positively. Every time you make a healthier choice, every minute of working out…all of it counts because it gets you closer to your goal. And here is the thing, don’t take it as a diet. It has to be a permanent change, one that you will be able to keep doing possibly for the rest fo your life because once you reach that goals, you will want to mantain it. And that doesn’t work with your old ways of eating.
So those are my tips. We can do this together. I’ll update you. One of my main mottos is that It doesn’t matter how long it takes, I want to get there. Enjoy the journey.
