Sure, you wanted to eat that entire box of doughnuts followed by that ice cream. And maybe a few days before, you had some pizza. Or you ate that entire candy bar and then had carbs the rest of the day. Yes, we all get those binges especially….shall I say it???!?!?! Heck, why not……if we are PMSing. Yes, that lovely time of the month where you want to punch everyone around you and just curl up with ice cream, chocolate, and pizza.
When we put the food that falls under a “thou shall not eat” category in our mouth, we have the tendency to self-loath. After one bite, we call ourselves, fat, unworthy, ugly, worthless, a failure, etc. Then, we convince ourselves that we have ruined all progress, so we should just finish the entire thing. Here is where I am going to get real with you ladies. ONE BITE will not make us FAT (insert side tangent here——–> no one IS fat. Just like a patient with heart disease IS NOT heart disease. It’s something we have. We HAVE fat. We HAVE heart disease, etc. So, we need to stop calling ourselves FAT. Ok…end side tangent).
One “bad day” will not lose all the progress we have made. One “bad month” is not an excuse to keep having “bad months” until we have a “bad year.” One decision does not define us.
Here’s the thing ladies….we are all capable of being the best that we can be. YOU…yes YOU, are capable of doing this. Maybe you need some time off to rest and figure out this whole life thing. Sure, take the time. But, DO NOT make it a habit. You are so worth becoming your best self. You are worth loving your body inside and out. You are worth loving your life. You don’t have to start with running 5 miles a day. Instead, start small. Find some form of movement that YOU LIKE. Exercise doesn’t have to kill you! Make it fun and you won’t even feel like you are working out! Once you get moving, you will realize that you are so worth it.
Girl, I said it before and I will say it again, YOU ARE WORTH IT! Tell yourself that every single freaking day. Write it in giant letters on your mirror. Keep telling yourself it every 5 minutes, even if you don’t believe it at first. After all, if you tell yourself it enough, you will end up believing it. That is the beauty of human nature. You just need to convince yourself.
So, stand up and shout it: YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!! I didn’t hear you! Say it again! YOU ARE WORTH IT!
You are worth taking on this battle, and you CAN DO IT! Take out your favorite music or audio book and get moving!
Remember that you are beautiful no matter what. You can take on this journey. Because you are so worth it. Now, go get moving girl and stop the self loathing! What are you waiting for! There is no better day than today! 🙂
