I’m not even going to try to sugar coat it. I have let all the stress of what’s going on right now get to me. I have succumbed to emotional eating and drinking. I have fallen into old habits and it’s time to STOP!
We are ALL dealing with these uncertain times in our own way. We can choose to go numb, binge on Netflix, drown our pain in alcohol, find comfort in food, wear sweatpants (or yoga pants) every day, and come out of this time blaming COVID-19 for losing our way, or health and ourselves.
OR we can choose to take CONTROL. Take ACTION. Be GRATEFUL. Count our BLESSINGS. Find the silver lining! .
I have had enough! I had my 2.5-week pity party (you may not have seen it) and I am DONE! I am not letting this define me or take over my emotions anymore! Today I woke up and decided enough is enough. For those of you who know me, know I have a constant struggle with my nutrition. I do not lack motivation to workout. I lack discipline with nutrition. I stress and emotional eat and drink. And when I find myself drinking more, I find myself eating even more – you know, numbing that pain! And when I let it go for a few days, I have a hard time reigning it back in. .
That STOPS today! No more numbing with alcohol and food!
So, who’s with me?! Who’s ready to STOP numbing how we feel with food and alcohol? Who’s ready to join me in being mindful of how we are FUELING our bodies during this time of crisis? Who’s ready to come out of this stronger and healthier? Who’s going to say NO to #quarantine15 with me???
