Share Your Story

So here we are, it’s summertime.  I failed on getting the beach body I wanted, no surprise though.  Stress and emotional eating will get me every time.  Nobody really needs to understand my story, because we all have our own.  The important part is that I’m trying to be good to myself…I’m trying to get back to where I was.  It’s hard, and some days seem harder than others.

I did make a half gallon of kombucha.  It should be done in a few days, but I probably won’t do a second fermentation.  I’ve also been doing a cleanse…hopefully, break my sugar/bad eating habit, and get back into my paleo ways.  Some days I’m so mentally ready, but then I lose steam and get lazy.  I see all these fitness people on Instagram, and wonder where they get their inspiration.  I wish I could trade my addiction to food for an addiction to working out.  Maybe I can get hypnotized!!  haha.  But seriously, how do we pick up such horrible habits?  Why can’t we break them even if we know they are bad for us?  I already feel stressed, but then I eat and I feel stressed about it.  So why do we want to torture ourselves?  I’m not even sure.

I hope that for anyone out there, you can read my story and get some peace that you’re not alone.  Everyone should share their story.

“When we share our stories, what it does is opens up our hearts for other people
to share their stories.  And it gives us the sense that we are not alone on this journey.”
