Get Off The Wagon.

I fell off the wagon again.
It’s pretty common for me.
Ups and downs, highs and lows, good and bad…it’s a stupid cycle.
It’s kinda negative too.
I feel amazing when I’m 100% on track, but when I fall off track I get discouraged. The damaging self-talk begins, the struggle to binge meets me every time I open the fridge, and my body image begins to deteriorate…
SO – I’ve decided, I will not be getting back ON the wagon.
I will walk this trail at my own pace. If I’m setting the pace, I simply cannot fail.
It’s SO easy to compare your journey to those of others…but you know what? Unless you live with and have an up-close-and-personal relationship with them – you don’t see the REAL journey.
You see the highlights –the things they want you to see.
You don’t see them stand in the mirror and hate what they see.
You don’t see them eat a pizza.
You don’t hear about them skipping a couple days at the gym.
You don’t hear about how bad they WANT to stay home…that they’re not hungry for the iron every single day.
BUT – I GURANTEE you they are.
We are all human.
We all struggle with the same things. Getting healthy and staying fit and active is HARD WORK, but it’s hard work that’s absolutely worth it.
Progress is progress – as long as you’re moving forward, that’s all that matters.
It may take you TEN years to reach your goal, but you’re going to reach it as long as you never quit believing that you can.
I believe in you.
You’re worth the work…don’t tell yourself otherwise.
So, jump off the wagon with me and let’s walk this trail together!
xoxo
