I’m a firm believer that you get what you work for. Life isn’t easy. Reaching our goals, and dreams isn’t easy. If it was easy nobody would set goals. Nobody would have anything to work for.
(Insert trigger warning. This is fully PRO RECOVERY but if your deep into any eating issues take this with caution.)
What am I getting at here? As I finally opened up on the blog about, I’ve been working on recovery lately. Honestly I think I’ve been doing really good. I’m eating consistently, 6-7 times per day. Choosing a mix between carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. And, no, I’m not counting broccoli as a carb. Been there, done that. While technically it is a carb if I’m serious about getting my health back I just can’t do that. The amount of broccoli I’d need to consume is probably not humanly possible.
Saw my primary doctor today, all was good until a minor freak out on her part with my weight being substantially lower than the last appointment (not saying how long ago on purpose here!) Anyways I’m xx and need to be xxx before I can even think about getting back into the gym. I’m A’OK with this. Remember, I’m short… so don’t go comparing.
I want my health. I want to feel good inside. I’ve damaged my body and it deserves love, care, and respect from here on out. Our bodies are machines and I’ve got to start looking at mine like one.
Need my coffee. Really happy my stomach has been a bit more tolerable.
Polished off a jar of Trader Joe’s raw creamy unsalted almond butter. Noms.
Oh, what’s this? Dark chocolate pb cup… fear food. Yes getting in the calories. I may or may not have done this just to get over a new calorie hurdle. It worked. I don’t particularly think one should eat pb cups to reach calories, but once in a while it’s A’OK!!!! They were tasty, fyi. Go buy some. Justin’s is where it’s at.
So as you can see I’m working on it. It’s a process, a long process. I’m healing. I’m happier and I’m smiling, it’s a good feeling. I’ve got to work harder to gain my health back and I accepted this fact today with my doctor. I’m ready to beat this once and for all. I’m ready to win. Let’s do this. Do work.
Thank you all for your wonderful support, xo.
Ever tried Justin’s pb cups? Holy heck tasty right?
