Real Talk Installment 1: Keeping it real with you...

Real talk about COVID-19 and I'm not talking about the virus I'm talking about gaining weight...


Honestly, the COVID-19 is real, just like the freshman 15 everyone warned you about. I am definitely guilty of a lot stress, and boredom eating during quarantine. Do I feel guilty or ashamed or even disappointed that I gained 19 pounds after struggling to lose it for AN ENTIRE YEAR? Yes and no. I would be lying if I said I don't feel any of those things about gaining weight, and had rude comments slide into my DMs about it too (not joking)! But, the reality is I was doing the best I could during the time. I kept myself busy with pivoting a business, reading over 5 books, earning a new certification, building my website, and while keeping my athletes motivated and supported too. Eating was the last thing on my mind and that's why I am not going to dwell or beat myself up over the weight gain. This is a journey and there will be peaks and valleys all my life and I hope I have a long life too. I've been through episodes of eating disorders and disorderly eating, it has taken me YEARS of heard work to be here today 1) telling you and 2) not feeling bad about it too. My self worth is not a number on a scale. And neither is your self worth. You are more than a number on the scale. You are more than your eating habits. You are dong the best you can, give yourself some grace. But, I am going to quit being an asshole to myself too. Because I feel like shit, and I know I'll feel better if I quit eating like an asshole and probably should eat those veggies I tell myself I will every week I buy them. LOL. Give yourself grace but love your self to eat your veggies too! If you recognize the you need to taper your stress eating like me, this is a great article to read!
