The greatest and most difficult thing about writing this blog has been being completely open and honest about my life.
It’s great because I get to share with you my accomplishments and new successes. However, it’s not always so easy when I have to be open about the ugly stuff…
The reason why I have not posted anything all day long is because I’ve really been struggling with what happened last night.
Last night, I ate way beyond the point of fullness and totally spiralled into a mental mess of guilt, anger and fear. All of these emotions stuck with me for this entire day and it’s almost been impossible to imagine continuing with this blog when I feel like such a hypocrite. (I took photos of almost everything, but it’s just way too hard to post them all).
Anyhow, instead of elaborating on these awful emotions, I want to try and extract every ounce of positivity that I can from my slip up… Because honestly, if I can’t learn from my mistakes, then I’m not growing as a person at all.
So what do I take away from yet another slip-up?
1) I understand that the journey to a healthy relationship with food is not easy. I will have fantastic days and difficult days, but I must embrace each one and learn from it.
2) Balancing a healthy lifestyle with an incredibly demanding college program is not easy. I have to acknowledge that on a daily basis and congratulate myself for making a real attempt at changing my habits.
3) You never fail until you truly give up. And I will never give up.
I will not let a setback tell me that my hopes for the future are unachievable.
