Would you rather…
Have your dream body but still be consumed with negative thoughts, guilt and obsessions over food and fitness?
Be as you are and be blissfully happy, having a healthy relationship with food and fitness?
If you chose the first option, you need to realize that while you may feel having your dream body would be the solution to all your problems, if you are still consumed with these same disorders thoughts, you will never appreciate your body, in any way, shape or form.
By reaching a healthy positive relationship with how you feel about your body and overall being, the self love will surely follow. Binging, purging, restricting…all of that will slowly subside and life will no longer revolve around thoughts of self hate and guilt.
You will eventually experience pure happiness again.
There is no quick fix to these sorts of things. Reaching a healthy mindset can take months, even years. And you will surely have ups and downs. However, these ups and downs will be minimal compared to trying to live your life consumed with disordered thoughts.
It won’t be easy and it won’t be quick, but I promise that it will be worth it.
Regardless of if you reach your ultimate goal body, without a healthy relationship and mindset with fitness and food…
You will never be truly happy.
It’s not about following a plan
Or sticking to a diet
Or loosing weight
It’s not about having a six pack
Or toned legs
Or reaching a new PR
It’s not about how you look
Or what others think
Or what the photos show
It is about having a healthy, balanced mindset with food and fitness and loving yourself for who you are at this exact point in time…not who you will be once you reach your goal.
Haven’t worn makeup or done my hair in like 4 days
Been working out a ton
Eating super clean
Spending my mornings at the gym, days skateboarding or biking to the beach and afternoons back at the gym
Absolutely love this lifestyle :)
5:30am Spin Class
What’s is sleep anyway?
Let’s do this!
Food is fuel
Fuel is energy
Energy is then used in workouts
So in the grand scheme of things…
Eating food is a workout?
Sounds good to me!
Time to get spaghetti swole! Pow!
hanging out with my little cousins made me realize how blissfully happy the soul is before it is subject to the feelings of being self conscious.
Laughing at all my post from last night
You know what is amazing
That somewhere in the world, you’re perfect mate is just wandering around living life. And upon a series of random (but yet somehow planned) occurrences, you will meet each other, fall in love, and start a life together?
And that all the broken hearts and confusion we go through is just so we will know how powerful true love really is by being able to compare it to the relationships we naively once thought were love.
Somewhere out there is someone for each of us. And fate has it all planned out.
…now if fate can just make this occur a little sooner, that’d be great because it’s summer and I’d love to be loved
This is probably the most fun I’ve ever had on tumblr
And I’m literally just documenting my thoughts for the public
While probably clogging a ton of dashboards
Lolz oh well
There are moments where I regret ever making a tumblr.
And then you realize you would have never met me and that moment fades
Officially lost a follower
I was waiting for that
…sorry I didn’t post my oatmeal today
My rambles are obviously not up to par with my vegan posts…proofs in the pudding (vegan pudding that is!)
I have never watched Super Natural
…like really though
ooh stop it you!
…yep that just happened
You know what? Sometimes you just got to compliment yourself and boost that self esteem of yours! Look in that mirror and tell yourself you rock!
No shame folks. No shame
