The feeling when you can make comparisons between then & now. Its about embracing the fact that you are allowed to give your mahi some treats, but keeping in mind where youre heading. Ive definitely been giving my mahi the treats, not just food but also to enjoy resting, recovering and growing without allowing too much stress/over working to have a strain on me. Embrace your progress
Three stages of life:
2.Wtf is this...
Today I don't want to train. Or I do, but I'm tired, exhausted really, and my rest days have gone out the window with my teacher training.
And then I put these two pictures side by side and I realised that I am not the girl on the left anymore.
I am not the girl who has to reach 25000 steps a day and cycle for two hours a night and restrict my calories if I dare miss my exercise goals.
I am not her.
I am the woman who exercises because it's good for me, it makes me happy and helps clear my mind.
I am the woman who has goals that are no longer defined by the number on the scale.
I am the woman who eats take out and sandwiches and all the things that the girl I used to be was terrified of.
And then I realised that I am no longer a girl who has to exercise everyday so why am I feeling the pressure to do so this morning?
I am not her.
So I refuse to push myself to workout today because what will it achieve?
Resting is healthy. It allows my body to repair, it allows my mind to cool, it allows me to let go of the pressures I placed upon myself for so long.
So today I'm resting. #recovery#eatingdisorderrecovery#fitnessjourney#fitfam#weightgain#anorexiarecovery#fitness#fitnesslife
