I always wanted to be the kind of person who had a morning routine. You know, wake up slow, grab some green juice and make a big breakfast. Basically Iw anted to be a stock image found online or a Reece Witherspoon movie.
If you could hate yourself small,/thin you'd probably be there a thousand times over now, right?
I know it sounds like it makes logical sense. If you're so upset with yourself and disappointed, that should be able to fire you through the diet so you can get through it and be smaller, right?
Cooper is going to kindergarten and I'm feeling things I didn't think I would feel #truth.
It's making me ask all of these big questions and feel all of these really big things. Like:
Recently I asked a bunch of women I admire, 'what does self love look like to you?'.
You are continuously being told to love your body, but the ways in which you could go about doing it can kind of seem confusing, time consuming, or don't really mesh with your vibes, and what you need, right?
You're wondering, how does she eat that, and look the way she does? You're literally perplexed because you thought that donuts were 'bad'. Yet this coach is saying things like balance, and you feel like okay, maybe I could eat a donut too.
You don't need to be told how to love yourself one more time, you need to know how. But you're over bathbombs and mani-pedi's seem like such a hassle to go through. Sure you like your nails painted, but is it really doing anything for the way you feel inside? For some it may be. But for you, not so much.
You get your new meal plan, and you're so excited! You feel like "YES! This is the time it will work!".
You see a bunch of green things and a lot of protein, you think this will for sure be an adjustment. But, you feel up to the challenge.
You're a grown ass woman, who is trying to adult in a way that feels authentic to you. You're just trying to fold the fitted bed sheet like your mom does, get to work on time and figure out if you should be eating the egg whites or the whole egg for ultimate gains (correct answer: the whole damn thing!).
I had been begging my dad "please let me get my hair done!!". No, he easily said to his 11 year old daughter. I was devastated.
But, as luck would have it, on my 12th birthday he took me to get my hair done as a surprise. "You only have to do this once right?" I told him yes of course, only one time and then it's there forever.
We got home, I changed my pants and I asked my ex-husband if we could go get a pie. “We should celebrate the day!” I said. This is how I manipulated the situation so he didn’t think my ‘food issues’ were coming back again. If I seemed happy about it, he didn’t question me. He said no though. Excuse me what? But why? Please, let’s go, I said.
