The year of loving me

2018 was the year I wanted to work on loving myself.

I have spent most of my life hating the body I was giving. I constantly judge myself next to photoshopped super models in magazines and the internet. I had a hateful relationship with food, exercise, and myself. I was not confident, I did not have love for myself, self esteem was non existent, and I had little courage that I could succeed. I wanted so desperately to change my outlook on myself, but I didn’t even know where or how to begin. So I started with the easier tasks, and I tackled my relationship with food and exercise first.

I started this journey back in 2015, and it’s been a work in progress ever since. I hated food and the way it made me feel. I was extremely lazy, only involving myself in activities that were sedentary. I stared slow and gave myself many many many opportunities to make mistakes. I realized that I needed to get back to the basics of food, and eat the rawest form of food possible. That’s literally been my diet plan since 2015. No counting calories, no meal preps, no cheat days, just consistency in choosing fruits and veggies over junk.

Exercise came because of my dog, and I thank her so much for getting me out of the house each day. I started small with physical activity, and I have yet to step foot in a gym. I have gym-timitdation so bad!! So outside is my gym, and Mother Nature helps me decide what kind of workout I’m going to get that day. I am still working on these relationship to this day. And tweeking my diet and exercise to MY needs, and that’s my advice. Don’t go by crazy diet plans or what the ‘experts’ tell you to do. Go by what feels right to YOU and your body. Listen everyday to what it’s trying to tell you, and then make the choice each day to love you!

This year is the year I work on loving my body and having some damn confidence in it. I’ve always been timid in showing off any of my accomplishments. I often worry about what other will say rather than how I feel about how I look! And I wanna change that. It’s not going to be easy but I know it’s one thing I’ve always wanted. To be confident in me
