I am currently a college student searching for right path in school, in life, and essentially stressing over anything else you can stress about.
Like most other girls I’ve encountered, I have struggled with body image and eating for far too long. I won’t waste time on the details, but things became pretty dark for awhile. It came to the point where exercise, calories and weight consumed my thoughts at every moment. With my mind and body running around all day, I was constantly exhausted hardly having energy to even hangout with family or friends.
I let myself believe the silly diet fads were the secret to staying thin and healthy. I avoided carbs like the plague and would only let myself eat at certain times during the day regardless of how hungry I was.
Eventually I came out of that darkness in time to realize that food wasn’t the enemy, in fact it was a weapon. Surrounding myself with positivity and pushing away destructive thoughts, I found myself able to see things clearly. No longer depriving myself of certain things, I began to embrace all types of foods instead of running away from them. This is when I realized my passion for “real food”- or food that is as whole as possible made with natural ingredients.
When you eat good, you feel good. Eating more, eating wholesome and most importantly having balance, has given me outcomes that would have NEVER been possible had I continued with my old habits. Fitness is also a huge part of my life, a part of my life that wouldn’t be possible without adequate nutrition!
Sooo now I’m here, writing a fitness and nutrition blog, still learning and growing. Though I’ve come a long way from the harder times, I’m still on my journey to the best me.
So cheers to positivity, to self love, to health, to wellness
~Hope you enjoy~
