I started educating myself about fitness and nutrition about 3 years ago, and even then, I have experienced many highs and lows.
In the past, I have weighed so much less than I have now, constantly counting calories, eating low carb, weighing everyday. You name the diet, I will have tried it, and those “diets’ only lasted for a few months. I have learnt to just do half hour of training each day, whether it be putting on my running shoes, or doing a HIIT workout at home.
I’m still on a journey, no where near the goal that I want to be at, but I have learnt to embrace who I am and give myself a bit of self love. No longer am I hard on myself if I miss a training session or if I decide to have a few gins and a slice of cake.
Life is for living. We can be so critical and judgemental of ourselves, that we end up trying to be someone else and losing the true value of having our own identities.
