eating is such a workout

I changed my blogs totle

The time to get healthy is now.
I am recovering. I am eating well. I am enjoying the process of becoming stronger when I workout. I have more energy. I don’t think about food all the time. I have fun preparing beautiful vegan dishes that will nourish my body.
I used to dread going out to eat, going to social events, going to the bar. All I thought about were calories. I was miserable.
I don’t know what sparked my change of mindset but I am now so much happier maintaining this weight and eating well than I ever was trying to get as thin as possible. I want to be fit.
PLEASE SEEK HELP. it’s not too late. Your disorder is REAL. Recovery is better than this isolated life you’re living. Please get help babes xx

Remember that results take time. Like learning how to wear makeup, it’ll take you awhile to find what makeup looks best on you, and how to wear makeup but after awhile you find a good routine and you start looking the best. Just like working out. You won't see the results you want right away, but soon enough if you keep trying and practicing you will start seeing the body that you have been dreaming of.

One week apart.
6 days of workouts.
More water. Less sugary drinks.
Feeling less bloated.

Still working on finding foods I’ll enjoy that are actually healthy for me without doing a complete 180° on my normal eating habits. Trying to ease into it and enjoy it.

Goals are being met, delicious food is being prepared, and lots of memories are being created. I’m so excited to be on this new journey I designed for myself, and I’m so grateful for all the fitblrs I have followed that help motivate me to love my body and to work out and manage emotional eating. You guys help me grow. I love seeing everyone’s workouts and progress and meals, it just makes me so happy! Thank you for being you, everyone!

One of the workouts I’ve been doing for my midsection. Try it out!

Week 4

It’s officially been one month!!! Did my weigh in today and I’m about 10-12lbs down from my starting (depending on which weight I use) and down about 7% body fat!!!! I was gonna take/post progress pics but I have no really good before pics that aren’t at a weird angle. But I was super excited because I didn’t think I’d hit my one month goal (which was 10lbs) but I smashed it (even lost a tiny bit more)!!!!
