I’ve been working on eating healthier meals and working out like so many other pp mom’s trying to get our bodies back how they were after having babies.
I struggled with going too hard and ended up pulling a muscle in my back. I tried to just be more careful and continued to workout. One day as I was sitting at work I knew my back was in bad shape and I couldn’t continue in my current trajectory.
I also had an appointment to get a mole removed my armpit which I was going to use as a break to heal my back.
Doing my best to still eat nutritarian has become increasingly difficult. My 80/20 rule became more 60/40. Friends around me we’re counting points and calories. It’s taken every ounce of strength to not start tracking my food and cutting calories. I vowed to not do that again.
This is when it gets hard: I’ve hit a plateau and haven’t lost any weight in 6 weeks. My eating has tanked since there are a plethora of sweets at work and home. I’ve gotten into beers to chill me out (holiday/work/money stress) which let’s me real are unnecessary calories.
I’m very torn among several things.
WORKING OUT HARDER
NOT EATING ENOUGH
EATING TOO MUCH
BODY POSITIVITY (fuck all the above)
I’m waiting to read Body Positive Power by Megan Jayne Crabbe. I follow her on Instagram and honestly she’s so inspirational. I can’t wait to learn more about what she’s about.
In the meantime, I’d just like to feel good, fit in my old clothes and not worry about what I eat. I like working out to be strong.
