Today you didn’t treat yourself well. You woke up motivated but let the number on the scale effect how you approached the rest of the day. You told the instagram story today that you had gained a pound, but that’s okay because you had eaten well all week…and you knew that you gained a pound simply because you didn’t have time to exercise this week. Why didn’t you just listen to yourself? Why did you have to set yourself up for disaster?”
Today I woke up motivated, but that all changed when I stepped on the scale today. I had only gained one pound but I felt that I had failed myself. As I reviewed my week I realized that I had actually done very well, I just hadn’t had time to exercise. So me eating the amount I usually do with exercise included in my diet…,made me gain a very little amount of weight.
I should have let it roll off my back, but I didn’t. I ate a super healthy Breakfast and lunch, but then I started snacking and on my drive to the coffee shop I passed by multiple fast food joints before I finally whipped into one and gave in to my emotionally triggered binge eating.
I am not writing this to be hard on myself…but more as a reminder how it made me feel. I feel worse than when I started out today, to no one’s fault but my own. So…
Dear me, no matter what the scale says, your worth cannot be measured. Be kind to yourself even when you think you don’t deserve it. Know that you are always pushing yourself and know that if it didn’t show this week it will next week. I forgive you today, but be better to yourself. Don’t let a bump in the road turn into a hill.
