That would never happen to me because I was convinced that the only solution for me was to starve myself and live at the gym. I didn't want that kind of life. It stressed me out a lot just from the preview. It really wasn't my thing to be a super fitness-oriented person because it always felt like I had to address everything all at once. For example, I discovered I don't really like working out in groups. I had a hard time relaxing around others when I tried yoga in the past. I would often be judging myself so harshly that I was projecting my insecurities onto the other people in the room. Pretty soon I was convinced everyone thought I was a fat piece of crap and that I should just give up and go home. Rational Alicia knows this was not at all the case, and more than likely everyone was also thinking about themselves, or you know, actually relaxing and doing yoga. I still have a hard time getting past my own judgements. Even though I'm doing it alone.
So, I want to start doing something to share even more about what I've been doing to continue to practicing a healthy lifestyle and many things are up in the air as far as what to do and how to do it that is most accessible to anyone interested. I am so pumped to think there are folks out there who want to give the clean eating thing a try. It's really a lot easier than it seems, and we learned a ton of things along the way that helped us develop into what we do now. Even still it is changing depending on what we learn from our current habits.
More to come on that soon! For now, please enjoy this comparison that shows the progress I've made between my 30th birthday and my 33rd (which is in one more day; woo!!!)
Have a fabulous, wonderful, fabulous evening!
