Confessions of a Vegan Chef and Holistic Enthusiast
So here it is 2019 and I have a big confession to share. I have been battling this for quite some time and I think before you can make a change you have to admit that you have a problem or admit you need help to make that change. For the past year and a half I have been smiling on the outside and crying on the inside. I have been very unhappy about the way I feel and look.
After being on steroids because of medical issues awhile back, I gained weight. I felt ok then but when my efforts to lose the weight failed (ok, ok, I have to admit I tried but I really didn’t put my all into it, yes, my fault) I became even more down on myself and began to binge eat, and gaining more weight which made me even more depressed and there starts the vicious cycle. I hate going places because I hate the way I look in clothes and I feel like I’m being judged, when I am the BIGGEST judge of them all.
I am posting about this because I need to let it all go and do myself a favor and to allow myself to be transparent. Here I am “still” a certified group fitness instructor, vegan chef, meal prep for people and can guide them to living a healthy holistic lifestyle and I cannot do it for myself.
Every day I say I will start tomorrow and tomorrow comes and goes, well today I confess that I can no longer keep saying tomorrow is the day. TODAY IS THE DAY and for me this is the first step to leading a healthier lifestyle, mind, body and spirit.
I have designed a 21 Day Back To Life Challenge for myself. I literally have used the tools from my studying to become a holistic nutritionist on myself and developed a plan. So I am praying and asking that you ALL be my accountability partners and root for a sista on her way back to LOVING ME again.
I will be sharing the good, the bad and the ugly of it all. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this and keeping me lifted up.
