Like this Bean (@) I am going to take a break. Im taking a step back from insta because I'm not in a place where it's doing much for me at the moment from a fodmap/ IBS perspective. I've got lots going on with work/ life / other health problems, which means my life isn't very gram ready at the moment. My food is functional, not necessarily 'healthy', often just assembled in five minutes, but it's plain and comforting. I haven't exercised in a month aside from walking and I really don't want to. I'm v. tired and just prioritising things that I want to achieve each day. Exercise is a great thing for me and I love it, but I don't feel the desire to do it right now. And you know what? That's ok! A couple of months of not-the-most-active and not-the-most-vegetables is EXACTLY what I need right now, to get through and reach my goals. .
But Instagram doesnt agree, I feel that every time I open it recently it's full of people pushing to get active because it's so! Good! for! you! And to 'get back on it' with eating. Which is fine, it works for most people. But I just don't feel that I'm 'off' any wagon by not doing these things. But if it's all I see all day it just makes me feel guilty like I should be doing more and trying harder... Really, all I want to do right now is rest, work, and see my friends and not feel guilty about that. I might put on weight, or loose muscle or strength, but I just don't care?? I certainly am not going to do any damage to my mental and physical health by just pressing pause. Not sure what I was doing with this post but I hope anyone who's reading has a really great rest of the week xxxxx
