Let me be real with you all. Most of you didn't know this, but binge eating and yoyo exercising is what I used to know myself for. I overcame both things after I had entered this world of coaching, but there are times that I still struggle. I NEVER want to fake perfection or hide the issues I struggle with from you so I wanted to share this:
I had an amazing day for the most part. I got my workout in, I had a healthy breakfast and lunch, and I was happy, but late afternoon, I craved a bunch of different foods, and I gave in. I ate way too much. I felt sick. I looked in the mirror and became upset. I became mad. I had no idea why I gave in, and I had no idea why my old ways kicked in. I haven't had a negative mindset like today in a very long time.
I prayed to the Lord, and I sat for a moment thinking about how I could make things better for tomorrow. How to not let my negative mindset take over how I felt.
When I sat to read my Bible, the verse 1 Samuel 16:7 spoke to me. Jesus wants us to take our eyes off of ourselves. He wants us to turn our eyes back to Him. WE were made to reflect His image, and He doesn't want us to perfect our own. Tonight I am resting in who He says I am instead of who the mirror says I am, and I would love if you chose to do this with me. 💜
