Depression. Anxiety. Emotional Eating.
Body Dysmorphia. Doubt. Insecurity.
It’s hard to explain. It’s hard to understand. It’s hard to experience. It’s hard to help.
Whether its glueing on my smile at work or false laughter with my sisterfriends… recently I’ve been struggling. Some days are easier than others….other days are harder than most * *
I truly believe food is medicine….. and with every bite we are either curing or creating a disease. After researching for days I discovered that food has a DIRECT effect on emotions and hormones. I found that the majority of foods I eat are loaded with sugars and harmful preservatives. Between artificial flavoring, processed meats and sketchy additives….a lot of the foods I consumed on a daily basis were not even classified as food! (BTW: The food industry is riddled with liars and scam artist. It’s sickening 😡) Anywayzzz…. In efforts to regulate my mood and cleanse all the yucky stuff in my body I decided to go on a 21 day vegan & no added sugars detox. So I hit up my juice boo @HollyinPics and purchased 14 of her “mmm mmm good - does the body justttt right” juices. Today is day 11.
Like most good things in life… It hasn’t been easy. All I want is a blue cheese barbeque burger, cheesy mac and cheese (can you tell I love cheese? 😂FYI I am severely lactose intolerant, but the pain is sooo worth it), apple pie and mint chocolate chip ice cream🤤. To be honest - delicious foods definitely make me smile and feel G-O-O-D in that moment but I know in the long term it only A. does more harm and B. Doesn’t fix anything * *
Emotional stability is a cross we all carry. It’s a tough journey. Just know...You’re strong. You’re Capable. You’re not crazy...and You are not alone. Keep on keeping on….God got you.You got this. Love you💋
