Hey, it's me!!! 💁🏽💁🏽💁🏽💁🏽(⬅️me in the summer when I am tan). And...I really want a bagel. I'm having a serious craving over here. BUT I am staying committed. I am sticking with this gluten-free lifestyle. This has nothing to do with weight loss or trying to look better....BUT does have to do with feeling better. I have blogged about this plenty of times, and you all know by now that I am supposed to be gluten-free all the time. Last weekend as I was literally in tears with stomach pain...I kept asking Eric to make sure I wouldn't eat gluten anymore. Um hello....that isn't his job. It's mine(Don't worry he reminded me that right as the words came out of my mouth). But it made me think today that like anything in life, this is something that is tough right now, but will totally benefit me in the long run. You just have to stick with it. Right? It's what I tell my students, my clients, and my class go-ers all the time. So here is my pep talk to myself and everyone else who is dealing with a tough goal, situation, or obstacle in life:
"Suck it up. You can do this. You've been through harder things (especially than withstanding a bagel). You are a rockstar. You are going to kill it".
And if you need fancier motivation. Check out the words of Nelson Mandela:
Keep on, keeping on! I promise the end result (whatever you are reaching for) is worth it! And I'm going to go try and find a good gluten-free bagel recipe! #goals
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, DOGGY-MOMMY AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
