I am hoping with more self care that i will lower my cortisol hormones. Twelve year’s ago when i had my breakdown, from allowing life to get the better of me, i put on nearly twenty, i kid you not! twenty freaking kilos on in less than three months.
I went from being from being a healthy active woman who was only about fifty eight kilos to a seventy eight kilo crying always tired woman. My self esteem and my ego took a bashing, and i allowed negatively to enter my head.
I am now on the road to recovery. Like anyone in recovery i am very well aware that i could encounter a trigger that puts me back at the start again. Learning to recognize the triggers and how to make them in to positive encounters, hinges on positive thinking.
Recovery is about not being to hard on yourself. Its about allowing yourself to grow as a person, to shed your old skin and thinking like an onion.
Today i practiced slowing down my thoughts, i practiced self care of my feelings and because of that i had a great day. I was able to face everything thrown at me without even flinching.
Did all of this help with my healthy eating? A little bit. I am conscience of it everyday, it like everything else is a work in progress. 😏😁
Tomorrow my tasks will be,
1. No coffee ( i read today that increased coffee intake can help to keep producing the cortisol hormone) i am determinded to find my healthy self again.
2. Practice patience when faced with a situation that doesnt suit me.
3. Smile so big that everyone smiles with me.
Everyday is a step to a better life, a life where i don’t feel the need to Procrastinate.
