I’ve been thinking a lot over the past two weeks about the thorny balance between self-love and resolutions involving health and fitness. I actually planned to write a big post about this last Wednesday and then I just couldn’t find the right words, hence the very late and rambling post today!
This is such a personal topic to me because I struggled hard to find this balance throughout my twenties. I went back and forth through various phases of following strict diet and exercise plans and getting super-fit; to feeling defeated by punishing programs and vowing to love myself more and not hate my body; and then right back to square one. Things didn’t really crystallize for me until very recently, when I started to understand how self-love, self-care and personal health are all connected.
