Studying + work + studying + sanity check + repeat. This has been my life for the past semester, and it’s getting down to the nitty gritty time. Big finals #mood. 🙃
I have a history of getting REALLY really frustrating with myself if I’m not routinely practicing healthy habits: going to the gym, eating healthy, self-care nights. And I am currently 100% not in my best form. I look nowhere near where I like to physically be, for MY body. My gut isn’t as happy as usual. I literally am sick with a cold/sinus infection/whatever, because ya girl is not on top of life right now. 👍🏼🙂 BUT, the other day I had to sit down with myself and have a mental chat.
It’s okay for me to not be shredded.
It’s okay for me to not have a 💯 diet.
It’s okay to have this time where I am not able to prioritize everything I want to.
School has to be my #1 priority.
So here we are, mid hell-week, and I have accepted in my mind that I am partaking in a mini, not clean, bulk. Is that what it is? No. Do I know this? Yes. Does it help me get through this time? Absolutely.
I’m the heaviest I’ve been in a LONG time. My gut is having a reset thanks to my antibiotics (not the good kind of reset). BUT, I know the day after finals I will be back in the game. This summer I get to reprioritize and reorganize my life, and begin again next semester. 💥
So long story short, my advice to you is to accept that life does not go how you want it to all of the time, and you’ve just got to roll with the punches and not blame yourself. 😌
