Get Back Up!

22 Jul


When life knocks you down, like really really knocks you down, it can be one of the hardest things to get back up again. Especially after you have fallen so many times before. I recently went through a rough patch which left me quite literally on my ass, sprawled across the carpet wondering why my life had to be such a Bitch. I find that when I am struggling with stress and emotional issues, my health and fitness goals seem to come to a screeching halt. It suddenly becomes really hard to resist that initial 1 little chocolate cupcake, that turns into 3 or just saying screw it, and diving headfirst into a cheese covered, pepperoni smothered pizza. Yes this is not Paleo, in fact I call this Faileo and of course I am going to feel even worse after consumption but what the hell. My point to all of this rambling is this, yes life can be and will be hard, there is no doubt about that. You may end up with a night in your life or hell even an entire weekend full of booze and doughnuts but that is OKAY. What matters is who you decide to be and what direction you go after you have been dealt a rough hand. I realized the day after my incredibly crappy day that I did not have time to sit around and feel sorry for myself. So life sucks sometimes, and you shoved your face with sweets to console yourself. Well…get up and move on. Do not look back and feel guilty, move forward and keep fighting. You will get knocked down a lot in life, but it is what you decide to do after you are down that matters! Even if if takes you a day or two or three…to get back up, you can always GET BACK UP!!!
