It went from silence - pretending everything is wonderful all the time - to a few refreshing things here and there about what life is really like.
Now, we've travelled to the other side. The point where it seems cool to talk about how badly you're doing.
Went for a run today and cleared your head? You're a smug bragger.
Stayed home and threw things while guzzling a bottle of wine? COOL!
(When we all know most of us actually do a bit of both.)
I'm getting a bit over it. I know it's great to have a laugh at ourselves on the days we fall apart a bit, and I'm all for letting things fall in a heap every so often. Sometimes it's important to feel that.
But I want to hear about the good stuff too, I want to hear more of that again. I want to soak up the knowledge that when I fall down the hole for a bit I can come crawling back out again.
What I'm saying is, when you do something that's good for you - shout it from the rooftops. It's a good thing, not something to hide. Brag away!
This week I let the cravings take control of me. I spent a day eating nothing but sweets and packaged foods - and by that night I wasn't feeling too great. Overnight, my skin was literally burning hot and itchy, and I woke feeling grumpy.
So I turned it around. The last few days I've taken control again - the cravings are still there, I just say no to them, or convince myself my cravings are for other things. It's back to fresh foods here, with the highlight being breakfasts (surely if you start the day healthily, it sets the tone?). The picture above is of a delicious toasted muesli I made to redeem myself from the bad eating.
Your turn. It can be anything: food, exercise, taking a step towards a dream, a great parenting moment, doing something for yourself - anything. What do you want to brag about?
