I just had a birthday and while I felt loved and celebrated, seeing the pictures of the celebration brought on a shame spiral in which I just about decided to give up on trying to eat healthy and lose weight.
We've all experienced this. We set out to make new habits. Maybe it's making healthy food choices. Maybe it's starting a new exercise routine. It could even be wanting to implement a new morning routine of meditation. We are doing well for the first week or so and then bam! we are sidelined with either getting sick, getting injured or life throws us a curve ball.
