My tattoos have given me so much more confidence and I couldn’t tell you why.
Life happens you know? It’s alright.
Try not to get inside of your head too much with it. Staying active and healthy is tough work and can be pretty tiring sometimes.
Get back on that path when you’re ready for it. Take it slow, eat less junk food but dont completely eliminate it from your life. It’s okay to enjoy foods you like every so often, and needless restricting is no fun.
Do workouts you enjoy. There is no reason to do something if it feels like a chore or forced. Go at your speed. Even if its a pick up game of soccer with some friends or something that rekindles a love of running you may have had or something. You get the idea.
American society has made fitness and being healthy this big thing and deal (and yes being healthy is a big deal and 10/10 would recommend but fitness does not always coincidence with health or even wellness) and put all these silly pressures on eachother and it sucks the damn fun out of everything. Also your Wellness (self-worth, image, efficacy) is just as important as your health. So try to work on those things as well as the health.
But, do them at your own pace and because you want to.
