These two photos were taken a year apart. On the right was summer 2015, and on the left was taken just a few weeks ago. I have talked atc length on my Instagram account @mymollypocket about my struggle to find balance when it comes to my attitude to food. The comforting thing I have learned in voicing this constant battle, is that I am not alone. So many of us are trying to strive towards that 'healthy lifestyle' that social media has almost demanded of us. Even though I am passionate about yoga and fitness and using my body to its full ability, I have found it difficult to find that complete feeling - if you can't love yourself how can you expect to find true happiness?! Along with my love of constantly being active, I also everyday look forward to fuelling my body, which yes, means MEAL TIME!!!! This is where I fall down in my efforts to sustain balance. For years I have deprived myself of giving in to my love of all food, healthy and not-so-healthy, sticking to a strict clean mostly paleo diet. This of course, combined with hard training, resulted in my tiny frame and lean physique which I of course enjoyed. But now I have had to sit myself down and re-access. What makes me happy? When am I happiest? I am happiest when practicing yoga, pushing myself further each day at the gym, spreading my passion for positivity through teaching, quality time with friends/family, and of course enjoying those first few bites of a delicious meal. Now I am both nervous and excited to everyday be honest with myself and my followers, sharing me search for balance in each happy pleasure I am lucky enough to have.
