When was the last time you didn’t track the foods you are eating?
You know what I mean. Each and every time you are about to eat, you pull out your phone, open up MyFitnessPal and begin calculating.
You begin calculating how much you can eat, if it fits, if it’s a good use of your calories for the day.
From there you might question if you should head to the gym just so you can eat more.

The only problem? The transportation never gets you to where you want to be.
I get it, girl. It’s frustrating to give it your all only to realize you’ve come up short – again.
You want to exude confidence. You want to feel like you are worthy of acceptance. You want to be seen. You want to be heard. You want to be comfortable in your own skin.
