October 17, 2019. A day that marked the change in all our lives. Politics aside, one fact is clear: our lives aren’t the same anymore. In the past four chapters, I have emphasized the need to create consistency, raise food consciousness, and fight through dips. I never thought my preaching would be put to the test this soon and to this extent.
I was convinced that if I worked-out hard enough, I can eat whatever I want and be happy — and for a while I was. It wasn’t until I got habituated to my eating lifestyle that the negative aspects started to weigh in. The extra kilograms, the oily and outbreak-prone skin, the animal-like addiction to junk food, those were only some of the visible effects of my unhealthy eating habits.
Probably one of the toughest barriers about becoming someone you always dreamt of being is the struggle with the self. It is sad, yet sarcastically funny, how our biggest enemy to our success is, you guessed it, ourselves.
