Let’s chat about bloating + fullness:
Bloating is a completely normal and common experience. If you recently put food in your body, your gut needs some time/space to work with it! As your body digests food, gas may be produced by the bacteria in the intestine that causes your abdominal region to feel slightly distended. Bloating can also result from MANY different things, including underrating, eating too much fiber, overexercising, and/or irregular eating patterns. Bloating is VERY common and expected for those engaging in disordered eating patterns. Food restrictions aren’t going to solve bloating the vast majority of the time if the issue is one’s relationship toward food.
Fullness, on the other hand, happens in the stomach. Bloating happens in the intestines. Fullness means your stomach is full of food.
You can be bloated and not be full, because bloating and fullness are two completely different things. Just because you may be bloated from lunch does not mean your body is not hungry for dinner. Bloating is in your intestines, fullness is in your stomach, and while the may feel similar - they are different!
(As always, if you are in the process of relearning connection with body cues, it is always best to work with an ED RD instead of Instagram DIY-ing it.)
Something I really struggle with is working my shoulders😩 honestly I’d rather cry than have these days in the gym BUT I’m getting better and during this workout I felt more confident than I ever have before. Being able to walk into the gym and hit your planned workout everyday is HARD okay,, But you are your only competitor, you are the only one that can cheat yourself!!! Don’t stop when you have 2 reps left in your set, PUSH YOURSELF BECAUSE YOURE ONLY GETTING BETTER!!
