Everything in Moderation
This whole weight loss and fitness journey thing that we thrust upon ourselves can be an evil beast – if you let it.
All consuming, self-depriving and even worse… self-shaming.
I see it happen in real life and a lot on Facebook.
Personally, I didn’t know food could be dirty?
The last I knew cheating happened in school – when you wrote formulas on the back of wooden rulers for Advanced Maths. (Sorry Mum & Dad!)
And even worse, “No [insert banned substance] for 30 days”.
Now you and I both know that abstaining often increases the urge to be an all consuming need, which then results in greater excess consumed than what would have been consumed under “normal” life conditions.
Sometimes I feel like grabbing people and shaking them whilst screaming, “It doesn’t have to be this way! Have you ever heard of balance?!”
Not. At. All.
Take the pressure of yourself to change everything overnight and just tweak one small thing.
Commit to always having your “treat” (not cheat) food in small doses – whenever you feel like it. I dare you!
Start moving your body in ways that you love and that feel good for you.
If you’ve been stuck in a place where you’ve adopted the feast or famine mindset than why not take a moment to question how exhausting that can be…
Do you really want to keep going down that path?
I think it’s time for you to blaze a new trail, don’t you think?
