What does chasing perfection do?
Here comes the subconscious mind again… “Oh well, you F***Ked it now….what’s the point, may as well eat ALL the food and start again next week”…. Sound familiar?
If I am being honest with you, almost 90% of women that I have had consultations with (and this is into the hundreds now), have ALL experienced this viscous cycle…either with food, fitness or both…The cycle of chasing something unattainable only leaves you feeling dissatisfied, so you self-harm with negative thoughts or poor lifestyle/food choices.
What can you do: Be Realistic, Reduce the Pressure, TREAT yourself once in a while! Depriving yourself only ever leads to over indulging, eventually.
Instead of NO chocolate, what about simply trying LESS chocolate?
Or instead of exercising 7 DAYS A WEEK, why don’t you start with 3 times a week? The more achievable your goals are, the more likely you are to stay on track, and instead of swinging in the extremes of on track / off track you will have a sustainable and consistent journey.
So with Easter upon us, I am saying to you “EAT THE DAMN EASTER EGGS” it’s once a year, buy a few, eat them without over indulging, fricken ENJOY it and then MOVE ON! don’t tell yourself that you wont have ANY chocolate, or a hot cross bun…because more than likely you will, and THAT’S OK! What isn’t ok is beating yourself up afterwards.
Peace beautiful humans xx
