Be healthy & Happy or Diet and Restrict your way through life…?

Sometimes it’s a really good idea to ask yourself ‘Do those extra few pounds matter?’

Why are we so super critical and harsh on ourselves?

Do you ever find yourself wanting a flat stomach and to be as trim as possible while also wanting to enjoy your weekends and living life to the max?

It can be a really helpful exercise to every so often, stop and evaluate what YOU want, not just what you’ve be conditioned to want or what you THINK you want.

Dieting to get to a certain weight for a short period of time is so pointless. To be that weight for an event and then go up the second it’s over, what’s that about. It feels like the normal thing to do until you actually logically think about it. Get to a certain weight for an event, but then in your day to day life when you’re out and about, it doesn’t matter so much?

If you constantly find yourself gaining and losing weight, I would have a really good think about what you actually want.

How many times per week do you want to work out? What are your guidelines on your nutrition? What dress size would you love to be ALL of the time? Can you accept that if you eat out and enjoy nice treats that you won’t ever achieve a flat stomach, or the smallest dress size you can be?

When you start to get real with yourself, life becomes A LOT more fun.

Rather than have unrealistic goals and then be constantly  beating yourself up when you don’t hit them, you’ll actually have real workable goals, and it becomes so much more fun!

On top of that, you’ll start to really enjoy being fit and healthy WHILE enjoying your treats GUILT free as you will now know that you can of course eat treats AND still be fit and healthy MAYBE NOT having a flat STOMACH but that’s the small price to pay to not turning into a restrictive diet-y crazy person. 🙂

LOL! I hope you found this helpful.
