This is a very common question I get asked both personally and professionally all the time -- how do you stay on track with healthy eating, exercising and more? It's a great question because often times when we feel stressed out or our schedules are overbooked we seem to loose track of our health goals. As well, some of us just loose motivation after a few weeks. Does this describe you?
I know this might surprise you, but it's more than just "motivation and self-control" when it comes to staying on track with your health goals. In fact, it's more about letting go of "control" especially when it comes to having the occasional indulgence. From personal experience, I used to think food was the enemy, I felt guilty if I ate ice cream and constantly counted my calories and weighed myself. And you can definitely move past this. I did! I've never looked back and I've never felt healthier and happier than I do now.
I focused on how healthy eating and moving my booty makes me feel as opposed to how I look.
Looking great is really just a side effect of great health. When you feel healthy on the inside, it boosts your confidence and you feel beautiful on the outside. Taking time for self-care is extremely important no matter if you live alone, have 4 kids or 3 dogs and a cat!
Make time to take care of you, because you'll be kinder to yourself and towards others and the world will be a more joyous place.... seriously!
So quit beating yourself up about not being able to stay on track and watch this video because I really hope you get some valuable tips out of it.
