So, so SO many girls out there think they are alone in their habits and behaviour, I’m here to tell you, you are NOT!
Lets see if you can relate….
|You’ve eaten so much over the weekend that by Sunday night you promise to never feel the way you do again and make a promise that Monday is the start of something new.
|Monday comes you eat junk then think meh I’ve already eaten bad now might as well go all out and start NEXT Monday.
|You ‘deserve’ it because you did something great or accomplished a goal (you are not a dog do not reward your self with treats)
|Scroll endlessly through babes on instagram. Looking at these photos will not get you any closer to looking like these people!
|Social eater – you want people to think you are eating so will smash an entre, main and dessert and pretend it didn’t even hit the sides.
|You eat healthy all day then get home and eat the whole fridge.
|You still live at home and feel bad not eating mums fettuccine carbonara with 3 pieces of garlic bread and extra parmesan.
|It’s ‘raw’ and ‘organic’ chocolate so it okay – NO!!
|Over thinking and trying to cook up all these fancy ‘clean’ superfoods.
|Eats good for 1 week doesn’t see initial results then gives up!
|Seeing people on these strict calorie deficient diets (usually over weight people) and thinking that’s what I need to do to see results because a shake fixes everything right and you’ll loose 10kgs in 1 week right? (Perfect timing before your holiday that crept up!)
|Taking all these unrealistic un-maintainable supplements such as fat shredders to diuretics and laxatives – these things cause term damage! (More on this another day)
|About to eat some junk and refusing to look at the nutritional information.
|Take things to the extreme by counting every carb and calorie and becoming to consumed in numbers that eating becomes more of a maths problem. (Unless you’re an elite body figure competitor STOP!)
|Cals in vs cal out right? So I’ll not eat then when I do I’ll eat rubbish and still be under in my calories by the end of the day. – Technically speaking yes this is true but the nutritional value of a bag of chips compared to a salad is incomparable, by doing this you are loosing important nutrients your body needs, this will start to show through your skin and digestive system pretty quickly!
|Go out for social drinks (which is fine) end up binge drinking and eating maccas, kfc and a kebab on the way home then the next morning consuming chips and gravy and promising never to drink again… until the next social event.
|OD on the SAME food –you are that routine it is crazy right!
|Last but not least weight yourself- like all the time. Some slight addiction we have like the number defines us and how we look? Might as well get hit by a car, leaves us with the same feeling.
I literally wrote all these points without having to stop and think once! Why? Because I’m also a normal girl and have done all of the above from one point to another – it has taken me over 20 years to learn to love my body in the process putting it through some crazy hectic sh*t and for what? If you can relate to any or all of my points above stay tuned because I’m going to teach you a bit of self lovin’ and a healthier way to train, eat & live.
