No matter what you ate this weekend or how much you moved your body, you do not need to spend today dieting harder or exercising longer to “make up” for this weekend. Monday does not need to be the day of punishment.
A reminder that it is perfectly normal to overeat at the holidays or eat more than you usually would if it was any other day. It’s okay to leave a holiday meal or party feeling stuffed. You do not need to compensate for the fullness and in a few hours you will need to eat again.
ave you ever put off social events, dating or job opportunities until after you lost the weight you felt you needed to lose? Do you have a number in mind that once you get there your life can truly begin?
Stop waiting! Your life can begin at any moment!
You do not need to earn the right to eat food. You still deserve to eat today and you don’t have to earn the foods you enjoy and that make you feel good. You still deserve to eat today no matter what!
No one has found the miracle diet to treat and prevent all disease and you most likely won’t find out about it this way. If you have questions about a particular diet you hear about, take those questions to a registered dietitian nutritionist. We have more science based answers than your average person and can steer you in the right direction.
Wherever you are on your self acceptance/love/respect journey, you can still start by taking care of yourself today.
