Got this message from Theresa last week:
Which I absolutely love,
Because in a world of ‘keeping up with the Joneses”
Comparing ourselves to everyone else..
The fact is…
The secret to getting the results YOU want
Is to focus on what you can control TODAY..
Making choices that make you feel good (not please anyone else…)
You see, it is not about ‘restriction’
It is not about ‘being hungry all of the time’
It is actually about knowing that you have a choice today..
No one forces us to exercise
To choose more nutritious so called ‘healthy foods’
Sure, some might call that boring .
Some might prefer to do something else
And that is OK
You might change your decision day to day
But the key thing here?
Is knowing you have the choice.
It is why we describe our food choices a bit like having a budget…
If we spend a lot on meals out and wine every week…
We might not have enough left over for the weekend away we wanted..
Just like if we always choose to eat the cake because it is in the office and ‘it is there’
That is OK but we probably won’t get the results we want if we are not in a calorie deficit (whether you count the calories or not)
And the secret?
Learning to love the process.
And how it makes you feel
And being OK with not always making the ‘best’ choice
It has to fit your lifestyle and the lifestyle you want to live
