Life is about balance and as planned, I had a few cocktails at the weekend and ate without restrictions. What I am though is mindful of my eating and of when I let go and drink my way through an entire cocktail list...
Over indulge- but be aware. Those cocktails probably have a hell of a lot of calories and the food was non stop. So instead of sitting on my backside tonight watching tele I went for a walk with the kids. Throughout the week I may just say no to a vanilla latte each day and just have one the whole week. I may just not buy that bar of chocolate...I may have an extra 30 minute run Friday night instead of what I usually do- sit and chill.
Living a healthy lifestyle is balance. It’s not restriction and starvation it’s just mindfulness! LIVE, don’t restrict, just be aware of what’s going in and what your body is expending and be as active as possible (that also doesn’t mean killing yourself in the gym every day!!) that can mean yoga, walking, stretching, taking the stairs instead of the lifts, walking or cycling to work instead of driving, stopping a few stops early on your bus home, taking the family for a bike ride, extending your dog walk etc
I had fun letting go and definitely thought I was Beyoncé or something....but wow I am paying for it sleep wise... I’ll be catching up all week because my kids love to wake up at 530am 😎🥳 when you don’t get in till 3am... that’s not a lot of sleep 🙃
