I'm your biggest cheerleader!
That's a phrase that I want you to take out of your vocabulary. Not because I don't want you to eat a donut, but because I don't want you feel like a "Cheater!" When has been being a cheater a good thing? We are taught that cheating is wrong. You have to apologize for cheating. You can go to jail for some types of cheating. You can get expelled for cheating. WHY is okay to cheat on ourselves? Do you want a donut? Why wait until your cheat day? Do you have to be "good" until then? Workout harder so that you deserve your donut? What if you don't and you eat the donut anyways? Workout harder to burn off your cheat day? Skip dinner? Are you punishing yourself for eating the donut? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔How about we flip it and reverse it. If you really love donuts and I tell you that you cannot have one ever again, that will set you up for frustration, failure or Cheat Days. (and the negative feelings that come along with it) How about eating a donut, your most favorite donut, once in awhile, sitting down with it, savoring it and enjoying it without any negative feelings or the feeling that you are going to have to punish yourself at the gym later? This is what @nutritiouslifeofficial taught me as a Conscious Indulgence. Do I want you to eat donuts all the time? NO!!!! But when you stop treating food as a reward or a punishment, you can relax a little and realize that you CAN eat really amazing, whole and healthy food and occasionally eat a donut and the world doesn't end! And you don't have to have a special Cheat Day or kill yourself in the gym or skip meals. It can be quite freeing! It can also be hard to practice if you have YEARS of restricting and depriving yourself of food. 💁🏼 So dabble in it.
