CONFESSIONS OF A FITNESS BLOGGER: I Don’t Eat Healthy All The Time
Happy Monday Lean Girls! I hope you all had a lovely Easter and Passover Holiday. Last time I did a Confessions post, I shared how I hate food prep. While I’ve gotten better about food and make large batches of brown rice and stocking the fridge with veggies, I’m not perfect. One of the biggest misconceptions about me, now that people know that I’m a fitness blogger and lover of all things healthy, is that people are SHOCKED (seriously, some have gasped) to learn that I eat french fries, love buffalo wings, drink wine, and enjoy the occasional ice cream cone.
On the flip side, I LOVE and prefer spinach, kale, quinoa, berries, hummus, seeds, nuts, and fish. Food from the earth nourishes me and makes me feel good. For me, being healthy is making better decisions towards a better mind and body. It’s about finding balance, loving yourself, and treating it well in all manners. Being healthy has nothing to do with be perfect and eating one particular way. However, it does have something to do with making more positive choices than damaging ones.
The biggest thing I’ve learned in my health and wellness journey, is not to beat myself up about food choices. Every meal is a fresh start and a chance to take a step closer to my goals, whether that goal is trimming fat or satiating my sweet tooth.
How do you define healthy? And how do you find balance when it comes to eating?
