BE KIND TO YOURSELF
We all have cravings for less-than-healthy foods from time to time and there are certainly situations that call for a little chocolate. YUM! If you are occasionally allowing yourself an extra treat (but are otherwise eating healthy), then embrace it and don’t feel guilty. This is what I call the “90/10”, eat healthy 90% of the time and allow yourself 10% freedom for treats. However, if you find yourself indulging in dessert every night, think about that impact on your decision to eat healthier, then come up with a plan for healthier eating moving forward.
Obsessing and beating yourself up over unhealthy eating isn’t going to inspire you to want to change – it’s going to make you feel guilty! No one likes to feel guilty and it’s certainly not fun to associate food with guilt. Be patient with yourself and know that nobody has a perfect diet, but making healthier choices add up to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
It’s always easier (and more enjoyable!) when we try something new with a buddy. Enlist the support of a friend or family member and help each other to make healthier changes. Swap recipes, try out new restaurants together, or send each other home with leftovers from healthy dinners. Having a “health coach” can also help you to feel supported in your decision to eat healthier and stay on track.
