This is the second year in a row I am completely unconcerned with how many burpees or miles I need to run in order to negate calories eaten from candy, or combating weight gain during holidays. I keep seeing those ultra annoying infographics that have how much activity you need to do to burn off candy X, Y, and Z and decided this year I’d have a little fun of my own and create my own. Because, nobody cares.
So what changed? It’s not a restrictive diet or magic pill/potion… it’s a change in mindset- “all or something”. One of the big messages that is spoken from an amazing tribe of women in an online group I’m a part of.
Once upon a time I’d eat ALLLLLLLLL the Reese’s, you know to get them out of the house because they were tempting. (That candy tax was harsh, sorry Kids). Then last year I stopped restricting and moralizing food and had a few during Halloween. I spent my holidays enjoying the traditional food prepared lovingly by family members without feeling guilty for declining when I was offered seconds, not finishing all my food and stopping according to my hunger cues. It was AWESOME and I can’t wait to do it again this year!
