I had to upload this photo of this delicious raw dessert form Juice Garden I shared with Jamie the other day. Chocolate hazelnut caramel slice, yummy!
Went to the busiest Lululemon yoga class to date! We were in a different location to fit everyone and it was amazing to see so many people practising yoga in one space.
I’m only in here quickly to say a quick hi! My baby sister and Jamie’s mum and brother are here at the moment and I’m trying to spend as much time with them as possible before they all leave to go back to their respective countries on Thursday. It’s so wonderful to have people over and spend some quality time with them. It’s the first time Sarah has met Jamie’s mum and brother as well, which has been fun.
We have been out for a lot of nice meals so it’s safe to say I have been indulging quite a bit lately. Plus I didn’t get a chance to go to the gym much last week because I was ridiculously busy with university work. Or as much as I would have wanted to. I still managed to go twice and got to the Lululemon yoga class.
It’s easy to feel bad at these times when you feel like you’ve made such great progress with your healthy food changes and working out. I can feel a hint of guilt sometimes when I’m not on track but why should I? The majority of the time I eat food that nourishes my body and usually I work out five times a week. Why should a small lapse in diet and working out make me feel bad? It shouldn’t and I won’t let myself feel bad about it. Sometimes you need to remind yourself that it’s okay to not be a 100% on track all the time. Sometimes your eating habits go out the window, sometimes you didn’t manage to get to the gym. As long as you get back on track, that’s all that matters in the end. It’s a marathon and not a sprint. What happens along the way yes it does have an impact but as long as you keep your goals and values in mind you will get to where you want to be in the end.
What I want to say is we’re all human and we aren’t perfect. You can be healthy and still eat it out (maybe not every day of the week but you know what I mean). Healthier options are also becoming more common on restaurant menus, which makes it a lot easier as well. Don’t cut out the joys in your life because by doing that you are not building a sustainable lifestyle. Then of course you need to remember where you want to be and build a lifestyle that supports those goals.
Anyway, I’m going to stop blabbering now 😛
Speak to you soon my dears xxx
