10/04/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 5. October 2014 08:32

In a society where personal success often seems to be tied to physical beauty , it’s hard to keep a reality-based expectation for what we, ourselves, should look like!

As hard as I work 6-7 days per week at some form of exercise, I myself, have not achieved my self-imposed exercise/physical ideals. Can you ever really? But are we our own worst enemy?  Bad or distorted body image can sabotage you’re workout/clean eating goals and cause anyone to feel hopeless about the process.This can cause you to revert to your old, unsuccessful patterns of skipping workouts, drinking alcohol regularly, and binge/emotional eating.

LET’S ALL MAKE A CHANGE TODAY! Negative thought patterns, mindless stress eating or drinking are choices (unless you have a mental health issue- then I hope that you are getting a doctor’s assistance with that issue).  Let’s all choose to cut ourselves a break.

Here are things to remember:

-You can have 15% body fat, ripping arms and dimples on your thighs.  This is often a matter of heredity, not hard work (I know).

-Your butt probably never looks as big in those pants as you think they do.

-Pattern baldness is a natural process, to be expected in many, and no one else notices it as much as you do.If they don't like you for it, they weren't worth knowing!

-Eating a container of ice cream or a bottle of wine won’t make you feel better longterm!

Find your passion!  You are worth it!

Recognize the things you CAN CHANGE with hard work.  The things you don’t have as much control over, let go.

Develop a plan, and use a diary. It helps track your progress and your issues that need work.

It’s all about baby-steps and beginning the process every day.

Have faith in the possibilities of it all…and I hope you’ll join me in the quest for our own personal best health and that of our families!

I heard something recently that really hit home:  We (especially women) tend to compare OUR weaknesses to someone else's strengths.  I think that is so true.  Like you said, find your passion, your strengths and don't look back!

No one is standing in YOUR shoes emotionally, energy wise, with your physical challenges and strengths.  How CAN you compare to others?  You should do exercise and develop a clean eating diet plan because it works/pleases you, not others.  If this isn't your motivation it makes any plan harder to stick with!
