Life is all about finding balance. Working out 10hrs a day isn’t healthy, the same way that binging watching Netflix while snacking on chips and beer all day every day isn’t healthy either! But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t workout, or enjoy a glass of sangria with friends, it’s about finding that balance.
I have had clients come to me with the goal of looking like Dara Torres, whose abs are popping if you didn’t know, but they also wanted to eat an entire pack of Oreos every Saturday. This is when we have to have the talk:
“What are your goals for your fitness AND your lifestyle?”
You can be healthy, hot, and have a rocking body while still enjoying a weekly night out with the girls. But you have to understand the more extreme your fitness goals are the more extreme your lifestyle will have to be to get there. If you really want to have chiseled abs and do a fitness competition great! We can make that happen, but you have to understand that will mean sticking with a very strict diet to hit that goal, bye bye happy hour.
For most of us we want to feel sexy, look hot, and be able to do the things that we enjoy. Let’s be clear, you don’t have to be 12% body fat to accomplish that! You can still go out for a pastry and coffee once a week, I do! Or grab a beer after the group ride once or twice a month. But you will also want to eat whole foods and lots of plants on the regular. You will want to move your body, get your heart rate up, and break a sweat most days of the week.
It doesn’t have to be rocket science. Tune into what makes you feel good with the foods you eat and the activities you participate in. Do more of what makes you feel great, and yes sometimes that will mean treating yourself too! Life is meant to be enjoyed and I have found the way to really enjoy life is to have a balanced, healthy, and bubbly lifestyle.
