If every time you over-eat, you fall apart & binge; you’re gonna struggle to lose weight.
If every time you miss a workout, you feel like a failure & give up; you’re going to struggle to change your health.
“All or nothing” mentality is when we believe things have to be PERFECT in order to be effective… & if they’re not perfect, we think we’ve failed & done irreparable damage. We get overwhelmed, & we give up.
THIS is doing more damage to your fitness goals than the Oreos you ate that you think “messed you up”.
Quit thinking in black/white terms with your fitness journey & learn to make peace with the normal ups and downs that come.

Food is not good or bad.
Some foods are more nutritious than others - but FOOD DOES NOT HAVE MORALITY.
You’re not “good” for eating broccoli, or “bad” for eating chips.
And until you stop letting there be a judge and jury over your food choices, making you feel guilty for eating anything that’s not traditionally healthy, you’re going to struggle with your relationship with food.
We’ve got to learn to be okay with ALL foods - and not feel guilty for enjoying them.

There’s nothing “balanced” about waking up Monday morning, bloated, the scale up 5lbs, feeling sick from all you ate and drank on the weekend.
Balance is TRULY balancing your indulgences - having them when you want them, throughout the week, not using the weekend as an excuse to over-eat and over-indulge.
Here’s the thing.. they say knowledge is power, but actually… ACTION is power.
Knowing these things don’t help if you’re not applying them.
And I know the application part is hardest of all. 💜 Which is why I teach it inside of B&T. I help women over come these mindsets every day.
Balance & Thrive closes its doors in just a few days. Don’t miss this. Link in bio💜
