The last couple of months have been a lot both professionally with work and studying and also personally, doing my best to practice what I preach in regards to health and fitness but struggling with feeling uncomfortable in my own skin with the extra weight.
However, this week has been a step in the right direction. It's by no means been perfect, but perfection isn't something I strive for, my focus is on consistency and making improvements (no matter how small) every day. I want to emphasise the 'not chasing perfection' because I believe this is what holds a lot of us back when starting a diet or trying to implement a lifestyle change and can actually be the thing that stops us from progressing.
An example of this is the 'I've f****d it' mentality that so many people fall victim to. Last Wednesday I ate over my 2000 calorie daily target. That could have been the beginning of the mean self-talk, telling myself I had messed up already and falling into the trap of throwing all my previous effort in the 2 days prior out of the window because of one thing. Instead, I mentally made a list of everything that had gone to plan, went to bed and got straight back on it the next day. As you can see, I only actually met my nutritional targets 4/7 days of the week. But that was 4 days better than the week before and I still made progress and am moving in the right direction.
No one is perfect and everyday won't be the same.
Being self-compassionate when things don't go to plan will actually help you achieve your goals (science backs me up on this) not the horrible stories you tell yourself about what a failure you are. The more you can work towards liking yourself and speaking to yourself how you would a friend, the easier it is to make choices that align with your goals and to prioritise your health and make any changes you want. Not making these changes from a place of hate but from a place of care for yourself and knowing that you deserve a healthy and happy body and mind to live in.
My prioritise for this second week is to make it to the gym for 4 resistance training sessions and not to skip meals (I did a post about this on my Instagram so make sure to take a look)
Remember- PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION!
