I find it so important to for us to celebrate the little victories we achieve along our health and wellness path. It’s a long and sometimes quite difficult path with tons of hurdles along the way.
Once you achieve one set of goals a challenge in your life can sometimes set you one step behind on your journey. It’s life and guess what? It’s gonna happy people!
What if instead of always focusing on the negative aspect of our set backs we actually looked at the positive decisions we’ve made lately. The ones where we decided to only have one treat at the holiday party instead of sampling every single one. Even the ones your aren’t even into. Yep those could of somehow got on your plate too. You made the decision to treat yourself and you deserve it but you also decided to be reasonable with those choices.
Focus on rocking those positive decisions instead of beating yourself up about indulging in that holiday dessert. In my personal experience allowing yourself a “cheat meal” or “cheat dessert” is actually a good thing. You work hard on your wellness journey and it’s nice to enjoy a treat every once in a while.
That doesn’t mean your gonna turn it into a cheat day in the sense that every meal will be a health junkies nightmare! Let’s be real people! A treat and binging are two totally different things.
I say enjoy your holiday parties and festivities. Enjoy something that makes your heart sing and don’t feel guilty about it. Remember to focus on all the positive choices you also made that day and how amazing you are.
