His and Hers. These were our breakfast choices today. My amazing in laws took the kids last night and this morning we had the opportunity to run and get whatever we wanted to eat. When it comes to breakfast, I want eggs everyday. I love savory breakfast, I love healthy food. I am not a fan of sugar for breakfast. When it comes to fitness and nutrition, I am an addict. I want the best results. I hate being slowed down. My hubby on the other hand is a hedonist when it comes to fitness and nutrition. He hates working out and only does it because he needs to and when it comes to food he wants to enjoy everything this world has to offer especially when it comes to baked goods! So you can imagine that it gets quite interesting around here! It's good for us both! I need to brought down to earth and enjoy life and my hubby needs to make healthy decisions consistently. He has taught me that you do need to treat yourself. So today, I want to leave you with two tips!
1. If you are a hedonist like my husband, plan out your treats! For him, it's donuts on Saturday morning. He gets through the week of my healthy meals knowing that he gets his favorite treat on the weekend. Healthy eating is a long term lifestyle for us and in order for that to be livable for him, he needs to know that he can indulge on a regular basis. Your healthy lifestyle has to be something you can live with so make it your own. Maybe it slows down your results but if it keeps you going and seeing progress, it's better than setting a standard that is too high for you to realistically keep!
2. Don't eat things you don't enjoy JUST because other people are eating them. I was about 24 years old when I realized I don't like ice cream. I was sitting there eating it and realized I don't enjoy it so why waste the treat? Skip the things you don't love and hold out for the things that lift your spirits. We are so conditioned to just do what others are doing that sometimes we don't even realize we don't want it. Make a list! What are your "things"? What do you love? If its not on there, skip it!
