Hi guys! It's been awhile, I know. Just haven't been feeling "it" lately.
But I wanted to share with you this excellent post written by Robyn Downs of Real Food Whole Life. It's about finding that tricky balance of living within the extremes of all or nothing; good or bad; on the wagon or off the wagon.
I think so many of us have troubles with this one...you know the routine...you're following a meal plan religiously. You're doing great, feeling virtuous. Then, something comes up to derail you - like an event with friends, a birthday, whatever. The derailing isn't just that one event though...you decide to eat-whatever-you-want-since-you-already-fucked-it-up-anyway. You know darn well what I am talking about. Why do we think it has to be all or nothing? Why do we feel we have to live in these extremes? What has happened to moderation?
Anyway, please read this excellent post if this too is something you currently struggle with: http://www.realfoodwholelife.com/blog/on-quitting-extremes-living-and-eating-in-joy-and-pleasure
