So I made it to the finish line!! My first 30day fit challenge is done and dusted and although I had some missteps along the way, boy do I feel wonderful. Energizing my body with wholefoods really gives me a great boost of energy and happiness. What I’ve learned, is that dieting is not always the best option. Most people just can’t tolerate strict diet restrictions for too long, hence why many diets fail.
I’ve learned more about my body and by eating to fuel my body makes me feel beautiful from the inside out. Regular exercise is a great way to boost mood, as the body release chemicals called endorphins. Processed foods, refined sugars and carbohydrates, make me feel ill, bloated, tired and heavy. I think from now I’ll try to stick to the 80/20 rule. 80% of the foods I eat will be natural wholefoods. I will only eat when I’m hungry and I will never eat until I’m uncomfortably full.
All in all, I’ve had a few setbacks, but I’m happy with my progress. I stuck to my exercise routine even when my diet fell through. Depriving yourself will only lead to bingeing… I’m proof of that! Moderation is key – in eating and possibly more importantly, in your thinking.
