Nutrition Tip

July 21, 2014

Be nice to yourself. Sometimes when we are trying to be excellent, especially when it comes to eating, we get angry and berate ourselves when we overindulge or slip up. I did it for years and it never worked, in fact, it backfired! Over many years of struggling to find a balance in my nutrition I have had the most success by listening to my body, allowing myself to eat for enjoyment, and eating to feel the way I want to feel. I eat healthy, but not perfectly. I talk to myself in my head like I would speak to a swimmer I am coaching: in a positive, supportive, and encouraging way. Try it if you haven’t. Be nice to yourself and see what happens!
