Yay! Christmas is finally here!! Let’s spend the day having fun and cherishing every moment with our loved ones.
We just wanted to send you a little reminder that’s it’s totally OK if you overindulge a little today. Food is part of our shared culture and it’s supposed to be fun and YUM. We want you to find enjoyment in what you’re eating, over Christmas and every day – not see it as some kind of test of how disciplined you are. And for that reason, we never, EVER want you to punish yourself for a “bad day”.
When you set the bar impossibly high, you have a long way to fall. Like anything in life, if you want to make something a sustainable lifestyle habit, it’s best to take things one step at a time. To be kind to yourself. To accept that nobody’s perfect and sometimes, you’ve just really gotta eat some trifle or gingerbread cookies!
It’s one of the reasons we don’t count calories, or impose restrictive diets, here at Keep it Cleaner. We don’t want to label foods as “good” and “bad” – we simply want to help you make better decisions for your mind and body, more regularly. We’re not about dieting – we’re about making little changes towards a more nutritious, fresher diet. Why? Because those little changes will eventually add up and leave you feeling happier and healthier.
We’re human. We’re flawed. We’re fallible. And while we should absolutely strive for a healthy, full existence – one that is brimming with delicious vegetables, legumes, and fruits as often as possible – we also know that life is there to be lived. Also – keep in mind we are thinking big picture here! We want to change your life across months and years. A second helping of mince pies is not going to hurt you in the long run!
Being healthy is just as much about your mind as it is your body – so please don’t be hard on yourself when you’re doing so amazingly. This isn’t a matter of good or bad, it’s a process of getting better, fitter, and stronger, while still having room for the odd indulgence along the way.
If you do find that you’ve completely gone overboard, all we ask of you is this: Be gentle with yourself. Do a mindfulness session. Take a bath. Go to bed, and know that tomorrow is a new day. Wake up, have a yummy, colourful, fresh breakfast of things that make your body sing and head out for a morning run in the beautiful sunshine.
It’s only one, tiny day. And you, gorgeous girl, are doing just fine.
