i feel like lately i’ve been criticized for the way that i eat. i can go over the top sometimes with a lot of things, especially food. when i say “over the top” i mean with indulging in foods that are not so good for me as well. i eat healthy because i CHOOSE to. it makes me feel amazing and great about myself. my body is the only one i have; i want to keep it as healthy and in shape as possible. life is short!! take care of your body. your stomach is not a waste basket. intake the foods that are going to make you feel alive and energized! of course, i treat myself; but that is the fun part!! i eat well and train hard so i can earn my treats and guilty cravings. and guess what? i don’t feel bad about it 🙂 ! so everyone that tells me i need to stop dieting… i’m not “dieting”. i am simply living a healthy lifestyle. simple as that.
