Burritos OR burpees?
Chips OR crunches?
How about tacos and tortillas?
Let’s be honest for a moment, there has been a huge push lately to eat healthier, be healthier, work out like crazy, and plan for our bikini bodies months in advance. But there is also another push; to eat good food, lots and lots of good food.
Why can’t we have both? Why can’t we have our cake and eat it too?
Wouldn’t that be nice?
Ladies, listen up:
To all the ladies who love to work out, this is for you.
To all the ladies who hate to work out, this is for you.
To all the ladies who meal plan like crazy, this is for you.
To all the ladies who don’t eat the healthiest, and prefer captain crunch over a carrot, this is for you.
Remember, you are beautiful. No matter what color your skin is, the texture of your hair, the blemishes on your face, the number on the scale, or the amount of cardio you do a week. No one in this world should dictate how you view yourself. Be that boss woman who has confidence for anything she sets her mind to. Let your confidence radiate. Next, remember that being healthy shouldn’t be a “have to”. If you are unsure about your weight or the way you look in a mirror, step back and evaluate who you are trying to impress. If it is anyone BUT you, you will always have a negative viewpoint of fitness. Like the famous Elle Woods stated, “Endorphins make you happy.” Walk into a gym or your living room and know that those endorphins are about to make you happy. Feel empowered and strong! But, lastly, enjoy this life! And more specifically enjoy food. There is no law that states you can’t be fit but LOVE food.
I’ll be honest, I love a good cheeseburger and a big coca-cola, also, love pizza, and cake… and pretty much any food that is flat-out delicious.
Hear me out, one more time. It is okay to treat yourself! It is okay to work-out hard, and eat a cheeseburger or experience amazing pasta at an Italian food restaurant. It is okay to want a burrito or a couple tacos, or even queso and chips!
You are living this one life. ONE.
Live it up. Tear up the dance floor on a Friday night and then work out on Saturday. Enjoy that meal that is delicious while still planning out your bikini bod strategy. Keep a mindset that everything you do is for you. And push forward to make you a better woman even if that means avoid a few burpees to enjoy a burrito.
So if you ask me, I’ll choose burritos and burpees.
