The Healthy Struggle
The struggle is always so real for me to eat healthy! I workout on a regular basis and try to lead a very healthy and active lifestyle. But I must confess that I have a major sweet tooth. I literally CANNOT turn down a cookie, cupcake, or slice of pie. I always feel like life is just too short to turn down a cookie and I always say, “you only live once!” So that’s where balance comes in.
I believe that everything should be in moderation. Moderation is the balance. There is no need for deprivation. I try not to eat a cookie everyday, however, I allow myself to enjoy the cookie when I do have one. I also do my best to stay away from carbs. Some days I’m successful with saying no to sweets, other days I’m not and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. You need to love yourself and not beat yourself up over enjoying a cookie or carb for that matter. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed and that means enjoying those sweet donuts while washing them down with some healthy green juice!
