Food and exercise are NOT a transactional relationship. ⠀
I used to suppose that if I ran X variety of miles, I “earned” a couple of glasses of wine or pasta for dinner as a result of I burned a sure variety of energy. ⠀
I additionally thought donuts may solely be eaten on the weekend as a result of I used to be having a “cheat” day. ⠀
And simply because I went out to brunch with associates on Sunday, it meant that I needed to skip an impromptu comfortable hour on Monday.
What I’ve discovered over time, nevertheless, is that meals is gas and nourishment. Food can be enjoyable, scrumptious, and stuffed with all of the GOOD issues in life. It’s meant to be ENJOYED and it’s okay (greater than okay, really) for those who LOVE what you eat ALL the time!
And your exercise degree does NOT immediately correlate to the kind of meals you possibly can get pleasure from. No meals is morally higher than one other, Monday is nearly as good a day to deal with your self as Friday, and you don’t have to burn 500 energy to “earn” 500 energy.
