It's funny how sometimes a simple image can put everything into perspective. When I was scrolling through pinterest the other day I noticed the image I posted to the left, and I got to say it made me realize that I needed to re-evaluate where I was at.
My eat clean kick had put me into a funk and I honestly seemed to be having a hard time balancing my diet. By trying to live up to this expectation I had in my head I was only beating myself up because I couldn't live up to it and I was craving more junk then normal. Because of that I felt defeated and I was becoming less then happy.
I truly believe that finding a balance and a lifestyle that you can live with is key in becoming a better you. Eating clean isn't for everyone and I am ok with that. To find myself again I have determined that I need to refocus and get back to my balance of a normal healthy diet that is partially clean and partially not. I need to make ME happy and allow myself to hit my goals my way. To be honest I was happier and in better shape when I wasn't trying to restrict myself.
So for anyone reading out there I want you to be honest with yourself and find the balance in your life that will make YOU happy!
