4/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 12. April 2013 21:23

I can’t speak enough about how important it is for success with clean eating and exercise to have a great support system.  It sounds so easy when you read about it, but in reality it can be a challenge.  There may be people in your life that try (unknowingly) to sabotage your success in changing your traditional eating patterns and healthy living.  That would require them to take a hard look at their own patterns, and that may be something they fear. 

These people may encourage you to eat fatty foods, or alcohol when you’re together in social situations, when you had a plan not to have those things in advance.  Eating or drinking high calorie or over processed foods can put on weight.  What can you do?  Know that they aren’t doing that to hurt you.  But, knowing how important you’re continued good health is, try to educate them on your goals and ask for their help. 

I’ve heard from some people that I work out too often or am too regimented in my eating.  What those people don’t understand is the power that my food choices and exercise plans give to me.  Not only do they keep me healthy, and full of energy, but they help my mental happiness by empowering me.  I’ve stated in my blogs before that I feel these choices have kept me from needing medicinal medication during times of extreme stress in my life (divorce, stalking ex-husband, my mother’s death).  I’m not saying medication is bad or unnecessary for anyone else.  I am saying that for me, I was able to manage my stress through these positive life choices without medicines. 

Before you make any changes to any medications or begin an exercise program, meet with your personal physician.  Discuss your plans, and make sure you are on the right track.
