I feel like ranting for a bit here….
I like being healthy!
I love the way I feel after I’ve gone to a hot yoga class, have gone on an eliptical machine or gone snowboarding. And I like eating a good healthy meal.
But I also love myself a Mcdonald’s “double cheese burger dressed like a big mac” once in awhile! (yes, you can do that… it’s like a mini big mac)
I like indulging and eating delicious food that may not necessarily be the most healthy thing for you. Like decadent desserts, and a savory steak (word play intended).
But I really don’t think that starving yourself, working out everyday for a couple hours, and drinking crazy protein shakes with supplements to make you “bulk up” or “slim down” or whatever else they do, is a healthy option either.
I’m not buddhist, but I follow the buddhist way of “everything in moderation”.
If you make food your god, and eat too much for no reason except that you’re bored, you’re not being healthy. And if you make excercise and fitness your god, and eat only bland greens and protien shakes, you’re not being healthy either.
Blogs and websites like this drive me mental! http://fuckyeahfitspo.tumblr.com/page/4
Like seriously…. being obsessed with ANYTHING is not healthy. So if you can’t get through the day without worrying about your weight, how many calories you’ve had or stepping on the scale, you have an issue. Seek help.
