We go through so many ups and downs in everyday life yet we expect our body to stay exactly same.
I’m talking everything from going through a period of stress and gaining a few kilos to having a baby and your body shape changing completely.
There are a very small % of people who stay in shape all year round, some of them are genetically like that and for some it’s their job such as fitness models/bikini competitors.
It’s not real life, yet we look up to them as the goal but we need to get realistic.
We need to face reality – our bodies are going to change. Stop striving for the body you had 20 years ago before the 3 kids. Strive for the best version of yourself that is now.
Make a decision on what your priorities are, what kind of life do you want to lead.
For example – is being ripped really the goal? Or was that you goal when you were 20 and you just kept rolling with it. Will having a 6 pack make you happier? If yes, then cool keep going.
Another option would be
To live a bit more of a balanced life, drinks with friends, brunches with family but still make good health choices, be active but you might just carry a couple of extra kilos.
There are other options of course but once you decide, you can let go of what you thought you wanted and its quite freeing.
