National Nutrition Month: Tip #30

I saved the best tip for last…do the best you can. Often we put unrealistic expectations and pressure on ourselves to eat perfect. What is perfect anyway? There is NO perfect way to eat, only what works best for you. Striving for perfection will leave you feeling defeated and feeling defeated will make you want to give up. One meal or snack will not do you in, it is feeling guilty about that meal or snack that will lead to a downhill spiral. Enjoy food! Enjoy eating! Just take responsibility for those food selections 90% of the time.

The only person in the way of you succeeding is yourself. YOU CAN DO THIS! You just have to believe you can. So who believes they can? I want to hear it!!!
I have enjoyed posting tips this month and I hope you have enjoyed reading them. I might just pop in every now and again!
