Someone who is struggling with overweight asked me a few days ago assuming... "It takes a lot of work to stay in the condition that you are, right?" I was thinking right away, no! 😊
I'm not in any fitness condition at all or even in fashion model measures anymore (and it doesn´t bother me, I wouldn't be willing to sacrifice what it requires) but I'm feeling that I'm in the best condition of my life. I may not be just today, but generally in the last 2 years. I'm feeling good, I sleep well, my metabolism works, I'm not stressed by weight, my weight stays about the same, even though I haven't been weighing myself for years or restricting my eating almost at all. I'm happy with myself and I can enjoy the food and the life I love.
Of course, all of those go hand by hand, but the point is that I've put the least effort in staying in shape during the last couple of years. I haven't performed health at all, I haven't been hungry, I haven't felt bad because of anything I've eaten, I haven't forced myself to train if I'm tired.
When you find balance, treasure it. It took many years for me to find it, because I tried all different kinds of strict diets. They mixed my metabolism and hormone functions. If you eat too long too little and irregularly, it can slow down your metabolism. And I've been in that vicious circle. I can't recommend it. So forget diets and choose a permanently healthy and flexible lifestyle! ❤️😘
