When I started Instagram I was all about eating "clean" and working out all day everyday - I was in the middle of my weight loss journey. Fast forward almost 2 years I found myself not wanting that anymore.
Back then life wasn't more than fitness and food for me - now, it is still a big part, it is my passion, what I am going to do for a living..but with a whole new perspective on it.
It is a part of life, always will be for me, but it isn't my MAIN focus anymore.
Life is about so much more than what you look like. Life is about love, laughing, happiness, failing, creating, changing, finding balance and comfort.
I will never again restrict myself to the point where I can't go out eat because I can't calculate macros - why the hell would I take away a beautiful night out with good food and friends to not go over a certain number of calories? - it sounds crazy to me now.
Balance is the key to everything, anything you do in excess isn't good for you longterm.
- of course, if you compete it is a different story.
But for me, it is all about feeling good..and that involves freedom with food and working out, not feeling guilty and enjoying life.
