The worst form of OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Dieting!

posted on Monday, 1st February 2010 | find under 
Morning Betties, Happy February!! We made it through Jan and now we have a solid 4 weeks of Feb to kick some serious butt! In the spirit of keeping things positive in February (since it is the month that people feel a little bit bluer than normal) I'm gonna suggest you take it a little easier on yourselves. No that doesn't mean toss your gym kit to take up competitive TV watching. No. Indeed not! What it does mean though is to stop crucifying yourselves for having that extra biscuit, when really it's not the end of the world! Now I know this sounds rather unlike my usual cracking-the-whip-esque-ness but it's kind of important.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit over hearing another girl starting another diet which is likely to last ooh, let's see, about a week or two, only to be replaced with another diet, that her friend lost five pounds on! Woop diddy doo! Guess what, if you actually ate relatively sensibly most of the time and actually let your body respond to it, you might not be compelled to try the next big thing, that let's face it, gets replaced by the next big thing! I like to apply the 80/20 rule to food...eat good 80% of the time, and relax 20% of the time. Do this whichever way you will, eat good in the week and relax at the weekends for example. But you know what, the latest celebrity endorsed diet, usually cooked by their personal chefs, probably isn't going to be that functional for you. We're busy girls Betties, so we need food that fits into our schedules and that works!

So this week we're gonna focus on getting you guys eating right in a way that is sensible and (drum roll) that you won't want to give up after a week! Imagine that!! Get the food sorted, and you'll have so much less t worry about. Perfect!!

Until next time Betties! x
