Usually at this time of year your social network apps become flooded with delicious looking chocolates, followed by guilt inducing posts of how many calories you need to burn to work off that egg.
As mums, we have enough pressure and guilt placed upon us. We face daily pressure to be the perfect mums, juggle all the balls and oh the guilt should we decide to do something for ourselves!
Then there is this expectation placed upon us to ‘get our bodies back’ and ‘be bikini body ready’…..😓🙄
Why do we have all this pressure and expectation placed upon us?
What has happened to being able to have your chocolate and eat it to?
Personally for me, Easter isn’t about feeling guilty at the number of chocolates I have consumed. Yes, I will eat chocolate this Easter (in fact I will likely eat a lot), however I lead a healthy and active lifestyle and one day of eating some chocolate isn’t going to be the end of the world.
I have hit on a key word there – LIFESTYLE – what kind of lifestyle would it be if you couldn’t enjoy foods with your family?
At the end of the day it comes down to balance. On Monday I will continue on my health and fitness journey and I certainly won’t be trying to calculate how many calories I need to burn to work off that chocolate!
So my message to you is enjoy your Easter. Spend time with your family and participate in all that makes your families lifestyle. Eat that chocolate if you want to!
