Hello everyone, So I thought I’d do my first little happy and healthy post!
I feel within the world at the moment a lot of females and males are pressured by media and the aim to look a certain way and be the so called ‘perfect’ looking person. I don’t think people on social media aim to go about causing these pressures on people on purpose, but I feel as though Media can show unrealistic representations and not a lot of people promote loving who you are. However, I do know thats some areas of social media are great for motivation and there are some wonderful people out there promoting healthy living, but my point is a lot of people do struggle from it as well.
I’m not going to write loads and loads within this post talking about how I do this, that and the other to keep healthy, because one Its just my own opinions and two I do struggle with keeping healthy and fit and I just aim to take every day as it comes, when it comes to fitness.
I believe we should never set goals for ourselves based on an image you may see on the internet, because your body is yours and its unique to you. We don’t all look the same, and if you are happy and healthy thats all that matters. And remember we all have different Genes, different curves, different bums, different love handles, long legs, short legs, big boobs, small boobs… and no matter what you do and how you work out you will always have your own unique body, and everyone is beautiful. I believe when it comes to fittness its really about finding what works for you, and its taken me ages to find things that work for me. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT.
I think its good to surround yourself with people that make you smile and laugh a lot, and be able to talk about how you feel!! And eating in a way that suits you. Eating has such a huge impact on how you feel, and its important to make sure your eating enough too. Eating with a healthy balance doesn’t mean never eating the things you love…I think its about making sure your eating enough and eating meals full of nutrients and goodness. I’m no expert at all and I’m still learning a lot about my body and what things work for me when it comes to food..but the one thing I do know is eating healthy makes a huge difference to how you feel.
I have days where I don’t feel motivated and feel fed up and then I try and remember how relaxed and happy I feel after doing a little bit of exercise, and its just what works for me. I think it’s good to try out things that work for your body! And as long as you feel happy and listen to how your body is doing, thats the main thing. And by no means am I saying you have to work out to be healthy because thats not it at all. I just wanted to share a few of my views as I think it needs to be spoken about more.
I thought I’d end this post with a few lovely places you can go to, that do amazing food! This is within Brighton but each restaurant has lots all over the UK so I highly recommend going and trying out their yummy foods!
Iydea – Does the most yummy food, you pick what you want and create a bundle of yumminess!
Love Fit Cafe– Love Fit cafe is great for after gym work outs or just everyday, as they do loads of great meals! and the menu lists your macro nutrients!! (lists your carbs, fats and proteins). Their smoothies are great too!
Pho- Pho is a healthy Vietnamese Restaurant that does such tasty dishes!! I also seriously recommend their green smoothie mojito!
Pizza Express– Pizza Express do some amazing pizzas and salads! and they now do vegan,gluent free and wheat free pizzas! This is the goat cheese and caramelize onion salad pizza, it was delicious!
The Chilli Pickle– Incredible Curries and Dishes that you have to try!!!
Now these are just a few places that do lovely food, but Bill’s is also top of my list, and I can’t keep away! and if you happen to live in Brighton and you know where Sydney Street is (with Dirty Harry’s) You need to go try an Acai Smoothie at The Guarana Bar!!! They supply a diverse range of premium guaraná based products from Brazil and provide high quality unique superfoods!!
Anyway, going out for food can be pricey so I tend to go to Infinity Food’s the health food store to get organic yummy ingredients to make dishes at home!! Heres a picture of my usual breakfast at the moment now its winter, a bowl of porridge to keep me going and large smoothie!
Thanks for taking the time to read this post!!
Love, India Moon.
