A Vlog: Healthy Chicks Eat Burgers Too (Or Insert Your #1 Indulgence)

Happy Superbowl Sunday ladies! Today’s post is a Vlog (my second Vlog EVER actually) because I wanted to share with you something that I get questions about all the time: how to handle “over-indulging” without all the guilt that comes with it, or feeling like you “ruined everything.”

I was inspired to create a Vlog after chatting over coffee yesterday with the lovely Cait from Cait Plus Ate at Daybreak. (Side Note: If you don’t know Cait already, you should totally check out her blog especially if you are a fellow foodie or live in the New England area.)ย She just did her first Vlog (and totally rocked it) and she gave me the courage to give it another shot!

After all, I am very passionate about this topic and want to reach as many readers (or shall I say viewers) as possible. Plus, I feel much more confident this time around, judging by my last video where I was a tad nervous.

OK, 1, 2, 3…ACTION!

What are your favorite indulgences? Do you let guilt get the best of you?

    Man, the more I read and now HEAR from you, the more I can’t wait for our get together in a couple of weeks. we share SO MANY of the same ‘truths’ about food nowadays, and a fairly similar past relationship with food too. it’s crazy. I absolutely agree — one ‘imperfect’ meal now and then will NOT undo all of your hard work in any way. Doing it OFTEN? Well, maybe. But on the rare occasion you do treat yourself to something you don’t normally go for? Savor it, enjoy it, HAVE it, and then move on. No deprivation, no guilt after, none of that. It can be done!

    @Caitlin It was lovely…I felt like I’ve known you for years…so easy to talk to ๐Ÿ™‚ And I still can’t believe I randomly met your parents, and OUR PARENTS met each other. Too funny!

  6. Rachel @Healthy Chicks Says:

    @Sara Thanks Sara. I used to try to be “perfect.” So much so that it turned into restriction and guilt and scale obsession. The #1 problem with that was: I wasn’t LIVING! Thanks for watching!

    @Thanks Jo! Exactly, if you eat well 90% of the time and LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, then you learn to give it what it needs even if that means a splurge every once in a while
