Remember to enjoy yourself
As always, this is a stressful time of year (why it always ends up like that is a mystery to me), and most days after both work and the gym I just want to snuggle up under 2-3 blankets (yes I am cold) and watch a movie or read. Anything that doesn’t require me to go outside.
But every once in a while I realise a social life might be nice too, so last week I had the coziest after work “fika” with Felicia, who I hadn’t seen in ages. The warm cup of tea and delicious pastries at Wienercaféet was the perfect end to the day.
Someone asked me on Instagram how I would want to “destroy” my training from earlier in the morning with pastries in the evening, and I just wanted to give you all a friendly reminder that pastries every once in a while doesn’t kill you! And working out should most definitely not be a punishment for what you might ate.
I think it is important to be healthy, but a life without sweets is not a life for me, but we are all different. Just find what works for you, and try to not walk around with guilt. I know too well how that sucks the joy out of moments like these.
Lots of love from Henriette Sophia
