Sometimes You Just Have to Eat Pizza at 4am

Ever since moving to NYC, I’ve consistently found myself stumbling into a pizza parlor around midnight, in the midst of bar hopping.

Having the option to eat anything I want, at any time I want, is one of the many reasons I love New York City.

And indulging on pizza at 2...4...sometimes 5am also means indulging on that thing I love about this magical city.

20 years later, I can tell the story about living in New York and ending my drunken nights with a slice of pepperoni pizza.

Eating pizza is enhancing my experience in a myriad of waysβ€”supplying happiness, creating stories, satisfying my taste buds, filling my belly.

Listen.

Sometimes your choices aren’t going to be aligned with your fitness goals, but they are going to be aligned with your happiness.

And happiness *is* an investment in your health, too.

If you eat pizza at midnight, you didn’t fail. You *just* ate pizza.

That’s it.

Consistency is what drives resultsβ€”not perfection. If you’re consistently working out and consistently choosing nutrient dense foods 80% of the timeβ€”you’re crushing it.

Don’t take fitness too seriously, my darlings. Let it enhance your life, not take you away from it.

....but on a more serious note, who else likes eating pizza at 2am?


To happiness and pizza,

Devi

How I stopped binge eating

Some of you may or may not know that I used to struggle with binge eating. This was something I battled for years and it took a lot of time to heal from. 

While I do plan on sharing my entire story with you eventually, I wanted to share 8 tips that have personally helped me overcome binge eating.

I also want you to keep these things in mind if you currently are struggling with an eating disorder:

  1. Do not be afraid to ask for help
  2. There is nothing wrong with you
  3. You are not alone
  4. Overcoming an eating disorder is not easy
  5. It takes time and patience to heal from, this is not an overnight process (it took me over a year to overcome) 
  6. You might do really well for a while and all the sudden find yourself slipping back up into old habits again... This is okay, this happens, just be forgiving and easy on yourself. 

Watch the video to learn 8 tips that helped me overcome binge eating: 

Be easy on yourself darling. With love,

Devon Day

How To Eat More Than One Doughnut Without Over Doing It

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've probably seen me posing with a box of doughnuts because I am doughnut obsessed. Heart eye emoji times ten.

A question I get asked frequently is: Are you going to eat that entire box of doughnuts?

I am probably one of the most indecisive people out there when it comes to food (or life in general). Picking one doughnut is just not in the cards for me - I want to try them all.

But how do I do that without overdoing it?

Thanks to Krissy Mae, the owner of Doughnuts and Deadlifts, she created this concept called doughnut graveyard. This basically means you take a small bite of each doughnut, and then after you take a bite of each doughnut you save the rest or share it with others. You can also choose your favorite doughnut from the box and finish it if you'd like.

It is a total win because you can still try every single doughnut, without overdoing it.

So that my friends is what I do with an entire box of doughnuts.

Your doughnut loving trainer,

Devi
