I’m always preoccupied with exercise, thinking about low calorie meals, if i’ll meet my goal by summer, how i look rather than focusing on my alevel. I have my whole life to work on my body and only 3months to get good alevel grades but i cba to revise how can i change my mindset bc i know it’s so bad

Revise and when you take breaks you can do something health related?

Take breaks when you revise and during that time you can do something health related.

Be careful with becoming too obsessed with dieting and weight loss- honestly I lost so many years and so much fun and education bc of that obsession and it was not worth it at all. I didn't end up hospitalised or having nasty health effects like excess weight loss can do but just the preoccupation with it took over my life and I look and feel sad for my younger self and all I could've done instead.

That being said, a HEALTHY attitude to exercise is a good thing so I would say look at how you can get balance in your life. I'm a big believer we can have it all (you can be successful, have a good social life, feel good and confident although not necessarily in the perfect fantasy way we initially think). I hate to encourage restrictive eating and i am NOT saying revise to avoid food, but structure your days so you get a routine. School and revision are times to focus on that work, not sit and snack or walk around. Time away from that is time to exercise and fuel your body in a healthy way.

If you feel like the thoughts of food and exercising are taking over too much then please talk to someone- you're absolutely right in that you have your whole life to think about your body but your a-levels are now so take care of yourself!
