How can I keep up my healthy lifestyle over Easter?
I have been trying to keep a healthy lifestyle, build fitness and lose a little fat. But I am surrounded by Easter treats, mum has been baking loads, have Easter eggs from family and my bf wants to get me an Easter egg too. Don't get me wrong, I love how sweet everyone is being, but all of this will just make me I'll. What should I do?

If you'd like me to be honest, I think that the healthiest lifestyles include enjoying things. So every now and then, let go of the fact that "something will make me fat" and enjoy it. I think that often as people we give up a large part of living just to stay skinny. I used to be that way, and as much as I told myself it was worth it, it really wasn't. Enjoy it, and don't go on a guilt trip over it.
That being said, there are several things you can do to avoid extra treats. Stay away from the kitchen as much as possible, as well as where things are being served. When you get things, get just a small bit. I've noticed that with a lot of sweetbreads and cakes and such, a very thin slice takes just as long to eat as a thick one and is usually just as satisfying. If not, you can even get a second (which, sliced thinly enough, is still smaller than the thick slices would be). Another trick I've learned is "sharing"--if it is a roll or whatever, just eat half of it and "share" the other half with someone else (maybe someone else who either just wants half, or someone who wants more than one).

My mum is a great cook and trust me it's helped be build my self-control not indulging in seconds or eating late at night. Plus sh's always buying snacks as well so it's easy to go to the kitchen and get some random snack.
What I do is fill my room with fruit so that I feel like getting a snack and I'm naturally lazy so I juts reach out and get a fruit instead of walking all the way to the kitchen for a snack.
