Ever get that “Rebellious” mindset with food?
Those days where you feel it’s just not fair!
It seems like for the moment you just don’t care. You are going to have whatever it is. And you are going to have as much as you want! Darn it. You DESERVE it!
Dieting is just getting old!
But then you feel horrible afterwards.
And it does kinda set you back a bit from your weight loss goals.
We all have that happen.
You can feel doomed by the choices. So why try anymore the rest of the day? You might as well go ALL IN and just keep on that path the rest of the day and start anew tomorrow.
But that is not true!
You can decide to SAVE the DAY at any point.
Yes, you really can.
You are NOT DOOMED by it.
Every day does not have to be the same.
There are some days where I have had that happen too. And I’ve learned that if I want I can actually SAVE the DAY.
Whatever I ate, even though it wasn’t part of “the plan”, left me feeling full. I got to have whatever it was that I might have been depriving myself of.
So why not just prolong the time until next meal? Most likely I can go all the way to bedtime not needing anything.
I can be kind to myself and drink lots of water and herbal tea, and maybe some broth.
I can decide not to beat myself up about it.
I can decide that it’s okay to be human.
But I don’t have to wait until tomorrow to fix it.
I can do it right now, this very minute.
Sometimes you do great the rest of the day with the liquids, and then you really need to have something right before bedtime and that’s okay too.
Hunger has these ebbs and flows. It’s pretty complicated and has a lot to do with your stress, PH, intestinal flora, hormones, health, diet, and it’s all interconnected inside your body.
Just let it roll and do your best.
We just had September 11th come and go. That’s a big deal in the United States of America. So many of us wish we could have saved the day. But we can’t. We can only remember.
But YOU have the chance to save the day in your own life.
It’s your choice.
Whenever you want.
Remember that going into this weekend.
That you CAN save the day!
You are never doomed by your choices.
Never Give Up
Live Your Dream.
