Can we just start with how cute is that little guy.
So much positivity. xoxo
I really mean that.
Yes, I don't eat meat, but I eat bread, and cupcakes and chips and all that yummy good stuff.
Finding a balance was supposed to be easy I thought.
I had a good grasp on it for awhile and then, I fell off the wagon.
I was scared of admitting to myself that I had a bad relationship with food.
That I thought I had it, and didn't.
I used to be so good with my food.
I was that annoying friend that couldn't eat anything when we went out to eat.
Salads were my life and I had certain places I loved to go to.
I felt my best when I had a better relationship with food.
I also don't know exactly what cupcake caused me to fall off the wagon.
Glad to be getting back on though.
I CAN NOT express this enough.
I had a really good friend of mine loan me hers (thanks Lydia)
and man did it really get the gears moving.
Go browse around your favorite bookstore and grab a cookbook or two :)
Maybe use a cute and fancy marker, and get a cute calendar.
When do I start? UGH my new job. All the food. I was already finding excuses.
But find that date and set it.
Mine was October 3, because it was a Monday and I figured let's really make it a Monday.
To help me meal prep.
I truly think when I wrote it all down it kept me more accountable.
The we passed by a cupcake shop.
Seriously, would one cupcake hurt I thought?
But, I walked by and was actually sad.
So while they napped I wrote how I really wanted that cupcake.
How I had to eat something else that was not as satisfying.
Finding a healthy balance with food can be difficult.
You will struggle. I did and still do.
You will cry. Trust me I shed those tears.
Be happy when you reach small goals. Go on do that happy dance!!
Be sad when you have to give up your favorites. (bye chocolate)
But trust me when I say 10 days later you will thank yourself.
Your body will.
You only have one, might as well make sure its healthy.
Have you ever done Whole30?
I'm loving the journey even if it is a hard one.
