A balanced life is all about small victories, right? Or is it about cake?
I legit had a small victory this morning. I got home from my workout, ate a post workout breakfast and then I took the kids to get some donuts for breakfast. I usually always order one maple long John for myself, a chocolate glazed for sass, and an order of donut holes for the dude. Today I only ordered for the kids AND I didn’t swipe a donut hole. Not one. 💃💃
Why can’t healthy food taste as good as a maple long John? Or better yet, tres leches cake? I read a book once, I can’t currently think of the title, but the girl lost a ton of weight by imagining mold growing across her food (the book was fiction). My imagination isn’t that good. If it was, I think I would imagine that healthy food tasted ahhhhmazing, not that tasty food was growing a fungus. But I digress.
My point is that I’m still not loving the healthy food. Maybe it will come one day. Maybe my mild disgust will transpire into a love of bland chicken and steamed broccoli. Maybe…🤢
Give me your secrets! Tell me what you do to enjoy eating when you are trying to get that DGB.
If you haven’t guessed, I haven’t adopted the “eat to live” mantra. I still very much, “live to eat”.
I haven’t stepped on the scale. I don’t know if I’ve lost more weight. I do know that my clothes are fitting differently. Small victory.
I’m meeting with a nutritionist tomorrow. Maybe that will help me get my rear into gear. Maybe he/she will have some tips I can share.
Y’all, not only is my chubby soul begging for cake, my inner self is struggling with her need for instant gratification. 😬😬
I know this is a journey. I know it takes time. I know it is not going to be easy. But I’m struggling right now. Knowing that you guys are reading this is helping to keep me on track.
You da best!
