A funny thing happened this week. With the help of a new burst of resolve I adhered very closely to my program. I ate my planned meals, no deviations. I didn't have any in-between meal snacks. I didn't eat any candy. I didn't drink any soda. I exercised. And, I still had a good day.
-die of starvation from not snacking
-regret eating my packed lunch instead of fast food
-collapse from exhaustion from my workout
-fall asleep at my desk from lack of caffeine
-go into a chocolate deprivation shock
-have a great day
-feel good about myself and my choices
-got everything done and still had plenty of time for me after I worked out
So, now I know that those inner voices that tell me that I NEED chocolate, I NEED caffeine, I NEED a snack, I NEED fast food or I NEED to skip my workout are nonsense. I can have a perfectly happy & fulfilled day without any of those things.
