I had an amazing revelation today: if I cheat on this "diet" I'm only cheating on myself. No one else is keeping score. It's not like I have to hide it from anyone. I get tired on this healthy journey. Who cares if I cheat?
I am accountable to me for the actions I do to my body. And, here's the great revelation part, some days I just don't care. Yeah, that's right. I want to cheat, I can cheat.
Then I remember that quote "When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long." Why did I hold on for so long? Because my life is getting better as I get healthier. I get healthier as I eat less calories and actually care about what goes into my body. That's why I've held on for so long even though I'm tired of eating healthy and controlling my portions and getting to the gym everyday. That's why I held on--because it's worth it. All that work does pay off.
So who am I hurting if I cheat? Me. And I care enough to keep myself accountable.
