What would the fit me say yes to or do?


Sunday, June 10, 2012

I had a bad day yesterday eating wise. I started so well, planned what I would eat but then went out, had several drinks, ate a 500+ calorie sandwich and several macaroons and small cupcake! Not very clean eating at all!!

I was thinking of what to do and came up with the idea 'what would the fit version of me do'? Would the fit version of myself eat loads of sweet things when she wasn't hungry? Say yes to another beer because it was free, even though it would mean going over her planned 2 drink limit? NO SHE WOULDN'T! So now I am going to create an image in my head what the fit version of me, Fit SJ, would do and say yes to.



I want to be the strongest, healthiest, most confident and happiest version of myself! I want to be fit and not worry about my weight or be self-conscious of my jiggly fat bits. I want to wear clothes like the girl in this pic and be able to wear cool clothes I would have never dared to wear before.

So hopefully next time I am faced with the dilemma of whether to have that chocolate treat, the extra sugar in tea, the fatty 'treat' on offer, I will remember to ask what will the Fit SJ say yes to.

Also, I've noticed that I have been too easy on myself. First came the bigger portions, then the eating of desserts and sweet treats. Now I have put on several lbs. I ought to be saying 'NO', you don't need the extra helpings of food. 'NO' to the sugary snack, and so on. I love to cook and have loads of things I want to make, mostly healthy but some not that healthy. I made my own pizza dough last week for my new bf. It was lovely! Recipe is from the Hugh guy behind River Cottage - http://wildinthekitchen.wordpr

I wanted to have it today but decided that actually I don't deserve to make a pizza. I've eaten far too much and not clean enough to sanction it, so decided that if I eat very clean and under 1,500 - 1,600 calories for 3 days, then I shall treat myself to an asparagus, onion and goats cheese pizza. But only when I have done enough healthy eating to deserve it!

Must remember, what would the fit version of myself do? Eat sensibly, not too much, nothing too fattening or sugary! And not feel guilty because of her actions!

    Those were some words I really needed to hear right now. Fit me would not eat a candy bar, a chocolate dipped biscotti, ice cream, and chocolate chips IN THE SAME DAY!

    I like this idea!
It is always so difficult to stop eating when you are with friends. Whenever I find myself in this type of situation I make sure that I drink a glass of water before having another drink. This keeps me full and solves the drinking too many calories dilemma!

    DESIDERATA~GIRL, I love your post.
I could have easily written some of those words myself.
Good intentions get side tracked so easily. *sigh*

I like the idea of imaging what the fit version of ourselves would do.
She already lives inside us and breathing life into that vision
makes her very real and powerful.

Iíll be borrowing your idea to give more power to my own goals.
Thank you!!
