Old Me vs. New Me

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I can laugh now, but when I went to the grocery store to shop for my new list of items I fought with myself mentally. Literally, as I was pushing my basket through the grocery store, I stopped in the middle of the aisle. I began to psych myself out, and I asked myself “what are you doing?!”

Part of my mind was saying: What are you doing with all this fresh fruit in your basket?! You never eat fresh basil! You never eat cherry tomatoes, fruit, and steamed broccoli?! Don’t you want chips, pizza, and chocolate?!

The other part of my mind said: KEEP PUSHING! You CAN eat fresh healthy foods, and learn to love eating this way! You can do this!

So…one hour later, I walked out of the store with a basket full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meat to prepare my meals daily.

WINNER: THE NEW ME!

    I had gone through many bi-polar shopping cart days (half healthy foods; half junk foods) before it turned to just the healthy foods cart.

    Doesn't the "NEW" you seem healthy and positive? I like her more than the "OLE" you who ate junk food and was unmotivated. You're doing great! Keep it up!
