Confession: I'm addicted to cereal. I could probably eat an entire box of honey nut cheerios in one sitting. Thank goodness I've never gone that far, but I do binge on cereal way too often.
I did it today...out of boredom...and that hungry feeling in my belly after trying to start this lifestyle change thing for the umpteen millionth time. It's so disappointing to see myself succumb to these feelings after having such motivation to start living healthy. BUT, I will pick myself up, dust off and move forward.
I wish I could pinpoint that one thing that will make me stop and think before jumping into a huge bowl of cheerios again. Yes, I know I should think about my goals and how "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" but during that moment when I lose self-control, that's not what I focus on.
So, the key must be to, STOP, take a step back and let a few moments pass before pouring a bowl. Being mindful is such a key action step to a healthy lifestyle.
