All it takes to get on the right path is ONE step! That FIRST step....and we hesitate. We can't until we finish all the "bad" food in the house.(Is food really bad? A thought for another journal!) We can't because of the kids/dog/mate/neighbor/party next week/major holiday/hangnail on my left thumb....we can't because of our work schedule/kids' schedules/WHATEVER...but, I am telling YOU and, in the process, telling ME...that WE CAN!!!
We can pack our lunch/snack/whatever...or just wait until we get home (unless you have a medical reason not to, then you are back to planning a packed lunch or snack). There are tons of websites detailing the healthiest choices at each and every fast food restaurant....all we have to do is take the STEP of ordering those options at the drive thru window.
Oh, and the old excuse of "I messed up lunch, might as well start TOMORROW"...ummm NO! Why eat even MORE calories that we have to work off? Make dinner a success and move on!
And, that, folks is what I did tonight. I have been struggling with eating inappropriately on my night shifts, but tonight, I took the STEP, made the CHOICE, of waiting to eat!! If I can do it, I KNOW YOU CAN!!! I have faith in all of you!!!
