What is wrong with me?

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

No matter how many healthy foods I have prepared, I still go ahead and make something unhealthy. I think I need to start treating myself like I treat my dog. I give her breakfast and dinner. It's not about flavor. It's not about what she is craving at that moment. It's simply about sustenance. Of course, I do give her the occasional treat. She loves to nibble on bits of veggies that I throw her when I am chopping up vegetables. It's a great treat for her. She loves the crunch of fresh veggies. For myself though, I'm always thinking about what do I want to eat, what would taste good right now. I think I need to stop that. I need to determine a super regimented diet for the day and just eat for nutrition and sustenance. Eat what I am supposed to eat, when I'm supposed to eat it and hopefully finally break myself of this mentality where it's all about what I feel like eating. Food is good, but the purpose is supposed to be sustaining my body and I think I've lost sight of that.

    I had the same problem, for quite a while, until I decided to consciously change my way of thinking. It is hard. No way around that. But you have to ask yourself, challenge yourself, and even fight with yourself. Habits do not change easily or quickly. But if you squirrel up enough attitude, you can do it. Hang in there! You WILL WIN!!''

    PS - there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU!! emoticon

    Hang in there! Today is a new day. Just make the very best decisions you can and focus on the positive ones. You may find there are MANY more of those than the negative? Just don't give up and you will get to where you feel great again! emoticon
