I deserve not to freak out as summer comes to an end, rather enjoying one moment at a time. Some people don't even get 2 weeks of vacation at a time. I deserve to breathe.

I deserve BETTER than a "slutty brownie". Seriously. They're SO good. But I still deserve better than that. So I don't need to eat it. Put it down, Jenn. Slutty Brownie. Ugh.

*if you're on Pinterest, you can find the recipe for Slutty Brownies - they are a brownie casserole of chocolate chip cookie dough, lined with double stuffed oreos, topped with fudge brownie mix. And my friend made them this weekend. And they they proceeded to mock me from their slutty brownie plate all weekend. Stupid brownies.

I deserve better than you brownies!

I learned about positive "mantras" from running. When times get tough or if I really need to buckle down and focus on something, I'd often find that a mantra would just pop into my head and it would be exactly the thing that I needed to hold on to to push me through.

While running CRAZY miles and eating like a fiend to match the calories I was burning every week, I got in the habit of saying "I deserve..." and following that up with some high calorie food because I felt like anyone who ran that far deserved to: drink beer, eat donuts, binge on chocolate, etc. etc. etc. And I was very kind with myself about all of those things "I deserved". I didn't spend time on feeling guilty at all about eating anything because I was working so hard to do it.

Well, mantras work for all kinds of things, and since returning to calorie counting this week I have a new one. Calorie counting is JUST as hard as running 26 miles. Seriously. So instead of saying "I deserve to eat cheese" I've replaced that with:

"I deserve to feel thin"
"I deserve to lose weight"
"I deserve to fit into smaller sizes"
"I deserve to like what I see in the mirror"

And so on. So far, it's working. And MAYBE it might get me through this first weekend. Let's hope so.

What do you deserve?
