You know how people say....

Sunday, February 27, 2011

You know how people say that it gets easier to wake up early every morning to workout once you get used to it? It hasn't gotten easier.

You know how people say that once they stop eating fast food for months, they stop craving it and it stops tasting good? It still tastes amazing every. single. time.

You know how people say their body starts craving fruits and vegetables rather than unhealthy snacks? I have yet to start drooling for carrots rather than nachos.

You know how people say you just have to find an exercise you enjoy doing and you will want to do it everyday? It is still an internal fight every time I workout.

It would be REALLY nice if any of these things could start falling into place. I fight with myself for every meal, for every run, for every squat and for every snooze of the alarm clock. I am starting to think that while my body doesn't hate fruits and veggies, it likes cheeseburgers and pizza even more. They taste just as good (if not BETTER) than they did before I even started trying to eat better. It feels GOOD to feel really full and not be left wondering, "okay am I full or am I just thirsty or do I need protein or maybe I'm just stressed, or maybe I am really hungry?"

Yeah sure, it feels good to slide right into my jeans and lose the love handles and see definition in my thighs. But sometimes I think... maybe those cheese fries taste even better.

    That's the hard part-tricking your brain into thinking that the fruits and veggies taste better all the time. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.
    Guess you just have to trick your brain into realizing that fitting into your jeans and the good feeling you get with putting good fuel into your body beats fueling up with sludgy junk food-every time. It's tough, but I hear it can be done.
    Keep at the struggle, find something you love to do, and if you don't want to work out in the morning, don't. Just change it to another time but MAKE SURE YOU DO IT!! emoticon
