License or Permit
Monday, March 24, 2014
I had an incredible week: an awesome long run and personal record in my 5K time.
Then … desserts happened. 3 days in row. I only tracked one of them. I am not proud but I felt like is deserved the treats because I worked so hard at my running. I secretly hope the scale will slap me for my indiscretions. If I did get away with it the next time I will feel like I can get away with it again. It’s a vicious cycle.
I learned a lot from this. I don’t deserve unlimited desserts. I deserve a healthier relationship with food. I deserve to be off the cycle of self-sabotage. I deserve a healthy body and a strong mind. I am not tricking anyone. I have revoked my license to eat whatever I like when I committed to a healthy lifestyle. What I have now is a permit (permission) to a treat, track it, own it and enjoy it guilt free.
