What Did You Eat Today and Why?
Wednesday, March 09, 2016
I've been eating clean for over 4 years now, and it has really paid off for me. I've developed a pretty good habit of staying disciplined through out the week and then treating myself here and there on the weekends. It wasn't until lately that I've learned to be grateful for the habits that I've developed.
I have a few co-workers that sit around me that go out to lunch twice maybe three times a week to go be "bad" as one put it. They go out for burgers and fries, huge burrito bowls or pizza and pasta. Each time I witness all the negative affects of their "bad" choices when they come back. So here is the thing I'm grateful for. They have stopped inviting me to go, because, I've turned them down so many times. I've finally come to the point that I would rather feel good mentally and physically than to give into what I think my taste buds want. Sitting at my desk after a heavy meal feeling bloated, sleepy and guilt ridden is not something I want to experience anymore.
So I have this question then. I know why I chose to eat healthy, but what makes us still eat "bad" food even when we know the negative out come? I definitely still have my moments. How do we justify that those foods are worth it? When I come up with the answer I'll let all of you know.
