... Do it yourself.
I don't feel good today. I am exhausted from a hard week at work. My head is congested. I have this strange pain in my side - going on three days now. So... did I want to get up and cook something healthy today? Well no, I didn't. But I am faced with a dilemma, eat junk or get up and fix something healthy.
In the end, I opted to fix some taboli with my red quinoa. I don't know where that strength came from, or why that determination is there, it just is. I really don't want to "be bad". For the first time in a long time I didn't use feeling bad as an excuse to eat junk. Usually if I wasn't feeling up to par, I would comfort myself by eating something yummy but unhealthy. So this is a milestone.
I think the bottom line for me is, I really want this. We are eating out with my parents tonight and my husband's parents tomorrow night. I know that is going to set the scales back a few pounds but I don't want to eat out and have to be thinking about calories. So instead of throwing in the towel like I normally would, I am just trying to do my best to balance my weekend eating with healthy food.
There is no one else to answer to but me. There is no one else to cook healthy for me (I could ask my hubby but he has other chores). If I want to do this right, and I do, I have to do it myself. Trust myself, rely on myself to do this...for myself.
I own this!
