I order the vegetable-only box from my CSA and always add fruit. Because I can.
It’s been a week since I decided to make a significant change in my choice of foods that I eat. And, happily I report, it’s actually made a difference in my health. My blood sugars are almost constantly normal. I wish I had done this sooner in my life, but (as a younger me) I don’t think I would have been able to see the benefits of these changes — and only dwell on what I thought I was missing out on.
This week I’m not going to worry about what the scale says as long as I am continuing on my exercise routine and making better food choices to fuel my health. In fact, I think I’m going to hide the scale for a while.
Everyday I set out with the best of intentions. I will accomplish my goals, I will do everything on my list, I will succeed today.
Yet I find myself dwelling on the mistakes and lost opportunities more than when I do something right. And with one small mistake I feel like throwing all my hard work in the garbage. What’s the point?
The point is to keep going and start over again tomorrow. Today wasn’t so great, but that’s OK. It’s not worth giving up all that progress.
And I am moving on from the trap of “I will reward myself with this food.” Food is not a reward (unless you are a dog) — it’s fuel to keep you healthy and strong.
