PMS stinks but at least my breath doesn’t.
That pretty much sums up my feelings for today. I don’t feel like eating clean. I don’t feel like exercising. I don’t feel like doing much except crawling up on the couch with a movie and washing a large pizza with extra cheese down with a pint of beer.
Despite having the motivation of a larva and the attitude of Eeyore I’m still on my plan 100%. I just walked to the fridge and I wanted a chewy white flour tortilla. Okay I wanted the entire package of tortillas. I even picked up the package. But this time I put it back and instead I ate eggs, a tomato, and a small banana. Small victory. Not because I felt like having the healthier choices but because, whether I like it or not, the tortillas will take me away from my goals. And honestly what is that refined flour going to do FOR my body except supply some empty calories. I should throw them out. I’m learning to separate feelings from food. Not easy. Slowly but surely I’m making some progress. I think of it this way. I don’t usually feel like flossing my teeth. In fact, I loathe flossing me teeth but I do it. Why? Because I don’t want gum disease. Or bad breath. I don’t always feel like eating nutritious whole foods but I can choose to do it anyway because I don’t want to deprive my body of what it needs. Instead of feeling deprived of junk, I mentally try to turn it around to feeling deprived if I don’t eat healthy. Easier said than done but today it worked. Clean teeth. Fresh breath. A happy body.
