It has been less than a week since my last post, and I’m already feeling like a different person. The first few days are always the easiest, right? You feel like you can accomplish anything, you start to see some progress, you get mega-focused, but as days turn into weeks or months, that’s when it gets the hardest. That’s when the challenge sets in. That’s When you stop looking at how far you’ve come and start looking at how much farther you have to go.
In a heart-to-heart moment, my SIL gave me these words of encouragement.
“Start by loving every version of your journey to the very BEST you. Don’t think of what you are giving up, but what you are gaining.”
And it’s so true! We’re so quick to focus on what we’re cutting out and restricting ourselves from, that we lose the purpose of what we’re doing in the first place! Otherwise, I wouldn’t be sitting here writing this blog and you wouldn’t be sitting there reading it!
So, think about small goals in getting to the biggest goal. Focus on the one day at a time. Focus on all the good you’re doing for yourself and how good you’re going to look and feel when you get there. Let’s be gentle on ourselves, shall we?
OK, now let’s talk food!
I know that just as it’s important to keep my meals clean, I also have to keep them interesting. My husband and I have been having a great time playing with new recipes and flavors. Not only am I lucky that he picked me, but I’m also lucky that he’s also an amazing cook and is always willing to try out new flavors and recipes.
