You know that time that you said you were going to eat healthier and cook more and not eat crap? And then you immediately start craving all of the horrible junky food?
Yeah. That was me today. Everything was fine until I got home from work. And what do I hear?
“Hey babe, do you want to get Chinese food for dinner?” *facepalm*
BUT. As I mentioned before, this journey is not only about building a healthier lifestyle, but doing so in a *healthy* manor. Meaning – in short – that junk food is ok. That everything in life is nothing more than a balancing act. From our work/life balance, our friends/family/significant other balance . . . and including exercise, food, and taking care of your body.
More importantly, the thing to take away from all of this today is that it is ok to slip up. It’s true that better choices should be made, but it’s more true that nothing will come from beating yourself up over mistakes or poor choices in your journey. What is important is to make sure that tomorrow you try again. Keep trying. Don’t give up.
