Ya ever look at healthy food pics and think..."I should eat that. But I don't want to put in the work."??
...
Well you aren't alone. I STILL think that. I would buy veggies and think THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT!!!!! And alas it's STILL A struggle. But I will tell ya one thing that's helped me. Talking to myself as if I was a Child and my more mature healthier smarter and better looking self was giving me words of advice. Because lets face it...... I'm a rebel and always will be. I don't like people telling me what to do(that's why I work for myself) but FOR SOME REASON when I talk to myself this way then I listen. Does that make sense? Am I cray!? ......Dont answer that. 😂😂😂
...
Anyway my convo usually goes something like this...
"Sarah, you are a freaking Adult!!!! You CAN eat better. But WILL YOU!? Will you get up, shop for what you ALREADY KNOW you should eat or will you just sit there scrolling pics of recipes you will never try!? 🤦🤦🤦
....
So I listen. And I run to the grocery stores.... then the next battle starts...
...
"SARAH!!!!! Remember you bought those veggies!??! And now they are starting to brown because you are TOO LAZY to cut them up!? Like for realz. What a freaking waste. You are blessed beyond measure to be able to go to a store, to afford to buy that food...then you are gonna let it go to waste!? What the freak!?!?! 🤷🤷🤷
...
After that I do get up, go the kitchen & take 5 min to make a salad and remember that my LAZY brain is always trying to sabatoge me. I feel so guilty admitting all of this but maybe if you are the same then try it. And ALSO write it down. Then read it aloud. It's like an "I love you enough to put you in your place" kinda love note to yourself 😉 I hope it helps you too!!!!!
