Not your every-day Sesame Street… But…probably the real deal behind the scenes!
#youneverknow #cookiemonster #cleaneating
Whenever people say they need a reset physically, I feel like it’s often followed by:
A.) A juice cleanse (or something to the effect) and / or
B.) This strange idea that they feel they need to, in some way, torture themselves with what the perceive as horrible foods (or liquified variants)
Why is that?!
I had quite a laugh at this meme because it’s definitely a pervasive attitude. The truth is, though, it’s a little bit like drinking poison, getting sick, and then going right back to the same baseline. If it’s painful…it isn’t going to work long-term!
If kale…or other less-mainstream food items…aren’t your thing, it’s OKAY not to go that route. We want to set you up for success, after all!
I’ve always been the kind of person whose eyes WAY exceeded her stomach. Growing up, I was that kid who actually made herself sick a few times because she couldn’t stop stuffing her face.
I’m not proud but…those are the facts.
I still love food, and I LOVE eating the things I enjoy…so even though it’s mostly on the healthier end now, this STILL is totally how I feel…
I have a friend who actually does forget to eat. All the time. I couldn’t imagine it because I’m constantly thinking of food! I have snacks in the car, I take snacks on trips…hell, half my suitcase is Boom Chika Pop popcorn, chicken jerky, almonds, peanut butter crackers, apples and chia bars when I go away!
So yeah…this is totally me…
People assume that I don’t get cravings for deliciously-horribly-bad-for-me things because I generally like healthy foods. I DO, people, I’m HUMAN!
Sometimes the fight between me and my willpower is more of an epic battle than I let on. . . It’s a full-on throwdown sometimes because my sense of smell is really acute. I try to remind myself it will smell better than it will taste…but once and a while a little voice will say “bullshit!” and go on to describe it to me.
THANKS, inner voices.
The struggle is real!
