Sometimes, despite the progress made, there still is a part of me that resists the changes I heartily embrace.
I’ve been following a particular way of eating that’s working really well for me because 1) I feel great, 2) I feel great and 3) have I mentioned I feel great?
And, I’ve lost lbs and a bunch of inches. Clothes are looser, I have more energy, and, most of the time, I follow “the plan” very closely. I still go out to eat with Hubbs sometimes, but I know what works for me and I like how I’m feeling too much to blow it on foods that aren’t worth it.
Also I’ve been exercising and am seeing uexpected benefits … when I have to scuttle under the deck to wrangle pool equipment, I have more stamina to kneel down there than I did in summers past. Thank you Melt it off with Mitch! I can chase, catch and lift the grand kids with ease. Thank you The Firm! Clothes are looser; I sleep better than ever and I’m enjoying shopping in my closet again. Thank you to my Treadmill!
But every once in a while, your body gives you a message that you can’t ignore. It’s a craving, a little voice that says, “I need this.”
Normally, I ignore it. Usually I just push through. But today, today I indulged.
No, it wasn’t chocolate, ice cream or anything from the sweet category.
It wasn’t chips, salsa or popcorn either.
What was it?
Pierogies with sauteed onions.
I made them, I savored them and I enjoyed every last morsel-age of them.
And I’ve learned that it’s OK to indulge in a craving now and then; it won’t derail my progress, I won’t gain back the 15lbs I’ve already lost and, contrary to past beliefs, my pants won’t explode in the morning.
What have you indulged in lately?
