"I vowed not to eat fast food, but Aunt Flo was coming to visit and I decided Taco Bell wouldn't hurt!"
"I wish I had your resolve!"
"I had to, I was starving!"
"I know, I know, I know, I couldn't resist that damn Coke!"
"I gave blood today, I deserved it!"
"popcorn, forgot to measure was glued to the screen...Also, I'm sure measuring cups are illegal in movie theatres!"
Cinnamon Roll "It was bad, but tasted so good!"
Do any of these look familiar? They should I have taken some of them directly from the food logs on the CrossFit Michiana Website! Every one of us is great at making excuses for why we are eating and drinking what we are. Myself included! I can come up with just about any reason to eat a sugary carby snack that I like to call my feel good food! I feel really good while I am eating it, and for about 10 minutes afterwards. Then, I get mad. I get mad because I let down my resolve. I didn't stick with my plan of choosing a healthy lifestyle.
Yeah you heard it, it's a choice. You can CHOOSE to eat healthy or you can CHOOSE not to! Either way there is one person and one person only who makes that choice for you....YOU!!! Don't blame it on your kids, your husband, your significant other....YOU are responsible for what YOU put in YOUR mouth! I have never seen anyone's kids stuffing cookies down their parents throats! I have never seen anyone's husband refusing to eat a nicely cooked steak dinner with roasted vegetables and a colorful salad.
What's your excuse? I mean choice? Is it time to make that change in your life?
