It happens. Even to me. A little pitty party. Perhaps a seed of entitlement?
I eat well as far as healthy most of the time. I enjoy something yummy, we occasionally go out to eat, Some of my favorite foods are chicken wings, Beef Briscut, Apple Crisp, Berries, and Pumpkin pie. I don't drink soda except super rare treats, I eat at least 2 pounds of vegetable most days, I eat the same breakfast, snacks, and lunch 5 days a week. (sometimes weekends too).
Here's the thing I don't "LOVE" all that food. I eat my eggs and veggies as cold bricks in the morning. I eat a dry boring head of romaine lettuce on my way to pick up Anna from school. I drink 1 or 2 protein and water shakes a day depending on if I'm too busy to chew something. I nuts and fruit make up the rest of my day until I get home. Sarah does up dinner most of the time. And we eat some sort of chicken 80% of the time with a huge vegetable serving.
I have my moments that I wish every meal was super indulgent (usually I missed a meal when I feel that way!).
I'm not saying you need to eat like me. You do you. I still have improvements I will make over the years.
I'm sharing this because I believe this is most likely a common humanity thing. Moments of entitlement. The "why do I have to try so hard?"
For me and food these moments are very short because I have dozens of compelling reasons to work hard on nutrition and health. Maybe you have a couple of mine too. I find listing them really encourages me. Maybe this will help you start your own list.
I eat healthy because...
This thought struck me this weekend so I thought I would share if it could be helpful to you. Do you have a strong reason I didn't mention? Are you ready to food prep so you can have a good week with me?
Hope to hear from you soon!
