If you are trying to eat better because somebody told you to, or because you think you should, you’re setting yourself up to fail.
You might be excited and motivated to eat healthy today, and that’s great!
This is how it always happens: Motivation abandons us when we need it most.
And then one “ehh” choice becomes three bad choices which become “crap, I failed at my diet! I’m a loser. Okay, I’ll just try harder next month…”
If you are committed to this goal of eating healthier, you need a DAMN good reason to start eating healthier in the first place!
Here are some examples you can build off of:
Having a great reason WHY can be the light in the darkness that helps you navigate the maze of temptation.
Have your Big Why, and remind yourself of it constantly!
Write it down, put it on a post-it note on your bathroom mirror, staple it to your forehead.
But have a REASON you’re committing to change.
It will be crucial when life starts to get busy next week and you want to give up.
