Sorry this post has sort of turned into a bitch fest. On a more positive note, I can really tell that my eating habits are starting to become a real part of me, not just something I do b/c I have to. For instance today I was getting a drink at lunch & I started to fill my cup with Hi-C Fruit Punch, but then I thought about it & thought to myself "I don't think I need or want those extra empty calories" & so I switched to Coke Zero & never looked back. When I thought about it later I was very happy that I made that choice. I really need to start giving myself more credit when I make choices like that. It's little changes that will add up big time in the end. It's also those little things that sneak up on you if you DON'T watch them. For instance, say today I had gone ahead & gotten the Hi-C. Then next time I was faced with that choice I'd think "Oh it was no big deal the other day, it won't hurt if I get it again today" and then the cycle would start all over & every choice would be a "little" choice & "no big deal" but in reality those little choices do end up being a big deal. A big FAT deal - ME!
So, for today I am going to give myself a pat on the back for making a healthier choice & know that every decision I make towards being healthy, no matter big or small is a choice that leads me in the right direction.
What about you? Have you made any small, healthy choices lately that maybe you thought weren't a big deal, but when you think about it you realize that all these little choices really add up?
