Today I'm here to talk about an attitude so many of us possess. The all or nothing attitude. You either go all for it, or you go all against it. Of course I'm going to talk about it in a food sense :)
Only this same thing happens again tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day. Until it's the weekend- then you swear Monday will be your new beginning.
I'm not here to lecture people who do this. I'm not going to sit behind my computer screen and say, toughen up princesses, get your act together.
I'm here to give a new perspective.
Every time the mentioned above happens, you feel pretty guilty. No debate.
What an awful feeling to have when you're eating something you love so much?
This is the problem I have with diets. They're too strict, you can't enjoy food and if they give you a cheat day... boy are you going to cheat! That's for a whole other post for another time though.
Today I'll simply say this. Accidentally eaten something you don't think fits your new healthy bill? Don't sweat it. Maybe even enjoy it. Then, every minute is a fresh start, heck every second is a fresh start! As soon as that cupcake has traveled down your oesophagus and is churning away in your stomach right before the intestines (ok Steph, stop now!), you can move on with life, free of guilt, with a hint of a smile on your lips because that was one damn good cupcake!
You have the strength and ability to leave the rest of the cupcakes where they are because your not cheating on your diet, or yourself, or any one else, everyone deserves a treat- the only diet I would ever recommend is one of moderation.
I think I've said what I've needed and I hope it helps some of you- I'm quite sure we've all experienced this attitude, all at different degrees and I hope we can all one day come to the personal acceptance of accepting our 'accidents' and embracing every new second! Life's too short to do otherwise! :)
See you next time! :D
