Right now, in this very moment, would you say you are "on track" or "off track" with your diet?
What if I told you that very mindset of all or nothing is what is setting you up to fail, time and time again?
If you're not sure whether this approach to eating is running your life, let me know if this sounds like you ...
Yesterday, you've fallen "off track." You ate a bite of bread that you was on the "bad foods" list. You say, "fuck it," and eat the whole damn loaf. But it's ok, because tomorrow you'll start again. (how many Day 1's have you had? I know I can't even count them in my 32 years of being).
You wake up the next day and eat the healthy, clean breakfast you had planned.
Lunch comes around and you'd really like the turkey, avocado sandwich at the nearby cafe. But, you've heard you shouldn't be eating gluten or carbs if you want to lose weight, so you decide to be "good" and get the salad.
The day gets busy and you get hungry. You wait too long, your blood sugar drops and you finally eat your cucumbers and hummus. But, you're ravenous and scarf them down before you can even enjoy the taste.
You get home. You're tired. You cook the healthy dinner outlined in your meal plan. You find yourself picking at the ingredients as you cook, eating while standing...
You finally sit and try to make yourself enjoy it. But, you're not satisfied.
You go back to the pantry and allow yourself to indulge in a little of whatever was "off limits" to begin with. Of course you can't stop at a little bit. You end up saying "fuck it" (again) and keep eating with the goal of "starting all over again tomorrow." (Haven't heard that one before 😒)
The rush feels good for a second, and then it hits you…
Since everyone has been commenting on how tasty my stuffed peppers looked, I decided to share the recipe on the blog with all of you lovelies! It would be totally selfish of me anyway to keep them to myself since they are HEAVEN, crazy EASY and uber HEALTHY.
The best thing about these peppers: they trick your brain into thinking you're having your guilty taco pleasure ;) #WINNING
Try them and let me know what you think!
When you love yourself, you want to treat your body like a temple. Period. 💯
Although I allowed myself to indulge in ALL the joys of the holidays (everything in moderation, right?), I felt like 💩 after. So I committed to a 3 day reset. No crazy food rules. No restriction. No counting calories. Just lots of nourishing food, detoxifying yoga, positive affirmations & good sleep. Believe me people ... you DON’T have to go to crazy measures to FEEL GOOD!!!
My 3-day results:
-👇🏼 3 lbs.
- Absolutely no bloat left (you can tell how puffy I was to start)
- Energy is back
- Body feels tight
- Slept LIKE A FREAKING BABY
Make yourself a priority. It’s not selfish. It’s your duty. When you feel good about yourself, you have more to give others & the world around you. ❤️🔥👊
Thanks for stopping by! It means a lot to me.
