I hope this week has treated you well and you have something fun planned for the weekend. I am spending this weekend at the lake. It’s a girls lake trip. I’ve talked about before how I tend to lose my mind and not do very well when I am out of my normal routine or on vacation. Last time I was at the lake, I ate pie. There is this wonderful place to eat in Marble Falls called Bluebonnet Café. They are among the top 10 pie places in Texas. I’m going to rate them probably number 2 on my list.
Anyway, I want to talk about mindfulness. I’m thinking that I’m not really going to want pie. I just think that I want pie because I’ve always wanted pie before. Does that make sense? This time, however, I’m going to make a conscious decision to take care of myself. I know if I eat the pie, I’m going to feel like total crap. Why do I want to feel bad? I don’t. So this time I’m going to make sure I take my healthy snacks and eat those instead. I’m going to be mindful of the moment that I’m in and listen to what my body really wants, not to want my brain thinks it wants. Being able to love myself and accept where I’m at in my journey will lend itself to keeping me on track in my healthy eating, low carb goals. IF I REALLY want the pie, I will eat it. But, I don’t think I will. I think I’m going to be satisfied with the company around me and my snacks that I bring. I’m determined to not derail myself this time. I will let you know how it goes when I get back.
What things derail you in your healthy eating goals? I would love to hear from you.
Talk to you soon,
