"Keeping it REAL."
All in moderation.
Life is a balance.
Five things NOT to do.
Five things TO DO.
Let's face it. We all want to stick to something. We all want to consult someone and do what they do if they have the results we are seeking. How do we remain on any given path when there are literally thousands of self-help books, diet plans, training methods, life skill techniques, books, seminars, challenges, work outs proven to work, Bible Studies proven to keep you on task, Keto diets, cleanses, detoxes....and I could go on and on. I am exhausted trying to keep up.
Today, dear friends, I was told to start growing my own sprouts and drinking celery juice every day to cleanse my gut (nice image, right)? But in all seriousness, I know this will work and it will help with some things I am currently facing and I've done it before so I know I can do it again.
As soon as I ordered my fancy sprout bag and loaded up on celery stalks, I had an undeniable craving for Cheetos. Let's face it, I have kids and a husband in the house so as I healthy as I try to be, Cheetos are in the house. I realized at this point I was going to do one of two things.
One, I was going to "deprive" myself of the salt and strange synthetic orange color and feel pretty good about myself, or
Two, I was going to "give in" and just deal with it.
I ate the Cheetos. I had three. It's all I wanted. I trusted my own body and just kind of followed what I wanted to do and the automatic gag reflex or health meter kicked in and took over.
Let us think about this. Had I denied the Cheetos, I would likely still be obsessing about them.
I can coach the heck out of this scenario, ask myself a bunch of questions, and come up with why exactly I wanted something on the day I was about to turn my stomach into a temple of goodness only, but I will save that for my clients:)
The bottom line here is that I followed my instinct and just let it all run the natural course that needed to happen.
What's going on in your life that needs to be faced with trusting yourself, allowing yourself and loving yourself through with faith, laughter and self-love?
