I love fruit and find that this is usually my go-to snack, mid-morning and afternoon but since I like variety I decided to add some nuts, sunflower seeds, dried raisins & cranberries this week and guess what, I love it. I don't really have a sweet tooth but I do have my occasional chocolate or ice cream craving and oh when they come knocking I better listen. See I've learned that depriving myself is not the best idea. If I do and ignore it for too long I might just end up over-indulging in the worst possible way and fall down that rabbit hole. Oh and once I'm on my way down it's a struggle to find my way out again because I love -LoVe - LOVE food!!! Emphasis on LOVE FOOD!!! So I choose baby steps I can handle. I know I can deal with the consequence of a small indulgence and not a rabbit hole food experience. No Mam, I've been there, done that and I got the body to prove it. LOL!!! Oh yeah I just couldn't resist, that's just too good not to say. Truth is I am overweight and unfit mainly because I embraced that over-indulging moments a little bit too much and last I heard laughing at yourself is great medicine. So I hope you enjoyed the laugh too... oh and if you didn't, it's ok, I'm not that funny :-) Anyway back to the serious talk, when if I crave I listen and fully assess (yeah I give it a lot of thought) if this indulgence is worth it because me, myself and I will have to carry the consequences all by myself, which means I might have to workout a little harder next time. Yep, truth is actions have consequences ladies. Now please here me when I say there are times you just have to push through and don't cave. You just have to say no that that oil drenched french fries or slap chips as we like to call it. So think it through carefully, always choose the healthiest option if there is one and be willing to put in the extra work to make up for it.
