don’t reward yourself with food. you’re not a dog.


i still think sometimes…i’ve done really well with my workouts this week, i can have a piece of cake and pasta at the restaurant tonight.

but it usually doesn’t work out so well.

my body and mind are different now.  i never enjoy bad foods in the moment like i want to because i think about all the work i’ll have to do to make up for it.  and my body just doesn’t like that kind of food anymore.  i still want it in my head but my stomach doesn’t.

now having said that, i still enjoy food.  just not in the amounts or kinds of foods that i used to.  instead of a giant bowl of pasta and bread as a whole meal, i’ll have a little bowl of pasta with a side salad.  instead of a giant piece of cake, i’ll share it or have a few bites.

i still slip up and eat too much or the wrong things pretty often, but i always pay for it later.  my body is just not having it anymore.  and i have more self-control.  i don’t think i’ll ever be able to control myself all the time, but i’m making strides in the right direction.
