Hence why I chose to call my blog RESOLVE. I can resolve to make little changes one at a time...anytime. I can constantly better myself and my life this way.
Back to the point: my resolve this week was to eat more fruit. Scratch that. What does that mean? What does that look like? I bought a ton of fruit this week and don't want the bananas browning by the end of the week like they so often have just because I didn't specify what I meant.
No. This week, I gave myself a rule - a fruit had to be included with every meal. Specific. It's not a diet, but it's an improvement as it means I'm eating at least 3 servings a day. It means if I rush off to Chick-Fil-A on my lunch break, I'm not filling up on those yummy waffle fries and forgoing other important nutrients. I'm not depriving myself, but I'm still helping myself. It means when I ordered pizza on Monday because I was home alone and too lazy to cook, I ate a banana while I awaited the delivery - I don't have to feel like the whole evening was junk!
|These will be finished before that brown goes any further!|
Did I lose five pounds? I don't know. I'm not watching the scale or stressing myself out. I'm simply resolving to do something better for my body and have peace in the awareness that beneficial things are going in every day.
What's your resolve this week?
