I'm reading the self-improvement book, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Dr. Susan Jeffers (thanks Keli) and it is changing my life...just like it is suppose to! I'm loving it. It's full of educational tips and taking charge of your life advice that I have heard before in my lifetime, but with awesome exercises and activities to help you start NOW! I'm in love with Chapter 4 titled: Whether you want it or not...it's yours. It has 7 definitions of taking responsibility, I love them all, but #6 (Taking responsibility means figuring out what you want in life and acting on it) is awesome for us who are trying to change our bodies. It states, "Set your goals--then go out and work toward them. . .Check out your body. Determine what you need to do to create what looks and feels healthy . . . then make it happen." I love this advice. It's totally true. When we eat something that doesn't "fit" we can't feel guilty about our choice, that'll get us nowhere; instead, take responsibility for your decision made and next time choose one that you'll be happy with in the end.
I chose to eat a chocolate caramel pretzel pie when I was finished with my 30 day detox and it made me sick. I wasn't guilt-ridden by my choice to spoon it into my face, but after the fact I said to myself, no more. I don't want to feel sick when I was feeling so well!
Hope you all are feeling well! Love yourself!
