“Monday comes and I always start the week so well.
Yet as soon as ‘life’ gets in the way
I go into that good-bad
Mess things up for myself
And I feel I’m back to square one”
^^^ Sound familiar?
You see, this pretty much came from a one member of my body transformation programmes
And even though she KNOWS she can have some cake at her kid’s birthday party
A few vinos at the weekend
Enjoy a nice meal out with the hubby without feeling guilty
And even have her beloved CHEESE (without fearing weight gain)
She CHOOSES to feel guilty
Chooses to ‘believe’ that having the cheese instead of say, some ‘healthy for snacking’ almonds is ‘better’
So ends up thinking ‘I’ve failed’
But here’s the thing…
Have you ever looked at how many calories are in almonds compared to cheese?
I mean, I’m not saying is cheese is ‘better’
^^^ Context is key
But if BANNING and DEPRIVING yourself of your beloved cheese (and port)
For the sake of some ‘better and more healthy’ almonds
Means that you end craving…binging…and feeling like you failed (so you give up and self sabotage all of your hard work again)
Could the cheese be the better option for you?
Well, this might be an eye opener for you
Now, it might be a bit cheesey
But I think it’s ‘grate’
As it shows you what 160 calories of cheese vs almonds looks like :-)
