Mind over matter, right? The longer I travel down this road, I realize that food is (or maybe I should say CAN BE or even HAS BEEN) my downfall. Let me stand up and tell you, I am addicted to sugar. But does that mean it has to be that way? Heck no, I'M in charge!
Since doing this 3 day Shakeology Cleanse (I'm just finishing day 2) I'm proving to myself once again that I am in charge. That when I put my mind to it, I can do anything.
I went to youthgroup tonight at my church & guess what the activity was? Dutch oven cobblers and ice cream in a bag. Guess what? I had fun without eating it, I even helped make the ice cream. I came home to a smoothie (chocolate with strawberry) and a feeling like no other. (Along the lines of, "I AM WOMAN!") Contrast this to the way I feel (physically and emotionally) when I overeat or give in to one too many temptations. Yuck!
So ... sugar. I declare myself the boss of you. You will not control my thoughts. You will not make me feel bad. I can enjoy you in moderation, at my choosing (not the other way around.) Take that.
