The Cleanse my eating has gone downhill. Ok, I should be less hard on myself...I have picked up healthier eating habits and I've cut way back on eating meat. But I am frustrated because I know how healthy I am capable of eating and, in turn, how good I'm capable of feeling.
I am motivated by goals and challenges, but I can't take on a major cleanse every time I want to eat a little better. Luckily I'm also motivated by treats. I was dreading eating a something healthy for dinner even though I knew I should. My internal angel and devil were bickering about what would be on the menu, a salad or a pizza, when I came to a fabulous comprise...The Goddess! My friend Jen recommended Annie's Goddess Dressing and if you haven't tried it, you must. So yummy. As a treat for eating the salad, I was "allowed" get Goddess dressing. I realize that this sounds like a Little House on the Prairie type treat (oranges for Christmas!?) but we have plenty of dressing already and I'm trying to be frugal these days, so it was a treat. And my little tricked worked. I'm finishing my salad now, feeling happy that I ate healthy, but also feeling content because of The Goddess.
What is your motivating treat?
