On my Transformation Tuesday post this week I wrote about a challenge I’d accepted from LiveLivingNow.com which was to consider carefully and make a conscious choice about what we fuel our bodies with.
As I wrote previously, I was doing well with the challenge, even choosing pineapple over chocolate but then stressful stuff wafted its way mysteriously into my psyche and my resolve wavered a lot.
Take Thursday as an example, I mindfully selected an egg and avocado sandwich (yup it tasted just about as fun as it sounds) and then wrestled with my inner sugar gremlins about whether I should allow myself a slice of the best carrot cake. I think it goes without saying who won that particular battle.
Then Friday – mid-morning chocolate croissant, fish and chips for lunch while out with my son and then horror of all horrors, the Ben & Jerry’s strangely disappeared from the freezer.
BTW it was Karamel Sutra, and I’m led to believe was rather delicious.
(but how would I know because obviously I didn’t eat any of it… right hubby???)
