Get back on the horse!

Today I cheated myself out of health. Here’s my outlook on it.

Today I found myself breaking the promise I made when I started this blog. I binged away and over ate very unhealthy foods. Why would I be telling you this? I think it’s important for anybody to understand that I’m only human and that it’s okay to mess up. As long as I recognise  a mistake and chose to get back in motion.

Just because I over ate today, doesn’t change my willingness to become a healthier person. A moment of weakness is just a blur in this journey to health. When I reach my goals, I hope people can look back at this and see that it’s normal to have a hard time quitting the bad foods.

Some people don’t realise that a lot of unhealthy foods are incredibly addictive. Sugar alone is proven to to have similar affects to cocaine on the brain. We could even go on and on about how addictive MSG, a common replacement for salt, is. So when I walked by the pop fridge and all the salty snacks we stock in our store, instead of self-talking myself out of eating junk, I gave into that lesser way of thinking and said screw it.

As shameful as it is, I’m happy to share this moment of weakness so that I can make something good out of it in the future. Those of you who are struggling to become healthy individuals, don’t forget that you are only human and will always have the option of sticking to your goal! Get back on the horse! Win the race!

I’m not giving up simply because I made a mistake. I know my goals are still realistic and that I just need to stick with it. Eventually, it will get easier and I won’t have the cravings that struck me today. Those of you who are struggling with me, take a step back and read about a small change you can make today to get back on the horse.
