A Nutrition Commandment – Rosie’s Ramblings

Thou Shall Not Shame Thyself


We’ve all been there – at the party, when you held out on the crackers and only nibbled on the veggies. You followed everything to a T. You almost made it out of there unscathed. Almost.


Your willpower broke when the fresh warm cookies came out. Temptation took hold. You eat one on the way out the door.


The whole way home you berate and shame yourself for your wrong-doing. You can’t believe you ate it. You make yourself feel sick at the thought of it.


Once that train gets rolling, it’s hard to stop.


You get home and see the pounds in the mirror that single cookie just added to your hips. You continue to hate yourself for that one cookie. You know you are being ridiculous, the pounds don’t just magically appear within seconds, but you just can’t stop!


But you need to, really.


In fact, those thoughts shouldn’t even be allowed to enter your mind because guess what:


No matter how much you wish that cookie away, it’s not going to change anything. It’s done. All you can do is focus on the present to create your future. Focus on that next meal being healthy and stop creating added stress over something you can’t change.


So eat the damn cookie, fast for 14-24 hours, and get over it. Because the sooner you do that, the sooner you have control over your identity as a healthy person. You’ll stop fretting and start seeing those results!
