I have come to realize that nobody is perfect in their eating! If you are a perfect eater then you are probably not being completely truthful. Usually when somebody wants to be perfect in their eating and they slip they feel major Guilt!! But, why?? Nobody is meant to be perfect. The reason I get major guilt is because I really shouldn't eat some things and not only do I feel guilt but I feel Major sickness!!! Not only headache, stomache ache, dizziness, breathlessness, heart palpitations, but my acne prone sensitive face gets worse and that lasts for days, after the sickness settles, that is almost the worst part for me. I've been trying to clear up my skin for years and finally found the thing that does it. The food I eat!!! If I had only known that years ago. :/ But, I'm still not ever going to be completely perfect with my eating. There are some things that are worth being sick for a couple days...haha. It doesn't feel worth it when those consequences set in...LOL. But, if feels worth it in the moment. Why not be able to enjoy things that you really love once in a while. I'm not going to cause myself this sickness over random things. They will be things that are more worth it to ME. My moms homemade macoroni and cheese, banana cream pie, chocolate chip cookie dough oreos...haha...maybe! Those sound delicious :) It's all about the moment and if it's worth it at the time.
I also know that when you focus 1 month on making the healthiest of habits you WILL feel the best you have ever felt and it CAN lead you to find the right path of healthy eating for YOU! You CAN do this for 1 month without cheats! If you do slip that is your choice, do it without guilt. Make your focus about healthy food and this has the potential to help you find that balance for the rest of your life. Detoxify your body, focus on healthier habits and move forward in health!!
This is what I have decided to do for myself for February. I need to tighten the reigns for myself again and get back on track. I do plan on doing it all or nothing for February, beyond that it still is my focus because that's what works for me and my health. But, if I slip every now and again after that it's ok, I'm not perfect, maybe that is MY Perfect! If I ever need to tighten the reigns I'll just do it again.
