The Battle Continues

Hey there! It’s been a couple of weeks since I checked in! I love stating the obvious! Anywho, I am sitting here getting some work completed on a Saturday afternoon, and I have had a great day so far. I had some oatmeal with banana for breakfast. A protein, fiber and maca powder shake for a snack.

I took a yoga class today, and came home and made myself lunch. A salad with beets, cucumbers and mixed greens. Some roasted cauliflower and watermelon. Here I sit, craving and thinking about something sweet. I would even go so far as to say that I would stop what I am doing and make cookies, BUT I am out of brown sugar, so that’s not happening.

Then, it struck me! I created this really cool avenue to express my desire to indulge in sweets! I am struggling with managing the sweets. Is that appropriate sentence writing? Who knows, I WANT SWEETS!!! It’s amazing to me how strong it is! My mind battles back and forth and I make it until about 7pm at night and I cave. EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

I am. When put together, they are two of the most powerful words that you can speak OR two of the most negative. So, here goes.

  • I am strong.
  • I am healthy.
  • I am grateful.
  • I am full of shit….oopsies!
  • I am full and do not want sweets.
  • I am confident.
  • I am competent.
  • I am peaceful.
  • I am relaxed.
  • I am taking action.
  • I am beautiful.
  • I am successful.
  • I am (it gets easier) willing.
  • I am happy.

There! Now I feel better. The craving is still there, but less. I can wait it out. It will pass. Now, back to work! If I need, I will post again later. Maybe I will go for a walk to take my mind off of it completely. The important thing is that I took action today in a positive manner, instead of doing the same thing I do everyday. If I want it to change, I have to change what I am doing right?
