I was getting stressed out that I was always going to need to put in a lot of effort to make healthy choices. I was worried that healthy choices would never become natural for me. Recently I realized that although it isn’t easy, it gets easier to make healthy choices. If you look make a habit out of making healthy choices then when you are feeling weak it makes it easier to make the healthy choice.
Yesterday I had been making really good choices. After dinner I treated myself with a cookie. I savored the cookie to get as much enjoyment from it as possible. While eating the cookie I was enjoying some wine and finished the bottle. When I finished both I told myself I could get up and have another snack and open another bottle of wine because I hadn’t snacked. I stopped myself because I realized I wasn’t hungry and didn’t really want more wine. This is huge for me and I’m so happy about it!
