Food for Thought

Published July 29, 2012 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I cannot even explain how eating foods full of sugar and preservatives will cause me to have toxic , negative self talk.  I mean here is the deal.  Being thin and being healthy are just not enough of a motivation to eat healthy.  I have a lot of confidence so changing the way I look just doesn’t seem to matter much to me.  I think this is why I am unable to stick to eating healthy and working out.  I don’t feel like I have to impress anyone.  I am just me.  However, you would think I would want to be healthy and live a long-lasting life, but obviously that isn’t motivation enough to get it together.

I have been thanking God for giving me the drive and the want to eat healthy.  I mean if I don’t do it to be healthy and I don’t do it to be thing, what is there?  Then it occurred to me how happy I was when I was eating properly.  I had a clearer mind and I could put a positive spin on just about anything.  AND the cravings for the unhealthy foods were gone.  It was amazing and completely freeing.  I want that feeling back.  I was enjoying my life.  There were days that I was so happy I felt like I was flying through each day letting them unfold especially for me.  Not in my way or the way I expected but just perfectly for me.  I didn’t have to do anything but wait for things to turn around in my favor.  I have to believe that my positive attitude was the reason things were going so smoothly.  So, could it be, then?  That eating clean could possible be what helps me to achieve real happiness?
