Willpower (will-pow-er) The Strength of will to carry out one's decisions, wishes or plans.
I have had many people say to me that they've lost their "willpower". Like it it accidentally got thrown out with the garbage, or you gave it to your best friend to borrow and she never brought it back. I feel your pain! I do really! No one is perfect! Repeat that...NO ONE is PERFECT! Sometimes we fall off the clean eating wagon, it runs us over, twice, then drags us for a mile or two across a very bumpy and gravel road! And you wake up the next morning and begin again! Yes...you begin AGAIN!!
It's time to purge! Go to what ever is calling your name in the cupboard (cakeballs, thank you sister KIM!) and throw them OUT! Then go to the fridge, do the same! Until every shelf/ hiding place, is clean. Grab your favorite clean cook books and plan the weeks meals. Make a grocery list and go to the store.(After you've eaten a good clean meal!) Shop the perimeter of your favorite market, stick to your list no matter what. Go home and break down your beautiful veggies, lean meat and fruit, arrange your food so it is easy and accessible to grab, and jump back on the clean eating wagon! Giddy-up! Lets break this bronco! (No pun intended for all of you Steeler fans :( !!!!)
Start with your first meal on your first day in your first week! This is the first step in your beautiful journey of clean eating and being happy in your own skin!
Success isn't something you chase. It's something you have to put forth the effort for consistently. Then it'll come when you least expect it. ~Michael Jordan
