Somebody call the waaaambulance! Jennifer's feeling sorry for herself today!
But in all seriousness....how do you keep your willpower strong in the face of mediocre results and lots of temptations?
In a desperate effort to motivate myself to keep on going, I bought a giant pack of multi-colored star stickers yesterday for adding to my wall calendar each day to track my accomplishments. On a day when I eat healthy, wholesome foods all day I get a gold star. When I drink enough water, a blue star. When I surpass my 10,000 step per day target, a red one. Etc. etc. I thought adding all those stars for this week would make me feel good, but honestly, I just feel kind of silly. What normal adult uses star stickers for a reward? A caramel iced doughnut with heart sprinkles might make me happier. At least for a few minutes, before the guilt sets in. Sigh.
|With all that being said, this lunch WAS actually yummy as well as healthy!|
