Sometimes we need to be strict with ourselves. At least I do. I promised myself one week of eating only what I was supposed to eat. Apparently, I like to let myself off the hook more often than I thought. I didn’t. I made it through the whole week without cheating. And then I kept going.
In the more than two weeks since then, I’ve eaten four things that were not on the list. Two of them were straight-up bad for me and two were just foods that I personally am choosing not to eat (one chicken and one fish). It has been interesting. I found myself craving salad, which essentially never happens.
What else might I learn if I get strict? How about you?
