And I also need to stop being such a pansy.
Like today Elle and I went for a walk and in between my shivers I thought, "My, how nice a hot apple cider would be right now".
Then we happened upon a little coffee stand so I asked if they had any sugar FREE hot apple cider.. and they didn't. But alas the woman was persistent and somehow convinced me to buy a sugar free hot cocoa instead. Which wasn't actually what I wanted at all. And if you've ever tried it..it tastes like crap. Frothy crap.
So then I was kind of mad at myself for the rest of our walk, mainly because I just paid $3 for pretend chocolate in foamy milk.
Because I am a chicken.
And in thinking of this chain of events I've decided it's time to (wo)man up and not let anyone else decide for me what I will or won't have. Because I know it's pretty cool to eat sugar..but I'm not cool right now. And that's how I want to be.
If you, by chance, are like me and easily forget why exactly you are doing the hard things in your life that you are actually choosing to do, karate chop those doubts and fears and get to work!
3. Be Free.
2. One day at a time.
We tend to stop ourselves when we're so close to the finish line. Don't focus on how far you have to go..remind yourself constantly how far you've come.
