Choosing to eat healthy can be hard. That’s why we call it CHOOSING. I could choose to eat the junk food I used to love, or I could choose to eat something that will actually nourish my body.
For me, the two hardest things to let go of were Oreo cookies and Cokes. The Oreos went about a year ago… after tasting cookies made from higher quality ingredients and realizing what is IN the Oreos, they were easy to let go.
Cokes were harder. Much harder. Even though I knew how bad all the sugar was for me, and how it really was rotting my bones just like my mom told me as a kid, I still liked it.
Then I started to notice sometimes that my hands would shake a little bit when I typed on the computer. That was kind of a pain and a bit worrisome. I eventually put two and two together and realized that drinking Coke = shaky hands. Not good.
Now I drink tea. and lots more water. It’s not so bad, after all.
What’s the hardest thing for you to give up, even though you know you probably should?
