Nutrition Weekly Thought
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit”
The best way to make a large change is by making a small change, and then to make it again, and again, and again, until that small change is a habit we don’t have to consciously think about. It will become something we “just do.”
So make a decision...any small decision that can positively influence your nutrition. Then, make it again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. Make it until it is you...just the way you are...and you will be amazed at the huge change that it becomes.
What can I change? Stop soda....or drink 1/2 of what you usually do each day; eat 1/2 the portion sizes you normally do; have lettuce as your burger wrap instead of a bun; drink water instead of juice; pass on the donuts at the office; say no to dessert; say no to seconds; eat vegetables; cut your sugar intake in half; etc.
You are powerful. You are the master of you. Don’t let anyone, especially yourself, tell you different. Make a decision and stick to it.
Lastly, if you falter, and most everyone does, just get back on it. It’s not the end, and it definitely doesn’t mean you have lost all you’ve worked for; it just means you have another reference point to learn from and that you are human....not a robot. No one likes a robot.
Now get to it and begin!
