I remember hearing a saying some years ago that went, You can’t always do what you would like, but you ought to like what you do. I took it to heart in the realm of work. There are lots of times I would rather be doing something else, but I really do love my job. That makes it doable. I think the same goes for learning to eat healthy instead of just dieting.
So here it is with a twist:
You can’t always eat what you would like, so you ought to like what you eat! If I make my healthy choices ones I actually look forward to they become treats in my mind. I feel rewarded when I sit down to eat them, instead of feeling like I am doin’ time.
