A while ago I saw this little motivational poster, "Do not reward yourself with food, you are not a dog"
If you're guilty of this, **raise your hand** ok everyone's hand should be up. Think about it- our entire lives, we are conditioned with food. Everyone wants to earn some of "the good stuff"
Every classroom I was in growing up had a bowl of candy that was passed out as a treat. Moms pacify their babies with cookies. Halloween is a gluttonous child's dream.
My whole life I have battled with this- when is it okay to give in to those cravings?
Over the past year and a half, I've learned to work around this and reward myself with things that push me CLOSER to my goals instead of further away. And when I DO indulge, guess what? I don't feel guilty! .
You know what's EVEN BETTER than indulging in unhealthy snacks....finding alternative ways to make the things that you love! For example: Snickers Blizzard anyone? Cinnabon? Mac N Cheese!
