I decided that I needed to cut the weekday coffee. It was getting bad. Like "I'm jealous of that homeless man walking down the street because he has a Roll Up cup." I also like to include approximately 89 tablespoons of creamer in my coffee, and I knew I was drinking a lot of calories before noon. So I said I would give up the weekday coffee - I would still enjoy a cup of fresh-made (by husband) coffee on weekend days if I wanted it, but nothing during the weekdays. And you know what? I don't really miss it.
That's the thing about making these good habits, and truly seeing how you can survive without the shitty food. I promise you: You will not miss it.
|And some people just about ran that kid down because he had a Tim Horton's in his hand. It's a sign.|
Honestly, there isn't a lot of junk food I do miss. I still enjoy the occasional chocolate, but it has to be really good chocolate. Most of the crap out there is full of wax and tastes nasty - why would I bother? I don't crave pizza, or wings, or fries. I can drive past a ton of fast food places and feel nothing but happy about the choices I make. If I wanted pizza, would I have some? Of course. But to tell you the truth, I never really want it. Give me a taco salad or tofu stirfry and I'll be much happier.
So have faith - if you truly want it, and you commit to making good habits, you will not miss the shit. It does get easier.
Do you have a vice that is eating away at you (har har har)? Try dropping it. Seriously. You might surprise yourself at how good you feel.
