It’s hard to change eating habits. My husband and I are working on reducing our sugar intake. We start out great each morning. I use our juicer to make a carrot, collard green, kale, and apple drink for each of us (believe it or not, it’s very tasty). We have our oatmeal for breakfast, but by mid-afternoon we are craving sweets. We fight the urge for most of the day, but after a healthy dinner of veggies and rice and beans or whole wheat pasta and a salad, we cave. We end up making either a cookie run or a Starbucks stop.
We have decided to alternate being the heavy (no pun intended). When one of us feels weak, the other will be strong. Our goal is to give ourselves permission to feel weak at the same time and just indulge once during the weekend, reminding ourselves that change is about progress rather than perfection. What one of us might not be able to do alone, we can do together!
