Seven full days of nothing but juice.
I did it. And I know you can too. When we actually make a decision to do something, we feel it. It takes something that sounds crazy going in and turns it into a done deal. Commitment. Preparation. Focus. And a willingness to say no to what used to be in it’s place.. to choose differently.
Ya know, that’s another thing I feel I really learned this week. I learned by experience that I actually can say no to things. I can say no to the stuffed crust pizza on my counter. I can say no to the delicious breaded chicken things that just came out of the oven. I can spend an evening with friends, have a great time, and not consume the same dinner. I can choose differently when I eat, and actually not change much else. I’m not saying I’ll never eat with friends anymore or never indulge in Dominoes, of course I will. I’m saying that I know that anytime I decide I don’t want it, anytime I decide to put health on top, I can. And it’s all good. Real friends will support you. It reminds me of that Daily Zen, “You will be like those with whom you surround yourself. Your environment is stronger than you are.” In effect, we can be the change in our environment. And it’s COOL!!
