My foot is throbbing. Throb. Throb. Throb.
My soccer game yesterday was AWESOME..but I am not too sure what is going on with my foot. I think that I’ve torn or sprained something on the top of my food between my ankle. Great for running…not!
Started off this morning w/ a Tofu Purple Monster: 4oz firm tofu, 1 c. of rice milk, 2 c. of spinach, 1 c. of berries.
Lunch was amazing. I was hungry. A big bowl of vegetable soup. A gluten free wrap w/ 25 g. of cheese, sauteed vegetables w/ spinach…amazing! 1 c. of rice milk.
Afternoon snack was a little handful of nuts and a huge cup of tea: ginger and fruit tea
There’s so many people who we look at and thing ‘Man they have so much willpower. They can not eat the whole piece of chocolate cake. They get up every morning to run.’ Perhaps it’s more for them a WILLINGNESS to make healthy eating habits/exericse a part of their life. I have to say this post hit me.
I fail with the idea of willpower, because I think that it places a lot of pressure on people to maintain something that they wouldn’t normally want to maintain. However, saying to yourself ‘I am willing and able to make running a part of my life five days a week and giving up sugar and gluten so that I can maintain a healthy and active lifestyle’…the struggle becomes less..FOR ME. Try it.
After thinking through this today at work..I feel like it has turned a huge leaf in my life. I have to be willing to embrace the things in my life that will enable me to have a healthy, energy filled, skinny jean ass Life!
I came home and had two rice cakes with about 1 tsp. of peanut butter. 1 carrot and some grapes. I should have had a bit more to eat during the afternoon because I am always coming home hungry from work and don’t want to do anything else. I will pack a snack tomorrow 🙂
I went grocery shopping…I just feel better when my bed is made, dishes are washed, and shelves are stocked. Currently two of the three are completed.
For dinner I had a hummused shrimp stir fry w/ 1/2 a sweet potato. It was awesome and I am content!
What do you think about Willpower V. Willingness?
