I want you to eat chocolate today (unless you have an allergy, duh).
I want embrace the fresh Spring……um…..rain? (never mind) and see the little flower poking up and feel mentally invigorated knowing that Spring and eggs represent the start of new, great things…
……and yes I want you to eat some chocolate.
Because I’ve got a task for you today.
We’re going to work your muscles. Your WILLPOWER muscles.
I want you to believe yourself and trust yourself that you can have a little bit of chocolate, and put the rest away.
You won’t go back and have another bite every 20 minutes.
You won’t think what the hell let’s get it over with and out of the house (by eating it all in one go).
You definitely won’t feel guilty for eating a little bit.
You even won’t feel guilty for eating the whole lot if it happens……….but that does prove you’ve got some ‘up-skilling’ to do when it comes to your relationship with food.
But that’s NOT going to happen anyway.
Willpower is a muscle; it can be weak or strong, and made stronger.
How? By challenging it and exercising it, and like lifting a weight, it gets easier as you get stronger.
So now that’s your homework assigned here’s some ways to overcome that ‘give me chocolate now’ feeling.
If you’ve got PMT it’s a fact this will be harder, so pay attention:
Only you know that, and I know that, and it’s ok to not follow the crowd. It’s more than ok.
Have a lovely Easter Day!
