‘I want candy’ – Don’t deny yourself a spooky treat
I used to find Halloween a little challenging
Not because I am a big scaredy cat (although I am scared of the dark!)
In a similar way to Easter and Christmas ….
There is a lot of temptation around
The Halloween candy
The trick or treat sweets
We always buy far too much and it sits there tempting even the strongest willed of women!
This is the thing
If you are still trying to use willpower to control your eating habits
You’re probably close to failing
Or perhaps you’ve already failed and are planning a candy binge on Monday night!
I want you to know that you are not alone, and you’re not a failure
It took me YEARS and years to figure out that will power just wasn’t going to cut it
- I had to stop labelling foods as good or bad
- I had to stop being so mean to myself
- And I had to relax the rules a little bit
So, on Monday I plan to have a great breakfast and lunch full of veggies and protein….
Pumpkin soup for dinner – packed with goodness!
And then if I fancy a little bit of a sweetie treat
It’s not a big deal – I’ve covered my nutritional needs earlier in the day
A dessert is totally ok
Your eating habits must be sustainable if you want to lose weight and feel healthy and happy
And by this, I mean consistent and comfortable day to day
- If you are struggling with what you are putting into your mouth
- If you are plagued with guilt or shame around food
- If you know that you think of food as good and bad – and this affects how you feel about it….
Consider getting on the blower with me
My free strategy calls have helped a bunch of ladies feel more confident about their choices
Sometimes it just takes a bit of professional permission to let up on the rules
And eat that candy
Don’t deny yourself a spooky treat
