Caramel cashew sundaes with hot fudgeJul 09, 2020
I had a fantastic workout yesterday...The kind where I dripped sweat everywhere & felt like I could take on the world.
But oddly…or not so oddly for me...
Mid-workout, a Culver's caramel cashew sundae popped into my head. More specifically, a caramel cashew sundae with hot fudge. (Because that's what I do.)
Why? Besides the fact that they're awesome?
Well one reason is because I IDENTIFY myself as a food lover who eats caramel cashew sundaes with hot fudge, & I haven’t COMMITTED to being someone other than that.
The thing is, as much as I would like to eat healthier than I do...as much as I LIKE the idea of eating healthy all day every day...I simply don't care ENOUGH right now.
I don’t care ENOUGH to commit to removing caramel cashew sundaes with hot fudge from my diet.
And if I TRULY want to identify as myself as someone who eats healthy all day every day, I need to care enough to commit.
Because nothing changes if nothing changes.
So did I beat myself up as I drove through the Culver’s drive-thru? Did I beat myself up as I scraped up the last bit of caramel?
No, I laughed at the irony of driving directly to Culver’s in my sweat drenched clothes & savored every bite.
Because I’m clear on what I HAVE committed to & what I haven’t.
I’ve committed to feeling strong & working out every day, but right NOW, I might just stop for a sundae on the way home.
So I encourage you…
Consider what you care ENOUGH about to change & why. Take action & commit.
And if you don’t, savor that sundae, & accept where you are right now. :-)
