Ever since I started feeding my body real food to fuel my goals, my perspective on food has changed. During the football game the smell of french fries and fried chicken almost made me want to vomit. My family mentioned dessert at a restaurant and all I wanted were my almonds. My youngest brother has been incredibly influential and supportive throughout my lifestyle change and it's comforting that he believes the same thing. Throughout the entire trip it felt like I wasn't being selfish alone but we were being selfish together for making healthier decisions.
Part of me felt guilty for not going with the flow the way I usually do. Looking back I know I shouldn't feel guilty about making those decisions because I know that what I put in my body directly affects my mood. When I take care of myself with real food and having my time to exercise, I'm better at taking care of others. Because I am able to be selfish and take time for my health I'm better able to keep having my superpower. Taking care of myself is the best way to take care of others and taking care of others is my favorite superpower.
Here's to rocking the rest of the week and making good decisions!
