Confessions of a Cookieholic

Confessions of a Cookieholic fatgurlinside.comThis winter was hard! It was LONG (still snowing), it was COLD, and it was full of change. It was also my first winter of attempting to eat healthy, and many times I failed BIG!

I find that I eat just for the sake of eating. Or I'm bored. Or it just looks good. Often times I'm not even hungry, but if I see it I want it.

So here I am leading online health and fitness challenge groups, and eating cookies every night... Which didn't really make me feel any better about it all.

I wanted to lead by example, to better my own health and feel great, but I felt stuck in a rut. Two weeks ago I told the hubby that I was going to start doing better. That I wanted to clean up my diet again, and that lasted about half a day. :-/

So, this past weekend, when I was scarfing down a cookie, or three, he reminded me of what I really wanted, which is to feel and look better! I told him I would officially start on Monday, which was yesterday, but that he had to help me. It's too easy to help myself to any of the five variety of cookies that Grandma has at any given moment, not to mention the peanut butter M&Ms and other sweet treats she has scattered about.

Yesterday was successful. When I got the sugary munchies at 8pm I had some peanuts instead. Then I headed upstairs and brushed my teeth. That did the trick!

It was just one day, but that one day reminded me that I CAN do this! It is a battle of the mind that I can win if I choose to believe and think on truth. I also began to feel the guilt of being a fitness coach indulging in way too many treats lift off my shoulders!

How can I inspire others to live a healthy life if I'm not??

Being a coach reminds me to stick to the path I set out on and bring as many others along for the journey as I can. It's not all about being a size 2 and looking hot in a bikini, but it's about transforming peoples lives physically, mentally and emotionally. I want to support and empower women to be confident, healthy, feel good, and be able to live the life they want to live.

And that is why I'm keeping my hand out of the cookie jar today!
