I love the saying, “If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.” Today, I was ready to go to an event that I knew food would be served – perhaps something I could not eat on my detox plan. I could have easily made the excuse that the meal is a part of the event; therefore, I must partake. Nope! I had no idea what the meal was going to be, but I knew what I was supposed to eat.
I can not eat dairy, bread, pasta, and sugar. I can have vegetables, fruit, quinoa, sweet potatoes and butternut squash, and more healthy stuff that I can not think of at the moment. I am not doing a good job of referring back to the list provided by Move with Mack. I know there are limitless possibilities if I really take the time to figure out what I should be eating. Right now, I am happy with my veggies, quinoa, and fruit.
I attended the 2018 Be Well Mastermind Series – The SPICES of Life. It was not just an event, but an EXPERIENCE! The women I encountered today were simply amazing! They were loving, kind, and willing to serve other women by being transparent and sharing their truths. I showed up ready for my prepared lunch in my new fancy lunch bag. The individual color-coded premeasured containers made it so easy! At lunchtime, everyone around me complimented how good my food looked. I had chopped salad, wild Tilapia, and of course, quinoa (my new favorite food replacing white rice, and for dessert, I had fresh slices of pears. Dinner was Teriyaki Chicken Stir-fry (minus the Teriyaki sauce).
According to my VOICE:
I value my new system for meal preparation. I see it as an opportunity to stay on track and not lose sight of my healthy lifestyle goals. I intuitively know that preparing meals ahead of time will reduce my stress level about what to eat when I am hungry. Forgiving myself (charity) for past food transgressions is also a big part of this. If I focus on the years of overeating and poor food choices, I will begin to crave those poor foods; therefore, I release myself from the past. Going forward, I must be a student of proper nutrition and engage in a whole new and improved lifestyle beyond this 10 Day Detox!
