Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day this year, I have a message for you…
Just eat the chocolate.
I remember how I used to fret over V-Day chocolate, and would just ask for flowers when I really wanted See’s maple pecan bon bons, white chocolate apple pie, and hazelnut truffles.
Why feel deprived when what you want is totally available to you?
The problem is that many people tell themselves terrible thoughts like:
- Sugar is the devil
- If I have one, I will eat them all
- I can’t eat that and lose weight
- That’s not good for me
For the record, I don’t ever remember hearing the news story about the girl who ate a piece of chocolate and immediately died, gained 30 pounds or got pregnant, so take a breath.
Ask yourself what you would enjoy having on Valentine’s Day?
Eating a whole cake or box of chocolates to drown your sorrows is obviously not going to bring you joy, so really think about it.
How many chocolates would you really enjoy? Three? Five?
Decide now, plan in advance, and have what you love.
This is a powerful activity that reprograms your brain for success!
By enjoying the treats you’ve planned to have when you typically eat ALL the treats because you don’t “allow yourself” to have them, you train your brain to learn that you are the one who is in control- not the food.
Each time you practice this activity, your ability to decide to enjoy what you want gets stronger– your trust in yourself grows, you prove that you can follow through on your intentions.
Who doesn’t want more of that?
You, my beautiful Rebel deserve indulgence, so do yourself a favor and eat the chocolate.
