“Our cravings and distractions are not meant to overwhelm us. They are meant to show our ability to crave what we need the most.” – Lysa TerKeurst Made to Crave
You know I like the word TREAT vs cheat!
ANSWER- once a week! So when you do your weekly planning sit down and schedule out your treat meal!
Write it in your planner and that will make you more likely to stick to your clean plan the rest of the week! But here is the catch! If you slip up when it’s not your treat meal or snack then you don’t get to take that 2nd treat day! It’s one or the other so choose wisely! Too many treats can lead you to weight loss plateau and frustration!
Right now you are beginning your challenge and you are still finding your way and struggling to break those bad habits so you might not be able to make it the entire week, but it’s okay! Just keep working at it and start to fight those urges to splurge! If you want something sweet, drink a large glass of water, wait 20 minutes!
Feeling that craving.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31
As your self…
Do I want to eat this right now because I need nourishment? or Because I am feeling empty either spiritually or emotionally?
“17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19

Give Yourself Permission to Change!
People may give you a hard time about your NEW healthier lifestyle, but don’t let that sway you! People would ask me “Are you still dieting?” I respond with “No, I just choose to eat healthier foods.” That pretty much ends the conversation. YOU ARE WORTH IT!
At some point you must decided if you are going to spend your life making other people happy at the expense of never being happy yourself.
