Boy, am I glad the weekend is almost here!! I have had a very interesting week, to say the least. I have learned that “I create my own willpower“, and that I allow my insecurities to control a very large part of my life. But, with w new day and a new perspective, I can change anything I choose to change in my life. As can you!
This weekend, here in beautiful Fort Collins, CO. the annual Taste of Ft. Collins will be underway, and I am excited to take in the aroma of all the wonderful foods that will be set up for us to enjoy. Now, I am also going to make sure I stick to my nutrition plan, so I will be carefully choosing which foods I will taste, but I am always amazed at how creative people can be when it comes to preparing foods. This is one area, I am not good at. I have no imagination when it comes to the culinary arts. I don’t know why that is, I mean, I love to eat food, so why can’t I think of way’s to prepare it, right?! I guess that would be like saying, “I love art, so I should be able to paint a masterpiece” .. right?! NOT! Having culinary skills, truly is an art form. I am absolutely convinced of it. I have seen and smelled some amazing foods created with absolute brilliance!
What about you? How are your culinary skills?? Since we know how important nutrition is to our overall health, is this something you are really good at, or seem to struggle with? Being a master chef is definitely not a prerequisite to being able to eat healthy, so don’t let that keep you from eating the way you know you need to, or from enjoying food. Although, it sure would be nice to have a chef on hand to cook our meals for us.. wouldn’t it!!
Whatever your plans are for the weekend, remember that you create your own willpower. You can decide to eat healthy, and allow your body to change and be strengthened, or decide to live an unhealthy, inactive lifestyle. My hope is that you will decide to change and get rid of the bad eating habits, and start to enjoy the benefits of eating healthy.
