I'm more of a goals over resolutions type of woman. Resolutions generally don't work for me. I make them real generic...like be a better person than I was the previous year or eat healthier. Now on the other hand, my goals are specific, with details of how to achieve them, and dates by which they should be accomplished.
So for 2018, I RESOLVED to develop healthier habits like exercising, eating less processed foods, and drinking more alkaline water to balance my body's pH. Thus, the trip to the health food store on Saturday to pick up some water and organic raw nuts for snacks. Alas, they didn't carry the water brand I prefer, so a trip to Publix was necessary...and that's where it all went awry.😣 You know the rule...NEVER grocery shop when you're hungry. I broke that one, because I skipped breakfast thinking that I would grab an early lunch. That didn't happen. It was well past lunchtime, when I walked into Publix, only to be greeted by the heavenly aroma of freshly fried chicken, commingled with freshly baked bread. My stomach was telling my brain all kinds of foolishness about what we should eat and buy.😋 Thankfully, the chicken was easy to bypass, as I am currently cutting back on fried foods, but bread is a whole other situation.😏 I got an apple fritter from the bakery, and headed to the water aisle. Unfortunately, my other temptress, potato chips are also located on that very same aisle. To make matters worse, my favorite chips were on sale! It's was a sign, right? Yes, literally it was a big sale sign right across from the alkaline water on my FAVORITE chips.🤗 I picked up two, well three bags of chips, and my water and made a mad dash to the counter before Satan😈 could distract me further with on sale, processed foolishness. 😌
Y'all pray for me. Pray that I pass this test the next time I'm on the potato chip aisle. Better yet, pray that I be released from the spirit of snacking.😋The struggle is real. Blessings to you all in advance for your prayers. 😄 Happy Friday, Loves!😘 #getfit #absbysummer #foodie #thestruggleisreal #melanatedbeauty #melanin #insta #instamood #headwrap #nikietheexplorer #ieat #alkalinewater #potatochips
