Do yourself a favor today and decide to go on a diet. A “should” diet. This has nothing to do with nutrition, eating or weightloss.
I want you to eliminate the word “should” from your vocabulary.
Seriously, when has this word ever added value to your life?
Let me help you here.
Can you think of a time when you’ve thought, “I should (fill in the blank)” and then felt a positive emotion?
“I should have done it differently.” ——> and now I’m full of regret and focused on my past.
“I should be a better mom.” ——> leaves me feeling inadequate.
“I should have known better.” ——> makes me feel stupid.
“I should go workout.” ——> but now I dread it.
“I will to try harder next time.” ——> useful.
“I am becoming a better mom every day.” ——> hopeful.
“I did the best I could with what I knew.” ——> peaceful.
“I am becoming a person who takes care of her body.” ——> optimistic.
Let’s give the word “should” the old heave-ho, shall we?
In fact, I’m challenging myself to do a “Whole 30” without it.
Who’s with me?
