I make the healthiest food choices every day.
Wouldn’t that be nice if that statement was 100% accurate!?
I am guilty of having a “fake it until you make it” approach to life. I am constantly at battle with myself over food and image and I try my best not to show it. Since I started working with Smart Ones® by appearing in the “Clean Slate” video filmed last November, I’ve felt empowered. Learning that I was not alone in my food struggles and that there are a number of women who share similar stories was comforting. I was honored to be a part of the Smart Ones® video and I proudly support the “Clean Slate” project. The project’s simple yet powerful message helps women lead a realistic healthy lifestyle. I truly feel that Smart Ones® cares about our wants & needs as women.
Recently my struggles with food have been less thanks to the support of the “Clean Slate” community. Connecting with other women about their healthy set backs has been reassuring and has kept me from going back to square one. This non-judgmental community gets it. I will never underestimate the power of support and how it’s OK to ask for help and share your struggles with those who get it.
The “Clean Slate” mentality is one I’ve talked about for years but found it difficult to actually practice until I discovered the Smart Ones® project. Accept your dietary set backs as temporary, be kind to yourself, and focus on the big picture. You are human. You will make mistakes as we all have our moments of weakness. Wipe the slate clean and move on. You have a long, happy and healthy life ahead of you!
