Ever start your day with a healthy green smoothie or pack healthy snacks for the day like these:
only to get to work and partake of the bagels and donuts the management team surprises the office with?
I’ll be honest. It happens to me all of the time. It’s hard to decline free goodies that don’t come often.
The good thing is that I learned a long time ago not to let one ( or two) meals ruin my day. My philosophy is that a healthy diet happens one food choice at a time. So as long as I’m incorporating good food choices throughout the day I’m moving in the right direction of a healthy lifestyle. And the more good food choices I make over time, the less inclined I’ll be to choose bad food.
In the meantime, I’m not beating myself up when I indulge in not-so-good-for-me food and I suggest you don’t either. Just keep doing the best you can and get better one meal at a time.
I’m always open for suggestions to do better on this health and wellness journey. Post yours in the comment section below.

My workplace supplies bagels & cream cheese EVERY Tuesday and Thursday. I was good when I started and only had half. Now I say “thank you for my free breakfast” and eat a whole one every time. We also do cake every month to celebrate the birthdays of the month.It’s a struggle. I just try to eat better most of the time so these indulgences do not throw me off too much.
That is a struggle. Sounds like you have a handle on it, though. Thanks for commenting.
