Sick of being controlled by sugary cravings? Then stop letting it control you!
HA! Easy to say, right?!
Do you ever feel like your body literally say, “Must eat sugar. must find nasty snack. You need this”. Or maybe your body is more like this, “You only ate a light breakfast and decent lunch so you deserve a junky snack”. Well, tell your mind to shut it!
When learning to quit sugar we must first realize that sugar is in fact, an addiction. Sugar happens to be more addictive than cocaine. Sugar releases endorphins the brain telling us that we want more. (Guess what else releases endorphins? Hard work, fitness, movement!)
We have to control our minds before we can conquer our bodies. Part of that control is learning how to shut our our negative voice, our craving voice, our lazy voice and learn to listen to your positive voice, our smart voice, and our motivated voice. This is one of the hardest parts of being a healthy person. Anyone can go to the gym and workout for an hour but it takes real work to control what goes in your mouth 24/7.
I like to think that I need to workout my brain just like I do my body. I like to conquer little things (like choosing a healthy snack, going all day without sugar, getting up and moving first thing) and go up from there.
Overtime we gain control of our minds and we can really live freely without the inside nagging voice. Our souls can shine on. Once we control our minds we can dip into our should potential and be who we really are.
Do something today to workout your brain. Shut out your nasty inner doubter and listen to your soul.
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
