Monday is always a fresh start for me.
Because #letsbehonest, during the weekend I like to indulge a little in the things I love.
And when there are weekend treats, Chocolate Cake is never too far away. I shared this Oil Free Chocolate Cake with some friends over the weekend and it never disappoints. Nobody believed me when I told them I used sweet potato instead of butter in the cake!
Because deprivation is something that never sits well with me or lasts for the long run. Believe me, after two days on the cabbage soup diet way-back-when I think I ate half my fridge because I lost the “willpower” to stay on it.
And that’s how this diet-binge cycle starts – depriving yourself of the things you love until you can’t handle it anymore and lose the will-power to stay on whatever diet craze is fadding in the latest hot minute.
Deprivation really sucks. Amiright?
And that’s why I prefer to eat healthy, reasonably and happily rather than stressing out over eating that extra piece of chocolate cake over the weekend.
Because come Monday, I know there will be lots of greens, fruit and veggies to be enjoyed. So Monday morning, with my green smoothie in hand and running shoes by the door. I’m back on board for another week full of healthy and tasty eats. And next weekend, I know I’ll indulge a little in the things I love. And that’s okay because it’s all about #eathappylivehappy, friends!
Happy Monday! 🙂
