Healthy Lori is super fit, wears a sport watch, and tries to get me to eat right.
Lazy Lori is overweight, wears a lot of flowy tops, and tells me to eat what I want. Life is short, live a little!
Lately they have been battling it out:
HL: "Let's talk about breakfast. Have you seen the cappuccino and HUGE chocolate muffin she has every morning? They have to go."
LL: "I'll give you the muffin, but have you seen her when she wakes up? You can't take away her cappuccino. It could get scary."
HL: Agreed. Muffin goes, cappaccino stays.
Here is another battle:
HL: Have you seen what this chick eats at the "Grill on the Hill?" Chicken covered with cheese, BBQ sauce, and bacon? TWO ranch dressings?!?! She's killing me!
LL: Alright. Grilled chicken with a side of BBQ sauce, 1 ranch. Baby steps girl, baby steps.
Most of the time it is a balance between the two. I'm not totally giving up everything I enjoy, but I am making major changes in what I eat. I still allow myself 1 coke a day (not 6), but I might choose to have a banana instead of a cupcake for a snack. Hopefully after a while it won't be a battle anymore; it will be my everyday normal.
Anyone have any healthy substitutes they do? I would love to hear about it!
