Trying to Eat Clean

I’m a believer in the basic principle of “putting in the work.” If we do our part, results will surely come. Maybe not the results we would like all the time, but results all the same. It’s true in school, at work, and maybe more than anything else, it is true when talking about our health.

Eating clean and exercise are the best medicines we can give our bodies. I believe this more each and every day. While there are a myriad of studies to back up that claim, the results from my own life are proof enough for me.

Though it hasn’t always been the case, clean eating has become something I love. I feel better and my body functions better when properly fueled. So I do my best to eat clean, but I’m not perfect, nor do I claim to be.

As a result of my less than perfect nature, I mess up. (Fried stuff, popcorn, etc.) It’s okay. It happens, and when it does, my body has a way of telling on me.

My body says, ” hey, you did it again!” and I reply, “yeah, sorry bout that.  I’ll try to do better.”

So that’s that’s the daily goal. Not perfection, we’ll never reach that, but better. That’s what I carry through the day, and most of the time it works. It can work for you too.

So often we try so hard to be so strict on ourselves, placing so many restrictions upon us that it’s almost impossible not to fall beneath the weight of them all. Don’t. Just do a little better than yesterday. Before you know it, you’ll be eating clean. Mostly.

Then there’s exercise, but that should probably be a different post so I’ll sign off for now. Good luck, God bless, and happy (clean) eating!
