Usually today marks the day I give up chocolate for 40 days.
I've been on the fence about what to do this year.
The difference between this year and years past? I'm in a really good state of mind.
Giving up chocolate is usually my way of recommitting to disciplined eating that usually started on January 1st.
But you know what? This year, I haven't slacked off. Giving up chocolate will not help me succeed. I'm already kinda doing that.
No food restrictions this year.
Instead, my main focus to be more positive. I'm a bit of a Debbie Downer/Negative Nelly.
I will be a better wife, a better friend, a better colleague and strive to be an overall happier person and see the good things in life.
