Then one morning, I woke up and literally looked at myself in the mirror and said, "F This. I need some real help."
(Check me out in my hot mess years, #nicedenim) -->
I had no idea where to begin. I just knew I had to start somewhere.
Can you relate?
That day I took every Snapple Iced Tea and diet soft drink along with the sugar free everything I had in my pantry (which, back then, meant full of something else like crap...not natural sweeteners) and I tossed them all out.
Yep. Gone. Buh-bye.
My family complained. They hated coming over but eventually, they got used to it.
Everyone started drinking more water and stopped asking for the artificial shiz.
(BTW today,… my 10 year old, Madeline, willingly drinks non-dairy probiotic beverages and eats seaweed snacks. Sometimes I have to pinch myself so I won’t shout with joy from the mountaintops when I catch her enjoying this stuff.)
I kinda couldn’t believe it was that easy, so I decided to tackle another “bad habit” I had: constantly scrolling my devices at night.
You ever do that? You go to bed and before you know it 2 hours have gone by and you've spent that time catching up on FB + IG instead of your zzZZzzs.
One night, before bed, I put my phone in a drawer + my laptop in another room to see what would happen...
