One of the things that I have struggled with the most in my life is a low self-confidence. I used to be quite the perfectionist (I’m in recovery now;). Perfectionism can create quite a bit of negative self-talk, which retrains your subconscious to constantly pick out the negative things about yourself. As a result, it can completely destroy your self-confidence and self-esteem. After all, how can you feel good about yourself if you are regularly pointing out all the ways in which you aren’t good enough?

I have wanted to write this post for a really long time because this program completely changed my life! I first found Lucky Bitch and Denise Duffield-Thomas in December 2013.

I had been working like 80+ hours a week for a few months in a row and was exhausted.

I have a little confession to make: I am a huge fan of making quantum leaps. You know, when you have an a-ha moment that seems to shift you overnight and change seems soooo easy. Unfortunately, hoping for a quantum leap all the time hasn’t proved to be the best means to accomplish my goals (lol). So let me share with you what has been.

Have you ever tried to overhaul your diet over night? You know..go from eating out 10 times a week to trying to eat salads for every meal (maybe not that dramatic..but you get my point)? This was a common practice for me prior to losing weight, I tried to dramatically and drastically shift my diet over night. And…it never worked (of course) and always ended in a binge.

Through that experience, I learned what actually works when it comes to eating healthy.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? If you’re anything like I used to be (and admittedly, sometimes still do), you may reach for your phone to check your notifications or start to think about all the things you have to DO today.
