This arrived in my daily email from PCRM's 21 Day Vegan Kickoff, taking place right now. But it's about more than food.
A Message from Marilu Henner
Every day, remember these important lessons:
1. Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.
2. Learn to love the food that loves you.
3. Set up your environment to win.
4. Life is all about progress, not perfection.
5. There’s no such thing as cheating. It’s all about gathering data. Every day is an experiment. But you’re not just in a laboratory; you’re in the laboratory of your life.
6. When you improve the quality of your food, the quantity takes care of itself.
7. Be supplied, not denied.
8. If you can’t hide it, decorate it.
9. Don’t wait for your life to begin.
10. Don’t throw a pity party. Do something nice for someone else.
11. Be resilient. The key to your life is how well you deal with Plan B.
12. The problem is the solution disguised.
13. Listen to what you say, you may mean it.
14. Getting healthy is NOT about measuring, weighing, or counting the fats, grams, calories, carbs, or points of the same old crappy food!
Maybe one or two of these hold particular significance for you in your life right now. For me, it's #1 and #12.
