I bought candy to feel better today - here is how I’m reacting to it.

I bought a Reese’s Fast Break and a box of Hot Tamales at the store today and ate it before I got home so I could hide it from my wife. This is a behavior I’ve been trying to break for a long time. It’s been a really long time - months - since I’ve done this. Two big points: 1) I’m doing great. I’m loving my powerlifting routine. I’m eating better than I ever have. 2) Real change is not a one time event. It is being honest and really trying. In the past this would’ve destroyed me. I would’ve planned to go to the store and do it again to feel better about doing it in the first place. I had a moment where I could’ve chose to just bring the candy inside and share it with the family. That would’ve been a good outcome. I also had a moment where I could’ve told my wife what I was planning on doing when I went to the store to get milk and oranges (for a dessert she was going to make from the Centr app I bought that was supposed to be helping me eat better). You can see all the ways this slip up could’ve blown up. From my perspective, or my wife’s perspective. Plenty of ways to justify a blow up. But how do we beat that? We share. We tell the truth to others and ourself. We recognize our true desire to be healthy and we are patient with ourselves because we are honest and trying and we know real change isn’t a one time event.

Key Takeaways

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
