She talks about instead of setting a goal to stop eating out for lunch at work, you can form a healthy habit of cooking extra food at supper and packing it up for lunch the next day.

“At some point, the pain of not doing it becomes greater than the pain of doing it.” – Steven Pressfield
“It is easier to change than to stay the same”
Example: It’s easier to pack your lunch than to eat out and get mad at yourself for wasting time, money and eating unhealthy.

-Creating a habit you can maintain
