Today is day 14 of my new eating plan. The mind games are beginning and this is when I will need to dig deep and keep the course. I have begun to question why am I doing this? Can I do this? Will it be worth the sacrifice? I may not be able to answer those questions right now but I know if I given upat this point I will feel bad and defeated. I have had many obstacles that I have had to over come on my journey this one is no different. I will take it one day and one meal at a time. I know that I can be victorious because I have done it before. I texted my trainer last night asking for encouragement and this is his response: "This is all about you! No one can do it but you and that is all there is to it!" It is all about me and I am the only one that can do it. So now I must find a way to make it happen for me. What ever game or strategies I must come up with to just do it! My weight at the gym is currently 151.6. I figure in order to get to 139 I must lose about 1.3 pounds per week so at this point I am ahead of the game and I must continue to remind myself of that. I am use to instant gratification on my effort this is a different beast and I must approach it much different. Focus less on the scale number and more on my training. I must also figure out or come up with some thing to spend my time doing. I think I have WAY to much free time now that our nest is empty.
Did I tell you that the writer from clean eating emailed me? We are attempting to set up a phone interview the week of the 17th. I also have been talking to a writer for spryliving magazine who would also like to talk to me. This is very exciting and I love sharing with others what I have learned along my journey.
Off to eat meal #1
