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

Hi Kathi,
I too question and doubt myself about my health and fitness plan. All we can do is take one meal and one exercise at a time and make it count as much as we can. We also have to accept that there is no end to our will always be something to take care of,we need our bodies to live and I am happy when I know I don't abuse food emotionally. This is the truth for me and I remind myself
why I'm doing it and then I can keep going!! I also think it's great you have been approached from Eat Clean and others...hope it works out with them, keep me posted!!

The main thing is to look at what you have already done.

You CAN do this and I know you WILL do this. It's okay to question what you're doing, and wonder if. I would say any champion at any sporting discipline, who has said they never once doubted or questioned their actions, is an outright liar.

The one thing to remember is not to let those little doubts or questions put you off. Just keep believing in yourself, what you have already achieved, and what you are capable of.

You deserve this chance, so keep going GOOD LUCK and no worries yeah.

:-) :-).
