Stop! That's what I'm telling my cravings. I'm going to conquer my cravings (at least for the time being, I'm not saying cravings are always bad and to never give in to them). I'm in full thought-assault mode and it's going great so far. I am on Day 2 of my 7 day realigning. I took a couple steps yesterday that I'd like to share.
First, from yesterday's post:
#4. Drawing a line. This is a tough one. I'm generally opposed to extreme behaviors, to extreme "diets" but I think I need to go cold turkey on the junk for at least a week to break the bad habit. Not sure exactly what this will look like but I think I'm just going to eat my 3 meals and my 2 snacks per day - all healthy ones - and avoid all the rest. I'm going to write this commitment on a piece of paper and read it every day.As I sat down to write out my commitment I had the desire to start with the reasons I want to make this commitment. I've written down my reasons for wanting to lose weight many times but I have yet to write down the reasons I want to maintain my weight loss. Without much thought I made a list of whatever popped into my head.
Looking at this list the only thing that I'd love to edit is #5. It's "possible" to wear cute clothes even if I didn't maintain my weight, I think the difference is in how I feel in those cute clothes.
So, after making this list it was on to the line drawing. Again, I wrote without taking much time to think about it. Put pen to paper and go!
Whew. Just reading this back is almost emotional. This is MY line. I am drawing it. For me. Ooh ra! I drew the line and then decided to put the days/dates above/below it.
So, after my line drawing I tackled the doughnuts. What doughnuts you might ask? When my mom came over on Friday she brought a dozen Krispy Kremes with her. Of course I ate
#7 on my list yesterday was to clean up the house food. Doughnuts have no place in my house right now. Buh bye.
So I'm on to Day 2 of my 7 day realignment. My back/neck is still tweaked so despite the strong urge I have to go for a run or the gym or something I am holding back. I don't want to make matters worse. I am reminding myself that even Olympians sometimes have to give their body a break. That when I can, I will get back to exercise and find my way back to enjoying those badass workouts I so enjoy. But for now, I am going badass on the food.
Can you feel the energy? Is my drive jumping off your computer screen and smacking you in the head? I hope so...get moving people, we have work to do!
