Today was interesting, to say the least. It’s been a while since I’ve restricted anything, it would seem, as I had to tell myself NO a lot today. I needed a lot of redirection and reminders from myself: “Nope. It wasn’t in your lunchbox therefore it’s not in your belly.” Guess what? I DID IT! So far, not one thing has gotten in that shouldn’t have. Well, I did sample a grape at the store, but that’s not cheating. If I ate the cookie, sushi, cake, wine and chips sample, that would be another story. I felt like a grape was ok. Ha ha!
It’s definitely a familiar feeling: the one of denial is a reminder of choosing health. So while it’s hard, now, and sucks because I want to eat the thing, I feel like with day one under my belt that I’ve got this. I need four more and I’ve got the beginnings of solid habit energy. After two weeks it starts really feeling right. I’m excited that the ball is rolling, now I wanna kick it way out to the field!
Tomorrow? Add exercise. Happy Monday!
