60 days of dedication
- Wednesday, 13 July 2011
The first thing I have already started to do is exercise BUT I have slacked off for 3 days in a row and it is time to nip it in the bud before it gets further away from me. I don't know if it was the 109°/80% humidity weather we have been having or if I am just flat out lazy but it is what is and those 3 days are lost. Not only did I not exercise on those days but I literally had sugar cravings so bad that I finally decided to just say eff it and eat. Not good for the diet but it helped me clear my brain and I am now suffering through the cravings. Okay so it wasn't good for the brain either but today I am back on the treadmill for my hour long walk and the 20 minutes of strength training.
My biggest goal is to do 60 days of clean eating and exercise. I have already dedicated myself to a diet for 35ish days when I was on HCG so I am going to really push the limits and do the Whole30 Challenge not just for 30 days but for 60 days. This will hold me accountable for a lot longer than I have ever held myself accountable for anything and I am determined to do it. Yesterday was so freaking hard because I seriously wanted one last day to eat more sugar. Just one, okay maybe two donuts and I would be good to start the next day. Huh? What kind of crazy logic is that Michaela? You already had one bad day of eating and now I want another one? Yeah so not going to happen and I powered through yesterday like a champ. Of course there were 80 trips to the refrigerator and pantry only to walk out or close the fridge door and tell myself no. LOL! I probably looked insane pacing back and forth in the kitchen telling myself no!
To keep me on track I bought a huge calendar and hung it up in the workout room. I will record my weight and my workouts and then cross off the days as they go by. I think the visual will really help to keep me focused and realize that I have either pissed away a lot of time not doing anything or I will be excited to see my accomplishments. I hope it is the latter, actually I know it will be...
