Started as cry Ended as Determination

Thursday, August 25, 2011

So i was feeling kind of down on myself today, i've been doing the Body For Life for about 4 weeks straight now, i've been SOOO disciplined, BY THE BOOK, but lately... I don't know i was feeling myself slipping, eating a little bit more peanut butter, or a piece of cheese here or there... I sort felt that little fat chick inside of me saying "Go ahead, it's just a little more, you'll make it up tomorrow... I started feeling like a failure BEFORE i failed that bad!!!

Then i started watching this documentary on Netflix called "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead", it's about juice fasting which i'm NOT totally interested in doing BUT it gave me inspiration the moment i needed! It focused on why it's so important to get healthy and give it what it needs! I guess it just gave me hope that the way i'm going, eating better, exercising 6 days a week, it's the best thing i could ever do for myself. I'm resolved to finish the 12 weeks in their entirety, i can do it now!!! Thanks for reading, Spark friends are some of the best supporters out there!!!

    I saw that documentary, and it helped me get back on track. I bought a juicer and tried some fruit drinks but haven't tried vegie ones yet. I might start out shorter juice fasts to get started, seen some articles about 3 day fasts

    I totally get the eat a little more and make it up tomorrow feeling, what works for me is taking that hungry/craving feeling and turn it around and welcoming it. Thinking to myself that is what is making me lose weight.

    Thanks for reading my blog, it does help!

    I've started Body for Life twice before but never finished the entire 12 weeks, mostly because I let those slip-ups add up and get in the way. Good for you for pushing past that and resolving to keep on going! This time around, I'm determined to finish, too. Twelve weeks? Bring it on!

    And I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" recently and loved it. So inspiring and motivating!

    Good luck to you!

    good for u!! we all have slip ups..the thing is not to dwell on it and move on. you're healthier and stronger and you'll be even more healthier and stronger by the end of 12 weeks. look at it from this perspective...everything ur doing, learning and creating to be healthy, is something you'll be doing for life not just for 12 weeks. its tough..but ur making it happen...so dont be so hard on yourself. emoticon emoticon emoticon
