The beginning of Day 9 … and the sugar withdrawal headache has decided to continue to be my … friend. Why OH why do I do this to myself.
Sugar is not the enemy … but eating all I can and then removing it … is killing my brain cells.
Retaking control of your weight and health is a journey, not a destination.
More exerts from Steve #87:
Fat people think they have forever to change.
Fit people have a sense of urgency.
With their thinking grounded in objective reality, fit people have a sense of urgency about getting thin and healthy. Their mindset is to take action while they still have a choice.
The middle-class thinker is famous for procrastination, especially when it comes to areas of life that are uncomfortable.
The downfall of the average person is an overwhelming desire to be comfortable.
The sad truth is many people come to the end of their lives with feelings of regret for not taking more risks and going after their dreams.
Critical Thinking Question: Do you have a sense of urgency about getting fit, or are you tempting fate by deluding yourself into believing you have forever???
Action Step: Decide to get fit now instead of later. Not next week, not after the holidays or next summer. Do it now, while there’s still time. Do it now, while you still have a choice.
Hmmm … do I have a sense of urgency about getting fit. No … but maybe yes.
I have sabotage myself for a looooooong time by plotting my weight loss into the future … by this date I will weight this number. Then when the scale doesn’t oblige … my diet mentality warped brain jumps up and down and causes havoc with what ever success I might have.
This time … I’m not doing the weight loss math as much as projecting short term goals:
Get to day 30 of staying on track.
Get in 5x a week of walking.
Get to day 30 of meditating.
The urgency I feel is … this time next year do I want to be saying, whining, moaning about the same ol’ same ol’. NO. Then MAKE this your year.
Just do it … already.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
**Within this blog is my longwinded thoughts based on my reading and humble understanding of from Steve Siebold’s Die Fat or Get Tough and years and years and years of searching for thinness and … self-peace.
