It's the second day in a row that I have journaled and obtained my fitness and nutritional goals. The first week is always hard for me physically and mentally. I no longer have my favorite foods to go to in order to feel better or just "good". Especially not in the amounts normally needed! The physical part is the tiredness and fuzzy headedness, like I'm not quite sure what is going on. I've had bloodwork done and everything is good so not sure why. Unless I am just so addicted to excess sugar and fat that my body screams when it is gone
But based on past experience I know it goes away and I'll feel much better if I just stick with it. The sun will be brighter, there will be a lightness in my step (which is SO not there right now, I feel a thud every time I step), and a song in my heart. I've just got to be patient and not give into the intense craving to make this temporary pain go away, and to find a new way to get comfort, other than food.
