I haven't been doing as well as I would like on this journey. I know food is my issue and I have begin making baby steps to changing my eating habits. But it feels as if whenever i take one step forward, i take two steps back the following day.
I started this to 'To hell with defeat' (THWD) mindset to not give up...not surrender even though I see very little results. But right now I feel as these methods I am trying do not work and why bother waste my time on this whole journey. I have tried, since I started this journey, to blot out the feelings of ' you will not win at this' and 'if you stop, you will gain more than you started with so why not just stop mow and gain a little' and 'you will never be a success story' but I believe these feelings are winning.
Whatever....TO HELL WITH DEFEAT!!!
The feelings are still there but you know what...I have developed a new love for jogging...ie the exercise part is going on wonderfully... It's just the food...
So these are my goals for the next four weeks
-- limit snacking on processed foods ( that also means you can't eat it at dinner, call it desserts). I will limt this to one day for the week
--enough of this drinking juices....when did I start drinking juices??? I used to have a bottle of water with me where I drank water all the tme. This will be 7 days per week
-- really observe my eating and determine the limit for portions to more protein and veggies and less carbs. Week1-observe foods eaten...week2-define the foods i should reduce and the foods i should increase...week3-set mini goals to achieve I should have defined this by week two and put into practice...week4-results and discussion...just like the scientist I am lol
Do you feel to give up too...how do you beat these feelings?
