Ah ha moment
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Two blogs in one day. I just had an ah ha moment. I used to fast. 7 day water fasts, 28 day juice fasts, random 3 day broth diets...I had an all or nothing approach to food. So I just realized that if I can starve my body for 7 days having nothing but water, I definitely have a lot of will power. So I just need to put that will power towards this.
I suddenly feel inspired. I kinda thought that I could do this but now I KNOW I can. I'm allowed to eat on this plan! If I can starve to lose weight, I can eat to lose weight.
I also realized that negativity really is the devil. Another thing I kinda knew but today I dealt with a truly negative person and realized that trying to help them was like beating my head against a wall. Every bit of advice offered was immediately shot down and an excuse was given. I finally had to just walk away. It finally hit me that by being negative you've ended the journey before you even laced up your shoes. So no more blogs calling myself gross and pathetic.
There isn't much I can control, but what I put in my body is something I can. Ah, I feel so refreshed, like I've got a sudden burst of motivation.
