This is a tough, tough journey. I guess what makes this journey different from many others is that we do still need to eat. It's not like we can quit our "vice" cold turkey, right? We still need to fuel our bodies.
I have learned so much about myself on this journey. I am learning that it's ok to feel hunger pangs. I hadn't felt them in years, now I feel them every day . . . and guess what?!? I didn't die!! I'm still here!!
I've also learned that I'm pretty tough & that I can hang with the big dogs pretty well in the gym. It's an honor to see some of the newbies try to hang with ME for a change.
Fuel your body with healthy stuff. That nasty sugary stuff just makes you feel terrible anyway. Look how beautiful this is -- all the pretty colors!!
Fruits make a great dessert because if you haven't been eating a bunch of sugary junk, the fruit tastes so much sweeter. I think our taste buds become deadened somehow by eating that processed goop.
Today, work for it!! Work for your dream!!
One other thing I've learned about myself -- I ENJOY going to the gym. Who'd a thunk, right?
I was at work yesterday & I was thinking about going to the gym later in the day & I felt excitement!! I know how great I feel after an awesome workout. I never thought I'd get to that point in my life, but I finally have!
Do three things today that lead to your dream. Just keep pushing . . . the best is yet to come!!
Blessings to you!!
