Recognizing how it makes me feel
Monday, March 25, 2013
About 3 weeks ago I had just taken wheat out of my diet for just over a week. I was eating 90% clean and workouts and sleeping were on target. I distinctly remember thinking "I feel really good, it's amazing how good I feel". I've been eating pretty clean for over a year but I just had a moment where I REALLY felt the results.
Speed to today - I've fallen off the wagon a little, had a little too much St. Pat's celebrating that carried over to other days and although I don't feel bad I don't feel great. The kind of great that makes you think "holy cow - this is awesome".
So today I was ready to get back on track, had my head focused, and was ready for the challenge. But every time I turn around I want to eat! Then it hit me - darn PMS arrived at the same time. Yes, I'm frustrated that it's going to be harder. Yes, I'm frustrated that after 4 years some of these choices still have to be made every day but I'm not giving up. I'm using this blog to remind myself how great I know I can feel and trying to use that to keep on track.
I know the end result will be totally worth it!
