Ever wonder...

...why our minds affect us so much?

The Biggest Loser Challenge 22 has been over for 2 weeks now and the next doesn't start for 2 weeks. For the past 2 weeks I have been coasting. During BLC 22 I gave up caffeine, sugar and wheat and felt AWESOME. Since we were "done" with the challenge I thought I might try these things again. BAD IDEA. They truly are drugs to me and once I start, it is harder and harder to stop. I have again cut these foods from my diet because I just can't handle them. If I drink caffeine I get tons of energy but can't wind down so I stay up to late which leads to more caffeine the next day and since didn't get much sleep my food choices are poor and then I am tired and I don't want to exercise and the cycle continues.

So I am not waiting until tomorrow or until the next challenge starts. I start NOW! I have my training calendar figured out for the next 13 weeks and I am ready to stick with these lifestyle changes for good! . No cheats or treats for me!! I just can't handle them.

My daily goals -
1) Spend time with God first thing in the morning
2) Drink 8+ cups of water
3) Eat 5+ freggies
4) Exercise everyday for at least 10 minutes
5) NO caffeine, sugar or wheat

I will try to do them all but this week, #1 is my main focus. Then I will add each one each week.

I am working to "Crave God, not food"

    The head games are so fun! This has been the first time I've cut grains from my diet, its been 5 weeks now. For the first time in my life weight loss does not include suffering, my energy levels have not been this high since, probably high school. I have no cravings. I hope I will stick with this because there is not a food I've eaten that makes me feel this good. Tell your head the bad foods don't make you feel good so they must be poison, stay away!

    I know the past couple weeks for me have been a real shake-up of my regular routine. My exercise has been slacking and my tracking just hasn't been happening. Overall, I am making good nutrition choices (or so I THINK anyway, since I haven't been actually tracking it!! emoticon )

    I am with you starting TODAY!!
