...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"
