November 7, 2013 Day 4 of Phase One DASH Diet
I have been in a slump, pause or whatever you want to call it since I lost the 8 pounds in one week last round. It was as if my fat self was saying, "Ha, this is just a fluke...no way did you really lose 8 pounds in one week." My new soon-to-be-healthier self didn't fight hard enough and so the old fat self won. And there I was in the on-again off-again saga that I have become so familiar with. However,
Iím tired of the ďGroundhog DayĒ (movie) scenario of my life. I decided to take control (AGAIN) and began the D.A.S.H Diet Phase One 14 day (again). I started it on Monday, November 4 and am on day 4 today. Itís amazing what I did remember of this phase one and how easy it was to go right back to it. Why, oh Why, did I lose sight of what I wanted?????
Last time I treated this phase one as the kick start I needed to stabilize my metabolism and get the toxins out of my body. I made it the entire 14 days without any cheat and I felt great. So what happened?
The old fat self reared itís ugly negative head and started berating me. My new soon-to-be-healthy self listened instead of telling it to SHUT UP! AndÖ.Iím starting it over again. I got so close to Onederland and then self-sabotage set in. I havenít been in Onederland for so long, why didnít I keep going? What is holding me back from success?
These are the issues that I am journaling about and trying to fix. These are the issues that if not corrected will keep me from my goals every time.
I took another step toward victoryÖI begin with a personal trainer next week to mix things up and with the DASH I am going to PLOW through this pause, slump, stall or whatever you want to call it and COME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
VICTORY will be mine! You just stay tuned and see!
