Wake Up Call
Saturday, March 29, 2014
Woke up this morning... weighed myself. Thought I was going to cry. Most I've ever weighed in my life.
But instead of wallowing in my weight. I did something about it. I took all my measurements. I tracked them on here. I started a cleanse with a friend of mine, who is on beyonddiet.com She shared all the information with me. I'm not going to lie. I was skeptical, I was scared, I was nervous but I said, forget it. I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!
Besides the headache I've had all day-- which could be allergies or the lack of coffee, I feel pretty good. The food on day 1 has been pretty good, I was surprised-- I was also surprised by the lack of calories in the cleanse-- but I get it, apparently there is a science to it or something. I just know that I want to stick with it for the 9 days to restart and begin back on my healthy eating. I'm not aiming for perfect though-- If I keep this headache, I'm adding in more calories/nutrition. Tomorrow's breakfast is two eggs scrambled with veggies though, so I figure that will be a very filling, nutrient rich way to begin my day.
So, instead of beating myself up for letting my weight get out of control, I'm being solution focused-- I am going to get healthy. This weight is going to hit the road (as am I with my walking!!) I can do this. I have a wedding dress to wear in 6 months. Past time to get serious, but not too late!
What do you think about cleanses? I've always been skeptical. Do you think they can be helpful tools to get you back on track or do you think they're too restrictive?
(The new job is great, I will update soon-- just been a lot of reading & office time & getting invited to eat out for lunch! I get to make my own schedule beginning next week, I will PACK my lunch!! Healthy choices!)
