60 day juice feast: letting go of emotional ties
Saturday, December 01, 2012
My updates are getting more and more infrequent. I am just going with the flow right now. It is getting a bit harder to stay focused on the goal. The rewards are numerous but being around food as often as I am makes things very hard. Tho I have not eaten a thing, I sure am mad about it sometimes. I think this is all a mourning process really. To get over the addiction to food one has to cross a lot of emotional highways I think. I know I would be severely disappointed if I stopped now. I know I will complete this fast, Yah willing. Some days are just more of a mental battle. I keep looking at my goals and praying through my prayer requests, waking up early to read Scripture has given me spiritual clarity and encouragement.
Physically I feel great! I have lost weight. I feel more energized. I sleep great, I don’t wake up unless the baby needs me. I am walking with a friend and getting stronger. I would like to add in more strength training. My days are filled right now and I just don’t have time for it. Perhaps things will slow up soon. If not, I am ok with that too. A wife and a mom has many responsibilities and I gladly take them on.
Some books and documentaries I would like to recommend that have helped me stay motivated are listed below. Bye for now :)
