I feel like the universe is testing me today.

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Today I feel like I am being tested. I feel so weak but I really need to be strong. Today is our annual Valentine's party at work. Candy, cookies, cupcakes and chips are everywhere. Even some of my favorite treats have been taunting me. emoticon

Also the scale didn't move at all this week. There is always that inner voice that says emoticon "if you're doing things right and still not losing weight, why keep trying."

Then I had an argument with my girlfriend which sent my stress levels even higher. emoticon

I know that I can do this, this is my 3rd day without sugar but dang if it isn't really, really hard. emoticon

Tomorrow I am fasting which I am thoroughly looking forward to. I have a whole day off to rest and reflect and take care of Towanda. It is desperately needed. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you all for being amazing and supportive. emoticon

    You can do it! I believe in you!

    I think now would be a good time to reflect on the things besides the scale that exercise and discipline have brought you.. like looser clothing, that blog entry a little past where other people were saying you were an inspiration for them to work harder, and things like that.

    Overall, you KNOW that if you keep to the plan you will be so much more proud of yourself later.. and if you don't you are going to have to overcome kicking yourself again...

    Good luck!

    Just remember that the sugar withdrawal might make you a bit testy - like stopping smoking does! So hopefully your GF will understand and the argument will get resolved. Congrats on giving up the sugar - I have not been able to do that yet!

    Towanda! hahaha. I haven't heard that in a long time. One of my all-time favorite movies!! It takes roughly 2 weeks to kick that sweet tooth. The first few days are the most difficult so yes, the universe is kicking you, but it picks on everyone who confronts it as you are doing now.

    You are strong!!! emoticon
    Kick the universe right in the arse! emoticon

    You are going to conquer this because you are totally worth it!!! emoticon

    Temptations are horrible, especially when they are all around you at work. SO all the more rewarding when you have the power to ignore them. If you must make sure to just limit yourself to one and then adjust your food for the balance of the day or throw some more cardio in.

    Good luck.

    It's not always easy - but not giving up shows strength. Even if you make a mistake - don't take it too hard - just pick yourself back up and start again. Temptations are a difficult thing - especially when they are always in your face. Thank goodness, that is something I can control (not having things around the house) but back in the day and working - donuts, cookies, everything unhealthy. I am rooting for you!

    YOU can DO IT. I believe in you. Everyone has bad times. Forget them and just make yourself HAPPY!
