A Bootcamping I will go

Sunday, March 03, 2013

After an intense couple of weeks DH and I took a weekend away up in Vermont. It was so beautiful. It snowed all the time. Not heavy snow, just constant big white flakes that covered the ground with a gentle hush. The snow did something to the cell towers so no calls could get to us atop the mountain. The dogs ran free and played. The ground below the mountain paths was icy so I didn't get much walking in.

DH made me a rich and hearty beef stew with homemade bread and rich fresh butter. I haven't had any grain for over 20 days.. I wanted to not eat the bread but, my spirit weakened. After second piece the carbohydrate monkey woke up.. and I gobbled up a dessert of rich chocolate ice cream, followed by more followed by candy and ... So no weekly reward for me.

The sugar left me feeling icky, I didn't sleep well and felt bloated this morning.
I understand that approximately three weeks after a habit change there is something called "extinction burst" when the new habit(s) disappear in favor of old behavior(s). So there's a technical term for what happened but that doesn't make it any more frightening. You see, I've begun to look different. People aren't sure what's different but they know something is. I have been looking 10+ years older than I am, an sincerely want to look younger.
It's no coincidence that my daily Bible meditation compared the qualities necessary become fit with those necessary to become physically fit. Ha!! God guides.
So my reward is postponed until I can complete next week with strength and discipline. I need to shake up my routine and recommit so, I doing the bootcamp for at least the next 7 days.
