Recognizing how it makes me feel

Monday, March 25, 2013

About 3 weeks ago I had just taken wheat out of my diet for just over a week. I was eating 90% clean and workouts and sleeping were on target. I distinctly remember thinking "I feel really good, it's amazing how good I feel". I've been eating pretty clean for over a year but I just had a moment where I REALLY felt the results.

Speed to today - I've fallen off the wagon a little, had a little too much St. Pat's celebrating that carried over to other days and although I don't feel bad I don't feel great. The kind of great that makes you think "holy cow - this is awesome".

So today I was ready to get back on track, had my head focused, and was ready for the challenge. But every time I turn around I want to eat! Then it hit me - darn PMS arrived at the same time. Yes, I'm frustrated that it's going to be harder. Yes, I'm frustrated that after 4 years some of these choices still have to be made every day but I'm not giving up. I'm using this blog to remind myself how great I know I can feel and trying to use that to keep on track.

I know the end result will be totally worth it!

    The end result is so worth it. You are right, we have to make choices daily to stay on track and focused. Everyone goes through periods when it is harder to eat healthy and you don't feel at your highest motivation.

    You sound ready to start feeling great and ready to get on track. You can do it.
