I need to focus on my why
Thursday, April 12, 2018
I need to get back on track before the track becomes so overgrown it cannot be found. It is so easy to get lost in the junk food jungle. Too make it even worse is that the junk food does not even taste good to me anymore and yet I keep shoveling it in.
It has to be because winter seems to be hanging on. But that ought not be an excuse.
My main why is that I want to feel energized when I eat something, not weighted down and feel like I am being pulled into a deep pit.
I just created what I am calling My Vanity Why (something I always thought ridiculous when doing the Beck Advantage card)
1. I'll look better
2. I'll wear a smaller size
3. I'll like what I see in the mirror
4. I'll be slimmer
5. I'll be more self confident
6. I'll have a flat tummy.
7. I'll feel energized
8. I'll feel as if I accomplished something important
I always drop out of the Beck Diet Solution, but I keep coming back to it and adopt some of the principles, so I am thinking it may actually be working for me. I think Doug Lisle has said that a recovering addict will have relapses on the way to recovery but if he/she sticks with it, then getting back on the road to recovery gets easier and the relapses start to get further apart.
As the song by Willie Nelson goes: On the road again, back on the road again.
