Two Weeks In
Monday, January 10, 2011
Two weeks in and I can honestly say that I am as committed as ever!
I'm down 7 pounds total (please don't do the math because I am ashamed of how much I put on between Thanksgiving and Christmas). I'm only down one pound this week but I am OK with that because THERE IS NO ACCEPTABLE DIRECTION BUT FORWARD!!!!
I only made one slip (aka binge, or "episode of unplanned eating") which I analyzed on the Resolution/Revolution team page AND in my blog. That was VERY EMPOWERING and a real deviation from my standard operating procedure. Normally I don't record anything "bad" and I never ever admit it happened. So that feels like a real step forward. I don't plan on blogging about every extra lettuce leaf I consume, BUT -- going through the kitchen cupboards like a heat-seeking missle on a mission is no longer acceptable behavior!
I've met almost all my daily goals this week: I've read and taken notes on a self-improvement book every morning (I'm up to Chapter 5 thankyouverymuch!) This is turning out to be very enjoyable -- it sets my intention for the day. I've recorded all my food, drunk water like a drowning woman, exercised at least 30 minutes, and totally abstained from alcohol. I missed my vitamins once but -- hey, I had to leave a little room for improvement!
So today starts Week 3, and I feel calm and committed. It will probably take all of January to get back to the weight I was before Thanksgiving but that's OK -- maybe this is the time I really "get it" -- there is no cheating, there is no making deals with myself, there are no halfway measures -- this is my life, and if I want to be thin, I have to do the work ALL THE TIME. I'm either all in or all out.
I'm making a commitment to be ALL IN! How about you??
