Monday Morning...

Good Morning!

I battled through a bunch of resistance this morning to get my early morning work-out in, 31 days in a row as of today.

I feel really off the last few days though and honestly I can feel my motivation slipping a bit. I know most of the chatter in my head is bs and that I'm capable of hammering through it...but I am also really feeling spent, mentally, physicaly...but I cannot afford to tell myself it's ok to stop now.

Addiction, addictive thinking....it's like some crazy extreme terrorist group, wacko for sure, but tenacious and patient too.

I've got Legs for strength training today and my plan is to connect the dots and get it done, stick to my food plan and do another cardio session after dinner.

The irresponsible kid in me wants to just keep playing hooky and take another day off, hang out w/Cindy...order sub sandwiches and watch tv....but that is not gonna happen! I'm going to dig deep and remind myself of the real truth. You are extremely obese, you could drop any day, your life has gotten smaller as a result of your lifestyle, choices, addiction....give it your best today and trust the process!

Ok, I'm going to keep my commitment today...I hope everyone has a real smooth Monday, Ryan

    Hey you know...some days aren't all that inspiring...ya just kinda grind your way through the workout anyhow. Sorta like striking flint against stone...you don't get a spark every time, but you keep trying and then:

    VOILA! A SPARK! :-)

    Good for you to stick with it Ryan!

    Good choice Ryan. It's best to talk it through with yourself and perhaps with someone else that is encouraging to you. I realize we sometimes think we can't do it, but I realize more and more that any of us can do it. It's a mindset and it's a lifestyle, one that we can't quit. Thinking of the alternative is not pleasant. I vote to continue what we started and never look back, except to learn from our mistakes.

    You've got a great resource in Annette. Give her a call and see if she can shed some light...also you seen to get rejuvenated when you DW tries on of her fameous receipes...that may work eh?

    Also you know subs are ok..especially from Subway. One of my favorite weekend lunches is the Veggie Sub on whole wheat (no cheese) with fat free Sweet Onion and Red Wine Vinegarette...it's really good and good for you...

    Contrats on protecting that streak!

    Just remember, you can choose what you want right now (immediate gratification), or you can choose what you really want - to live a long and healthy life with your beautiful wife!! You know what you need to do and you can do it!!!

    Ryan, you can certainly get through this but no, it isn't always easy. The fact is that our 'old ways' are comfortable to us...so we always gravitate back to that. It almost sounds crazy when we know how much we hated the confinement of that old life...but it is how we are. Hang in there, this will pass!

    Up your caloric intake a little bit -to at least 1,600 Kcal a day, as it is considered to be the lowest limit for healthy continuous weight loss! You are underfeeding yourself and trust me this is a safe way to cause harm. I know, I've been there...
    Include some dark 70% chocolate -10 to 20 g- a day. Also consider supplementing with a multivitamin , B-complex, some Omega-3, and eat fish at least 4 times a week. All these help your your brain function better.
    You are doing fine, enjoy you new better Self, and aim for the BEST to come!!
