Learning and applying that's what it's about
Thursday, May 20, 2010
Well I am close to midpoint of my journey and challenge. next week I will be half way through with P90X lean. Since I began that part I have lost about 12 pounds and I am feeling both victory and sadness.
The sad part is I have learned that I am a carbaholic. I like to eat pretzels, nuts, ice cream and other sliders. Before Monday the 17th I allowed 1 free day a week in which I would allow 1 snack in the above category. I have decided to put those on hold for a while. You see it never stops at 1 day for me. 1 bowl of ice cream leads to 3 days of craving or a binge snack attack. Until I really learn to control this I have decided almost of my snacks need to go away for now.
The victory is I have been working out really hard and I am getting close to being ready for my first 5k. After watching The Biggest Loser this week I wondered if I would ever be able to finish a marathon? Maybe not today but what about 6 months from now?
What I have learned:
Failure is going to come at times but I have to forget the past, learn from it and move Forward.
I have to learn to think of food as a fuel and not for comfort. That is what got me here in the first place. Again Biggest Loser helped me here. This week Daris was home and alot of his problems came back to him and he ate his way through his feeling which lead to a 2 pound gain. I can be the same. I need to get my feelings out. Trust God and keep moving forward.
Wonder what I will learn next week?
