Almost A Week Into 2015

Tuesday, January 06, 2015

I started this year, as I do most years, with a blank page. I turned the page of 2014 and thought of all the possibilities of a new year, a new chapter. I was, and am, ready to make this year the best year. I started another round of whole30. If you would like to check it out go to whole30.com/ Through the first round I learned that it all really does begin with food. Like it or not!! I learned how to make ghee (clarified butter) and homemade sausage without sugars and other stuff our bodies can't process. I also learned I do have the power to actually stick to something. It was rough, but life has been rougher...I completed it when everyone else thought I couldn't. Talk about some self pride...lol. This round, just days into it, I have already met some challenges, and met them head on. You are not suppose to weigh yourself during these 30 days...but i can't help it... that 's where my self control loses out...lol. And I am happy to announce that i lost the 5 lbs that i had gained at the end of 2014. Wohoo!!! Yes, I did a happy dance. And I'll be honest, it's what kept me keeping on when my boss asked me to work a double...normally it would of been yes sir and i would of gone and got some fast food...well none of that... i have goals to meet...so i agreed if only i could go home for a couple hours, do some housework, get some coffee and put together a dinner that was acceptable for my present way of eating...and that is exactly what i did...thankfully i did make some emergency meals over the weekend...though no, i didn't plan on relying on it so quickly...lol. One thing I have come to realize is that excuses don't work...hard work and dedication works... yes, we have to be flexible also, but not rely on excuses to get to the person we want to be. So flexibility without excuses is what i practiced this morning. After only getting 3 1/2 hours sleep due to said work schedule...i still need to work out...past would of had me saying forget it...this morning though i said, ok, let's not go to the gym...cut the driving time out and i was able to get that 1/2 hour extra sleep (it would of only been 3 otherwise) and we put in a workout video...score...mission accomplished...stayed on goal, flexible but no excuses either...will this whole year be that way...eh, probably not...lol. but i can hope it's starting to sink in...i can hope i stick to it just as good... but the truth is...i am also human...and i may faulter a bit in the future...but for now...for these past 6 days...i am right on target with the person i want to be...wohoo, go me emoticon
