I started a new plan for the next 21 days and overall it’s a HAPPY DAY!
I’m happy I made it through the day for 1, and I’m happy about things to come.
Truth be told, I ordered the kit I started today months ago. But, I kept finding reasons….excuses maybe….that it wasn’t the right time to start. And, maybe I just really needed to be ready but I also think it had a lot to do with just making the decision to do it already!
I waited because of holidays…..vacations…..long weekends….social events…..and also because I didn’t wanna give up my more intense workouts for the better part of a month.
But, I finally decided ok enough is enough. There is ALWAYS going to be something. It’s never gonna be quite the right time. And, MAYBE just maybe, I’ll never be completely ready!
So, I just made the decision to start.
And, then I decided to let myself enjoy some treats lol. So, last week, I had one of my fave things every day……one day I had sushi ~ one day a diet coke ~ one day some pizza ~ one day some popcorn ~ AND, last but CERTAINLY not least, one day A CUPCAKE! We had a winter carnival here on Sunday for the kids and B won me a cupcake! How sweet is that?!? And, it was DELISH.
Here it was just in case you wanted to see it lol 🙂 The frosting was so so good!
So, after enjoying most of my fave treats last week, this weekend I got to work planning out my meals and grocery shopping!
Today’s food was so good! Overnight oats with fresh berries, quinoa salad with veggies and hummus and rice & beans with a sweet potato. For easier food prep and to save some time and money, I’ll be having these same meals for the next 3 days. And, then I’ll be switching it up for the last 3 days of Phase 1.
So, the successes today? The food was good ~ supplements were good except something called Power Greens.
Ha, that was kinda rough but put some lemon in it and just drank it really fast! And, there’s a new yoga program on #BOD just for the Reset! It felt amazing.
And, the struggles for today were going with coffee and not taking any candy out of my bosses office!! Oh, AND, taking before pics and weighing in was kinda tough for me BUT I’m feeling good and hopeful about what I’m doing and where I’m going….so, it’s all good! Since I’m not focusing on weight loss with this, I decided to weigh in this morning and then I won’t be weighing in again until day 22 🙂 I’m going to measure my progress on how I’m feeling, how I’m sleeping, and how my clothes are fitting!
And, had to share this since I was just talking about waiting and not being ready for change.
I don’t think we’re ever completely ready.
You just have to decide if the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change.
