Today did not start out well at all.
I hadn’t bought enough of the things I knew I’d want to eat, my eldest seems to LOVE my cucumber slices… and I woke up hungry, with the wonderfully delicious smell of eggs and bacon wafting through the air…… Yes…. I was not nice this morning. I acted a like a ‘cow on the hook’. Then I got my apple slices in me, still grumpy but can you blame me??? And then at 10 I got my shake in me and I was all good.
See…. I can’t eat when I wake up… I get up at 6am.. take my morning thyroid medication.. then I have to wait two hours to take anything herbal. I have to wait an hour before I can eat any food… So when they started making eggs and bacon.. and my stomach is growling and I know I can’t have any, and I can’t even sip on my coffee for 10 days, I lived up to my horoscope… Yup, I was a touchy bull this morning. Not fun.
But after I got some apple slices in me I was good, and the shake…. Oh that delicious Nectar of the Gods… I was golden.
I’m not joking about this shake people… It’s ‘to Die for Delicious’. Even my 11 yr old, who is fighting me tooth and nail on eating salads, loves and steals my shake. He asked me this evening if he could have one of my shakes with dinner… Nope.. Not happening.. That deliciousness is all Mommy’s, and she ain’t sharing.
So I felt much more chipper, I have color in my skin, and even if I can’t see it, I can tell by how my clothes are fitting that I’m loosing weight. (Yes, I’ve been checking the mirror & resisting the temptation to look at the scale.)
Today was my hard day. I considered eating meat, potatoes, eggs & bacon… but I didn’t. I listened to my teeny tiny voice saying “If you give up and give in then you will never reach that end goal. It’s only 10 days.” Man I wanted that voice to shut it. I had texted “transformation” to a number I was given the day before I started so I am getting daily quotes, and things to help keep me going. These two really helped me:
“Can you overcome what you want today for what you can have forever?
Self Control is a beautiful thing!”
“Today is the toughest for most people. Don’t worry, it starts getting better really soon!”
So it is with great pleasure that I can say, I listened to that small, itty-bitty, teeny tiny voice… and I stayed true to my commitment. I am going to do this. I will loose all the weight that I shouldn’t be carrying around, and I will look and feel healthy. I will end out this year, not just the 10 days, on a high note and be the person I want to be. And I will do it, one day at a time, one step at a time. 🙂
