It is funny how words can play with your mind. I was going to give this post the title of “Weight Loss – Week three” but when it comes right down to it, If I say I have lost four pounds in two weeks, that sounds okay, if instead I say, “Weight Loss – Week Three, I have lost four pounds,” it doesn’t sound quite as good. It sounds like it took me three weeks to lose four pounds when it actually only took me two weeks.
Yes, I lost another two pounds, so that is four pounds in two weeks. I started out really good at the beginning of the second week. I was up to 6 bottles of water a day, eating more protein and fibre, less carbohydrates, but then, life happened. I got busy. The last two days I have had French fries for supper, nothing else. I did not drink any water. Last night when I couldn’t sleep I munched on some cookies my husband had “hidden” in plain sight. I opened the cupboard door looking for something to munch on at 1 am and there they were. It was so easy, just to reach in and grab them. He’s usually much better at keeping that stuff out of my sight. He either keeps them in his vehicle or downstairs in his office. I will have to give him a reminder to keep them away from me because, as I have said before, I have no will power. Also the fact that I lost two pounds the first week without even trying, other than drinking water and a few less carbs, I got over-confident in my weight loss.
I have not yet started exercising. I must start that this week and today I am back into drinking water and no French fries this week. I must start using my own advice for positive thinking as well and start telling myself I don’t need the junk food, that I want to eat healthy and exercise. Yes tonight I will totally meditate and start doing that every night to convince myself I don’t need the junk food.
Diet is what you eat, not how you eat. It is either healthy, or not. This week was a lesson to practise what I preach. Meditate, exercise, drink water and stay away from carbs and sugar.
Better luck next week. It isn’t luck though is it? It is my own way of thinking. Habits are hard to break, but this week I am breaking the junk food cycle. I’ll check in next week.
I’m Frazzled Again.
