I need to make a change. A real life altering change. NOW!
I'll be 45 years old sometime this month and I've spent the last year trying and not quite succeeding at maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Saturday night was a major wake up call.
No better time than the present.
I'm really tired of starting over and over and over again so I tested myself on Sunday. I skipped my usual big delicious weekend breakfast and instead had two boiled eggs, two boiled chicken wieners and whole wheat toast with a cup of caf-lib (coffee replacement). Lunch consisted of a half cup of sliced strawberries, a banana and half an orange along with lots of lemon water. Dinner was a bowl of Quaker oatmeal. Snack was a sliced apple that I never completely devoured. By the end of the night my belly felt better. A lot better. Not bloated, no gas, I didn't feel hungry. I had plenty of fibre (if you know what I mean). Only problem is I also had a major migraine most likely caffeine withdrawal. The question now is can I maintain this good habit longer? Can I keep up with eating better on a regular day when I'm at work or passing by the local cafe.
I really don't have any faith in myself at this point. I guess I need to take it one day at a time rather than aim for a month, or a week at a time. One day. Just ONE DAY. I succeeded on Sunday now lets see how Monday works out. I didn't bother with weighing myself because right now it's not about weight, it's about a small change. One day. I can't begin to think of what to do at the end of the week because I need to stay focused on ONE DAY.
One day at a time to work on my will power.
One day at a time.
