I saw a picture today and knew I had to post it.
I tend to like motivational photos (because I’m cheesy like that), I like the optimistic ones like:
Particuarly since I’m my own worst critic and it’s part of how I self-sabotage.
Then I saw this one and realized I needed to keep it in mind too. There are things that are more important to me then carbs. WAY more important.
So how am I doing?
I was down four pounds my first week with minimal exercise. I used to be one of those people who’d start a diet and immediately launch my kill-yourself-with-brutal-workouts-twice-a-day girl. This time I decided to give myself a break and let my body adjust to my new daily calorie intake before I do crazy stuff. I walked a little, I swam a little. Nothing much, nothing crazy, just enough to get moving a little bit. I think it has worked way better for me.
Today starts week two although I started my dietbet a little late so the numbers there are off slightly. I’m okay with that as long as I manage my 4%.
Did I realize these statements were true before I saw the photos? Of course. But there is something powerful about seeing them in writing. I appreciate that.
Week two, bring it on.
