Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!
We weigh in again on Monday!
We’re coming up on 4 full weeks into this 90 Day Challenge, with today being Day 26 of 90.
This is when a lot of people start dropping out and giving up. Or at least feel like it or consider it…
Maybe they’ve screwed up so bad already they don’t see the point in even trying to continue or complete the challenge. Maybe they’ve given up on their goal.
If you feel that way, I want to encourage you to start back today. Just jump right back in! We ALL screw up. We all doubt ourselves, we all deal with our own personal failures or fears, we all have “real life” to deal with.
Make This Decision Today: Do I want to get back in the driver’s seat, take control, and start losing weight and getting healthier? Or do I want to gain back the weight I have lost, spiral downward for awhile, and make it even harder to start back later?
It IS your choice! 🙂
I have to make that choice every single day. Some days I have to make it every hour, lol. That’s okay. Just consider this little truth:
The desire to give up is temporary.
The desire to be healthier & happier is always there.
You don’t have the option NOT to make a choice. You’re either eating and living healthy or you’re not. So even if you think you’re “just taking a break” – that is a decision. Every decision brings results. So a decision is easy:
What results do you want?:)
I would really love to hear how things are going, how you’re feeling, and what you’re enjoying most or struggling with most! On that note…
How are weekends for you? Do you struggle more or less on weekends? I’ve heard a lot of people say that weekdays are easier because of the structure and schedule, and weekends are harder because of downtime and social obligations.
It’s opposite for me. I tend to cook more and eat better on weekends, lol – but that’s how I use the quieter, less structured time in my schedule Friday through Sunday.
My last two days of low carb meals (Wednesday and Thursday) weren’t all that exciting. I’ve been really busy and just eating when I had to, basically: eat for fuel.
I haven’t had a lot of interest in food other than to curb the hunger. No real “food enjoyment” – but then, I’ve been focused on and enjoying other things…
Here’s a quick view of my low carb meals the last 2 days:
I’ve been having my low carb cereal for breakfast as usual.
The top middle picture is Johnsonville Kielbasa and scrambled eggs. The top right picture is my snack last night: pecan halves & string cheese.
The bottom row of pictures is all low carb fast food…
I had a Bunless Sonic Cheeseburger (bleh) on a low carb tortilla (bleh,lol).
I had sausage & fried eggs from McDonald’s – always an easy favorite.
And for dinner last night I had Wendy’s Chili (a small is 15 net carbs).
I haven’t exercised at all this week. Usually I get in at least one big fun fitness adventure, and do some strength training at home. Oh wait – I did walk a little over a mile on Monday morning, lol. Does that even count?:) I need to REALLY get in the swing of things so I can tone up. I lost all of my weight just eating low carb, but I’m on a serious mission to tone up what’s left of me (lol) – so I need to get back at it!
How are things going for you?
