Welcome to Chrisbodia...DAY 1 Year 0
Well, enough with the resting on my laurels.
I have been very happy with my 110 lb loss..
wearing pretty clothes....
doing the hair....
getting happy with the makeup...
I need to recapture some of that desperate focus I had early in my journey.
The same focus Allen has with his journey.
It may be normal for some of that sense of urgency to leave once you hit near normal...but it wreaks havoc with forward momentum.
So to better keep my goal in mind I have posted some pictures all over the house to remind myself that though I am better, I am not there yet.
I put the above photo next to my bed...Jillian is 5'2 and 120 lbs.
I am 5'4 and want to be 132 lbs. I won't look 'just' like that..but will be decently close so It's a good facsimile
I am going to start doing my posts in segments...mental, spiritual, physical.
I will be blogging once per day.
This should help keep me focused.
I am going to give myself some limits and goals for the next little while, till I get to goal.
I am going to drink at least 12 cups a day.
No white flour products....to include noodles.
nothing but la tortilla wraps and whole grain bread.
I looked at my stats and at least 2 people have found my blog looking for the wraps.
So I say again.
la tortilla factory wraps... Use them.
They are awesome.
One cup of coffee.
This pains me.
I am using way too many calories on coffee.
I need food, not coffee.
Three servings of veggies and low glycemic fruits.
That means apples, not bananas.
*yes, that is the sound of weeping.
These are all things that cause horrendous cravings.
Stay focused. Don't allow excuses to creep in.
Things like...'you did great this week, you look good...have a little party in your mouth Chris'
I want to build on momentum, not use it as an excuse to coast.
Practice open handed giving.
Giving while getting nothing in return.
Reading the bible daily.
And letting go of irritation when life gets in the way of my plans.
(Or some idiot driver gets in the way of my left turn.)
Those will be my goals for the next five weeks.
I will try to give specifics as I go on...
About how I am doing with these items.
For those who are interested in the mental it will be first up.
The second part will be spiritual
The third will be what exercise and what food I ate that day.
If I want to reach my goal of 132 lbs this decade I am going to need to kick this thing into gear.
hold one...this decade ends on December 31rst, doesn't it...hmmmm.
I am not doing any sort of guaranteed weight loss by this date thingy.
I don't believe in that.
That is a recipe for failure.
But I will have made significant progress by December 31rst.
Because I am going to go back to the basics.
Back to exercise, calorie counting and clean eating.
It's Day one, Year Zero every day here in Chrisbodia.
Yesterday doesn't count...Tomorrow isn't promised.
Today is all I have.
Have a good one guys.
