Sunday Update: April 12, 2015

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!

 

Welp, another Sunday has come, which means it is once again time for me to post about my (hopeful) success.  I do hope you all had a happy Easter, and that it has been a great week all around.

This would have been posted much earlier today, but as I mentioned previously, life happened and my job has taken me on the road.  On the plus side, I get to visit with Lincoln for the day (hi asshole!).

Anyways,  I will still do the update next week, but I am probably taking the week off from the gym (unless I can make it to one).  Which is not a bad thing.  Taking a break from the gym is great, and it lets your body relax and recover.

I was talking things over with the other half (hi Stef!) and after her being gone for two weeks, and her coming, she has noticed a definite improvement, which I didn’t notice (see previous rant).  Which made me very happy, and is awesome encouragement to keep going.

I feel awesome.  More energy again, able to relax more, I don’t feel as much stress from “Janice-the-bitch-that-called-me-fat-but-doesn’t-even-know-me” (by the way, this is not her real name.  It’s just a generic title, so Janice if you read this, it is not actually intended for you).  Working out has tons of benefits.

I’ve delayed enough.  To the meat and potatoes!

Huzzahs!  I’m going down!  Unfortunately not as fast as the Toronto Maple Leafs (if you’re a sports fan, or just Canadian, that’s funny).  Anyways, I’m doing something right, and that’s the key.

I’m not going to lie, I haven’t been strict, and I have chowed down on candy and other items that are delicious, of the devil, and not good for me.  But that’s okay.  You need to, as it helps long term.  I had some, enjoyed it, craving is gone, and I’m more happy happy!  And less stabby stabby.  How did I do it without putting it all back on?  I didn’t binge on five pounds!  I had enough to satisfy myself, and I went about my day.  That’s the trick though, isn’t it?

Making yourself feel satisfied is the answer.  That and not guilting yourself when it happens is also very key.  If you have it, don’t worry, you haven’t fucked up.  One cheat item/meal isn’t the end of the world.
