Weight Loss Journey

Get It Out!!

June 1, 2016

 

I spent the better half of yesterday evening trying to make time go quicker. You see, I don’t do so well after about 6pm. The day is winding down and all of my caffeine is wearing off and this usually marks the end of all the good things I have done throughout the day.. Idle time for me can be destructive.

So, when I started hitting the skids…I felt the need to announce it aloud to my husband and continue to do so EVERY TEN MINUTES. He had to be so annoyed with me, but being the patient man he is and a little sick (he found my struggle amusing), he listened to every battle I encountered.

“Honey, I want chips” “Honey, I would eat a tub of ice cream” Bla, bla, bla….on it went.

Which brings me to this point…

IF YOU SHOULDN’T BE EATING IT…GET IT OUT OF THE HOUSE!!

Now, I have teenagers. Perfect scapegoat for anyone who wants a real reason to keep the junk. Yet, honestly, I would have to say to myself, “Why should they be eating it either?!” Understandbly, there are going to be those times…sleepovers, birthday parties, etc. Where the junk will make it’s way into your home. Somehow though, have you noticed that once it enters it seems to shack up permanently and wreak havoc on your goals and ambitions?

So my short advice to you.

Get it the HECK OUT.

Stop standing there. Go right now to your cupboards and throw away the junk. You know your nemesis. The one, two, twenty things that once ingested send you into a tailspin so bad that you would end up saying, “What weight loss/health goals are you talking about?!”

For me…it is ice cream, potato chips and french onion dip.

So long suckers.

If you have to imagine them riddled with some nasty bugs or tainted with poison, DO IT. Whatever mind game you have to play with yourself to rid yourself of that unnecessary temptation….JUST DO IT!

GOOD JOB!

As far as the rest of yesterday goes. I did 46 minutes on a bike. Ate pretty well, but not enough meals or water. I am getting there and am down a whole pound!

Well, I am closing out for the day. Night is closing in again. Let’s see how it goes. I got my secret weapons and better yet…the JUNK….

IS GONE!
