Journey to Change – Day six – 7-20-16

Journey to Change

No plan, no pills, no programs – just better choices and determined commitment to those choices

Today is a very good day. I got up on time. I made my bed (which has fresh linens on it). I started my day with focus.

I’ve run into two big struggles so far – wanting to get on the scales (because I see them every time I walk into the bathroom) and forgetting to eat (when I am the only one around for the meal).

The first challenge is the toughest – because although I know that weight is not the only reason for making these changes, I also know that weight release will be an outward result of what I am doing. I keep reminding myself that it was a long journey here and this is only the first part of the long journey to a new and healthier life.

The second challenge is just a matter of changing my habits. I may have to regulate my meal time for a while until I get in the habit of eating when I am hungry and not when I am starving.

    ENGAGING: I was very active in livestreaming engagement and social media streams.

Recap of the Day

My energy level is not at its peak right now – something that I expect about once a month. Because I committed to getting up at 4:30 every morning, I’m still getting a lot done. Because I committed not to eat after 6:00 pm I am still maintaining better fuel consumption.

But I do think that I will be heading on to bed LONG before the sun makes its final bow behind the mountains tonight.

I’m just that tired.
