I made my Sunday cook up simpler today and I gave myself extra time to go for a nice long run in the beautiful sunshine! :D

That was a great decision, Kruddock.  I hope your endurance and stamina increases with each passing day.

came back from my off-roading adventure weekend and went straight into a compliant, template meal. Rinse and repeat this morning and this afternoon. I'm already feeling better!

Today, I watched a doctor give a brief news clip for the reasons why shows for overweight individuals do not give lasting results.

 

It's exactly what I've learned from a Whole 30.   If you don't find a deeper reason for your desire to lose weight, it will not stay off.  A person has to find a program that works and make it their own.  Bingo. 

 

He said those who jump right back into their former habits rebound with every pound.  He reported for any weight loss to be maintained, which is just as much of a challenge as losing it....the program has to be your own.

 

A Whole 30 with a Slow Roll Reintroduction Plan is something you can learn from.  You then create your own program.  I call it my Positive Food Management Program.   I've adopted new habits through the Whole 30, individualized and personalized it.   It is the deeper reason that has enabled me not to rebound with a single pound after 15 months.  

 

He strongly said that dieting for the sake of dieting never works long term.   How well, I know that. Diet is a four letter word.  Truth.

I just brought the bag of corn chips from my house to the office and put them in the communal pantry.  I had bought them for an off-road weekend, had a handful, and am done with them so why keep them around?

Do you know someone who's only happy when it rains

Only feels good when things are going wrong

Only listens to the sad, sad songs

 

Use courage...tell them they need a Whole 30

I have the luxury of not multi-tasking.   I am 100% engaged in what I'm doing. dizzy-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif?12927937 They say...whoever they are that multi-tasking only causes more distractions.  You get more done with focus.  music-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif?12927937

Be Present.  If I'm eating, I'm eating.  Not making a grocery list in my head.

Not wondering what athletes eat.  Not rushing, not worrying.  Not reviewing last year's events.

My meal times are a bit off today due to a long workout which pushed meal one way back. I thought about just waiting until meal 3 to eat, but I have to attend a potluck tonight and I was a bit afraid of what I would do once I got there and was in the "eat ALL the things!" mood. So- I decided on a smallish meal of broccoli, well fed's Italian pork with a big dollop of freshly made mayo, and half an apple. Pretty sure I'm in a good place to make th best decision possible tonight (I'm not on whole30 at th moment, but eat as close to it as possible for most meals).

After a weekend off-schedule, off-template and with too many off-road ingredients, I decided to get back on for a Whole7 to straighten back out. I went 100% compliant yesterday and feel so much better for it! And now attacking Day 2//7 with gusto. :D

Create a series of meaningful words that motivate YOU.  Your own spoken word theme track.  It may change but use it until a better theme suits you.

Take kindly the counsel of the years....

 

The cumulative years of wise counsel trumps think so and good guesses. It's wiser to ask ahead of time than start over later.
