Weight this morning 90.5kg from 91.2kg the day before! <800grams.
Yesterday, was tough! I had so much "mind talk" about wanting to quit and how hard I wanted to quit & I had so many justifications for it as well!!
First thing today, was NO different!! I went to Yoga and had the same "mind talk" going on in my head and 1/2 way through I was thinking this is "too hard" AGAIN!!!!
Yoga turned out to be the "turning point" for me, after it I showered up and met with my lovely lady and daughter, I was still rough at this point, however an hour later when having my "main meal" at 2:30pm I thought, I've done it!!!
This is the "turning point" and I quietly ate my lunch with no "mind talk" to combat with!! I was at "peace"!!!
So I'm hoping Day 1 and 1/2 of Day 2 were my "hardest days"....... I'm hoping :-)
What my day looked like:
- 7am: Drink Lemon/Ginger
- 7:15am Wheat Grass drink
- 8am Veggie Juice
- 8:30am to 1pm MIND TALK Galore!!!
- 10am Yoga
- 11:45am Green Tea
- 1pm Meditation
- 2:30pm Main Meal = Brown Rice, steamed veggies & raw veggies
- 5:30pm Veggie Juice = Carrot and Apple
- 7:30pm Veggie Juice
- 9pm Wheat Grass & H20
- 9:20pm Peppermint Tea
So Day 2 is now done and I think I'm "over the hill" with so much crap filtering through my head and my low energy levels!!!
Energy Levels: They are a bit low due to the drop in calories, I haven't done the math on how many calories I'm consuming however I would guess that it's 1/2 of what I normally consume
Mind Talk in my Head: This is interelated with the above, when ever you go "cold turkey" your body goes through some form of 'withdrawls' & mine is having less calories......
Part of my "belief system" is I DON'T GO HUNGRY!! It's part of Maori Culture to have food regardless of occasion i.e. death, happiness etc... So to be hungry is a real challenge to me!! If I've wanted to get leaner I eat more veggies/protein and less carbs BUT I don't go hungry (or real hungry)! So this is/was my biggest challenge to date, shifting my perception around this......
What's installed for me tommorrow?
I have no idea but I'm starting to actaully enjoy it now...... right I'm off for my peppermint tea :-)
