I must get back to the routine again and stop playing games with this T2D. Again, yesterday with no workout because of a stupid hangover and eating a freakin hotdog in a bun, and then Mexican Food for dinner I suppose that I shouldn’t expect too see my morning glucose level this morning to be low.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the trap of continuous screw ups right after a major one, and getting back on track is just a passing thought. You know the feeling when you eat something your not supposed to eat and then afterwards you just say to yourself, “Well I already messed up, it can’t hurt to mess up a few more times”. But the truth is that it is not good for health, or you mind as you live in constant guilt afterwards. So how do we get past this? I am drawing a line in the sand and declaring that as of this very moment I will be back on track. I still have about 15 pounds of body fat to burn on this 54 year old body and it’s time to get busy. I am drawing a line in my daily notebook and declaring a commitment to the new routine that I developed, which includes bringing cardio back into the mix. Starting tomorrow I am starting a new notebook and will have the new routine spelled out on the first page and I will follow it all the way down to 12% body fat. I will follow the Paleo Diet like a scientist and keep my carb intake below 35 grams each day.
I really don’t feel like working out today and what that means to me is that it is time to get my ass out to the garage and workout. As my mind plays tricks on me and trying to convince me that I will be much happier if I just kept putting carbs and sugar into my stomach life would be much easier. Biochemically my body is satisfied with this type of habit as the brain receives the instant energy it wants much quicker than forcing it to stay in balance. These thoughts are strong and demanding and I will not cave into them. I am strong and willing to sacrifice the pleasure right now for the pleasure I will find 6 months from now as I will be much healthier than today.
