Yesterday started out with a bang as I pushed almost 3 miles on the treadmill, fasted in the morning and stayed strong with a positive attitude. When lunch came around I found myself in a restaurant after driving to a winery to check out the venue for my stepsons wedding. I woofed down a large cheeseburger and it was all over. That was at around 2:30 in the afternoon and was so much food that it was also the last meal of the day. This erratic behavior was cause for my body weight to increase along with my blood sugar.
The only good news is that today is a brand new day and I understand the mistake I made yesterday. I am angry and determined to make this day a positive one. If I can talk the talk, I can certainly walk the walk. It is far too easy to just sit here and write down the things I am going to do, but when it comes to action, I have to be continuesly mindful during the day to carry them out. It is this call to action today, just like other days that keeps me vigilant in my cause to increase my health status and what pushes me throughout my day to stay on course. All I have to do is remember it during the course of the day.
I have fat to burn off of my body and I can put in all of the effort I want through cardio and strength training, but if I continue to feed my body foods that cause it to store fat I will continue to stay off course. I need protein to build muscle like eggs and meats and vegetables to control every other function in my body. I do not not ever need to put grains and manufactured sugars and carbs in my body as my carbs should only be coming from natural sources like boilded sweet potato’s. I need to get this into my head and keep it there.
Paleo Hiker MD is currently doing the Whole 30 Diet and there have been so many other hints in the last 6 months like seeing the book lying in my doctor office that should have been an indication to me to jump on board. I have been experiencing so many difficulties with my eating habits that I do believe that it is time to make this move. I am going to order the book today and may be the next person you see on Word Press doing the Whole 30.
