Day 6 was a doozy. No matter what I did – I was hungry. And it’s not like i could “do” much. I drank much water. Ate many veggies. Right through me. Like I did nothing at all. I had to pull the ole go-to-sleep-so-i-dont-feel-hungry trick from back in poverty days. I got to the point of being really surly and really snippy. I couldn’t take it anymore and I was cursing the heavens. “If I don’t see a change tomorrow… I don’t know what WHAT I’ll do!”
Day 7 -Weigh in day
Shows that I’m down 4.2 lbs. from day 1.
That says it all. I’ll be launching myself forward for the next 6 weeks. I just needed to see SOME semblance of progress. Working out 3 times a day for 12 weeks didn’t move that scale an inch. If I could just harness this downward trend… I can turn this into a (good) slippery slope.
Makes me really look at carbs though. Firstly – those things are delicious. But how much damage are they doing? And coupled with how readily accessible they are… This society is doomed. I could and have literally eaten carbs all day… But it’s so dangerous… There’s no wonder why there’s this epidemic of diabetes now. It’s almost self (as in the country) induced.
Gotta stay on it. I might actually hit this mark….
