The slip..I had a moment of weakness and ate my fruit carb after 6:00 as well as had a cracker. Just one. But still I felt incredibly guilty. BUT...unlike times of old I did not throw in the towel and say well bring on the pizza then, I've ruined it now, instead I took a deep breath went and re-read my 17 day diet book. Re-committed to the plan, and plastered a sign on my fridge that read "YOU CHEAT" YOU DON'T LOOSE!!" This has done the trick.
Cheating is such a funny thing isn't it. I mean who are we cheating? Ourselves our goal on the final day.
Here are my new commitments for the rest of my 11 days.
1- read some of the 17 day diet book everyday
2-Blog about feeling, progress everyday
3-stop eating at 6:00 pm no matter what. Now I know this isn't a goal for everyone, but for me it really helps to set a time limit. It helps me get my meals in early and on time (no eating breakfast at 11:00) and it also gives me time in the evening to focus on family and forget about food, or the lack of.
4. Get to bed at 9:30. This helps me feel refreshed at 5:30 am when I meet my running partner. :)
Re-focus, renew, revive. I am feeling great. I know this plan, if followed to the letter will work, I am ready for change.
Here is a picture of my babe and I at our church Halloween party, and don't worry I didn't eat one single candy! so proud. :)
