5% Winter Challenge Afterthoughts
Saturday, March 07, 2020
The 5% Winter Challenge was a bust for me. I have to figure it out. I have managed to stop destructive behavior in the past, I am smoke free for over 10 years, I quit eating potato chips about 5 or 6 years ago, and I am nearing 2 years without a soda. I CAN do difficult things, I have the WHY, but I am failing to execute.
Looking back at those successes, the only thing I can remember doing right was dealing with it one day at a time. Each day built onto the previous and before I knew it, time had past. I was not aiming for a result, I was just acting each day. None of these things really helped with my weight, hell I added 40-50 lbs since I quit smoking. Hopefully they added a few good years to my life.
I am on day 14 of a 66 day challenge of not eating after 7:30 pm. I have not noticed any improvement even though I know it is there. I have to believe that if I were eating extra food in the evening, I would be adding weight.
I know what to do, I know how to do it, I have the why to do it, I just need to execute and win each day.
Wish me luck
