Here I go again.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

So I have wrote before saying that I have struggled this year but it wasn't until yesterday that I realised how much I had given up on myself. I just did not believe in my ability to reach my goal anymore and worse I didn't really care if I got there or not.
Then yesterday morning my Brother gifted me a book on Audible it was something I never would have picked for myself but I thought I'd give it go and it turned out to be exactly what I needed to hear it's called Can't hurt me by David Goggins and it is truly inspirational particularly the chapter on his weight loss.

So today I start again here's my plan:

Keep listening to motivational books
15 minutes exercise bike (just completed this it hurt but I feel better for it)
Breakfast will be a banana and a protein shake
Dinner will be soup or a sandwich
Tea will be different each day but will be balanced
No night time snacking, I plan to sketch at night to help with this.
Also I will cut down on my alcohol intake which has been too high this year
I will blog more to keep me focused.

I'd like to say a quick sorry to my 5% challenge team mates I have done quite well posting my fitness minutes and things but my weight has stayed firmly where it was at the start of the challenge (probably a little higher if I'm honest with myself, also part of my new plan) I will change that I might not manage my full 5% but I will not end this challenge with a gain.

    There's so much more to this challenge than losing 5% of our weight. That's a focus because it's measurable, but we can benefit just by connecting with others who have similar struggles. Isn't it great that a recharge can come unexpectedly, like your brother's gift to you? For all of us who've hung on through the pandemic, trying to exercise, and focusing on good nutrition are successes. emoticon

    It is a rough year more ways than one. No need to apologize. Everyone understands. You got this. Thanks to your brother for finding the right book. You have a great plan outlined.
