"Only you can stop you."
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
I am not happy with myself. It is December 2010. I have been trying to lose 85 for the past two years. I can give you every excuse in the book why I haven't done it, but they are just excuses. I'm tired of excuses. I'm implementing a "no whining, no excuses" rule for myself.
I was just on the "Fork Over Knives" website. ( www.forkoverknives.com
) "Fork Over Knives" is a documentary that is going to be coming out in March 2011 that follows real people who have reversed heart disease, high cholesterol and diabetes by following a healthy vegan diet. Okay, I get it. I have been vegan for about four years now. But I allow myself to go on "junk vegan food" binges. Fritos Corn Chips/Sun Chips/Potato Chips and/or Wafer Sugar Cookies/Orange Slices, etc along with Diet Dr. Pepper may be vegan. But they are not a healthy way to start the day. And I was using these foods...for fuel? Are you kidding me? Just like a you can't put 88 octane in a Lamborghini and expect high performance, you can't put junk "food" in your machine, this wonderful human body that is just AMAZING, and expect high performance.
So, that being said, I have reined back in my food. I gave up the pop (again!). My breakfast this morning consists of a banana and three clementines. I'm planning on a salad for lunch. I'm planning on the gym after work. (Should have gone before, but after is better than nothing.) And I'm planning on staying on track. Because the only one standing in my way is me.
