Do you friggin’ believe it?
I have now gone for 51 days sans chocolate, cheese flavoured rice cakes or corn chips. From several packets (of each) in a day to none. Nada. Zip.
Again, it hasn’t translated to any weight loss, but it’s comforting to know that I can set goals and bloody well stick to them.
I’m not hugely into photographs or very visual (which is why I still don’t really ‘get’ Pinterest) so I’ve struggled a bit, BUT I’ve done it. I’ve read of many others who’ve tried and failed, but I posted my photographs every day for 51 bloody days.
Again, I haven’t created any masterpieces and I don’t feel particularly inspired, but I. DID. IT. And that’s all that’s important.
Are small goals really worth the screens they appear on?
Over the past six months my ability to ‘do’ or ‘do without’ has been almost nil. I was starting to think I was incapable of setting a goal and following through.
After a great 3-4 month effort between May and August last year and a 25kg (55lb) weight loss, I’d floundered. My weight was yo-yoing about (though only by a few kilograms) and I was becoming increasingly frustrated at my inability to get back on track or stick with a commitment.
So, it’s with great relief that I can report in on my success on these counts:
No binge foods. Photo-a-day every day.
World peace and a book deal next.
Joking. Of course! Ish.
