Today was challenging to say the least. The crazy part is that last night(NYE) was totally easy! My husband and I stayed home and watched “Pitch Pefect” and ate protein snacks!! We did eat a little more meat then we should have but we did not have any carbs or sugar!!! YAY!
Today has been hard for a number of reasons. First of all we were up late last night so we probably didn’t get enough sleep which through us off. We got up at about 10am and made protein pancakes! (Recipe at http://www.facebook.com/idealproteinedmonton)
The pancakes were great and very satisfying but then we missed lunch. I took my vitamins and had a protein shake and figured that it wasn’t long until supper and I would be fine… Right?
Wrong!!! We were going to my mother in laws for dinner and it was a little later then I had expected. I was STARVING by the time we ate. Because I was starving I could not get satisfied. I did get full but full is very different from satisfied. So on the drive home the thoughts started…
“i can just have something little”. ” i have been doing so good
“Well maybe just some sugar free candy”
And the list goes on…
I made it all the way to the store to buy some sugar free candy but when I got there my mantra over road my thoughts and saved the day! My current mantra is:
Imagine your body 1 year from now when all your hard work has paid off and you have the body you have always wanted.
This may sound silly but that Mantra has saved my butt a few times over the last few days, I have gone as far as to put something in my mouth and spit it out but I have not swallowed anything that I shouldn’t!! Yay me!
But now to address the real problem…
I am addicted to sugar! Now that I am beginning to recognize that I am addicted to sugar I believe that it will make it much easier to walk away from it. I do not want food to have a hold on my life anymore! I am going to beat this once and for all! My mantra is going to help me along as well as my program that is set for me and the support of my husband and family. I encourage you to find a mantra that works great for you. I great mantra will stop you dead in your tracks in any situation and will give you the power to move on! You mantra should make you feel confident and strong I have been looking for my perfect mantra forever but I think I have finally found one that fits!! What is your mantra? Let me know in your comments! I would love to hear them!
