Diabesity Challenge Day #26 – Maximum Effort

Yesterday was a good day as I started it walking at a slightly challenging pace and eating well all through out the day. Then came dinner with it’s fine selection of store prepared, sugar laced chicken wings which were absolutely delicious filled by a large piece of strawberry short cake. I am certainly not happy with the results of this action, but I will have to store it into my memory banks as one of those things not to do and move on.

I am starting to feel some relief with strength training every other day rather than every day and it is showing up in increased efforts on the bowflex. Just because I changed my schedule to reduce inflammation I don’t believe this gives me the excuse to not exert the maximum amount of effort to each routine. The muscle burn I feel while doing these routines is intense and provides for a certain level of pleasure that can only be described as satisfaction.

I will straighten out these few problems I face with diet and get back to the point where sugars and excess, non healthy carbs are a thing of the past. I will delight in making fresh vegetables the major component of this lifestyle I choose to live and will start shedding the fat that remains intact in and around the muscles of this body of mine. I will look into the mirror and see the body I am working so hard to attain and will let nothing stand in my way as I pursue this journey of good health.

    don’t you hate it when the entire day has been good from start to finish and then there is temptation sitting in front of you…you know the right thing to do but that beast, rebel, or whatever the f?!k you want to call it comes up and takes over the intelligent center in your brain!!! its like WTF!!!! All you can do it accept, acknowledge and do better….your doing awesome!!!!! I know that sounded a little patronizing but I really do feel your doing great…your up, moving, exercising, motivated, and thinking!!! that’s the biggest part of it all…starting the day off with exercise and movement…you are my inspiration…kat

    • Yes, this first 30 days is tough, but you are right. Sometimes I feel like one bad thing has ruined all other efforts that I made throughout the day, but that simply is not so. It’s that darn voice you are talking about that sometimes likes to take center stage and take over the controls. LOL.

        And it has a mind of its own….Dam them!!! LOL I am learning to scream back more loud!!!!

      • All I can say is that it least mine isn’t leading me to do things that could cause harm. I think a lot of folks who do stupid things allow that voice to lead them into trouble. Most of the time for me that voice is pretty darn compassionate.

        ME too….unless its late at night and she wants a full tummy to sleep on….LOL otherwise my inner voice is pretty good to me….LOL
