Happy Sunday! I am so grateful to be 75 days free of the sweets and sugar. I feel really good, and tend to forget why. The no sugar thing has ingrained its way into my daily life. It’s a habit to say no now. I still think about consuming sugary sweets, however, the word no comes out automatically now. I have to tell you the thought of forever still haunts me.
I am still not sure about forever, I do know this, the lessons I have learned over the past 75 days will last me forever. Here are a few:
I AM WORTHY!
No matter what happens, I know, like I know, that I am worthy of the treatment that I am giving myself. The main reason I kept consuming sugar was because of a deep seeded belief that I was not worthy to have good health and lead a healthy lifestyle. This was something that I started working on a couple of years ago. I had sabotaged my workouts with sugar and crap food using excuses like “the only reason I work out is so that I can eat this stuff”. Sabotage was an incredible controller of my life. Up until recently and still some now.
I can actually focus on tasks at hand, which has changed the face of my business. It’s changed my workouts. Its changed the stress level in my life. I met with someone the other day that I haven’t seen in a while. She told me, you’re so calm. I am calm and collected in my decisions as well as my day to day activities. It truly is amazing how much can get accomplished if I can focus on one task at a time.
SACRED SELF CARE
I have learned the importance of taking appropriate breaks and time off of work in order to accomplish this practice of sacred self care. Guess what? I don’t feel guilty doing it either!
I have been tracking my food intake, exercise, and personal development activities. It allows me to see patterns that I may not have been aware of before. In turn, this allows me to develop a new habit of practicing moderation. Its taken 75 days of tracking to get here and I plan on continuing the tracking in order to inplant the habit even deeper. It has to be just as deep as the habit to overconsume food, over do exercise and blow off personal development.
These are a few lessons I have learned along the way. Tomorrow will be Kayla’s next article. I really enjoyed her last one.
