Dear readers, trapped in the nuisance of dieting I’ve lost track of the days.
For starters, my husband got on the dieting train and he’s done much better than me.
I’ve mostly been haunted by PMS. I’m still wondering why in the heck am I still getting periods at my age. I will be more than happy when my period goes away forever.
Now getting back on track is going to take some willpower.
For me it’s all about the cheese. I love to eat cheese!
As I write this post some cheese and crackers are laughing at me. Teasing me, luring me into just taking a bite. They know I’m not suppose to snack on them. However, my grandma would always say, “El que rie ultimo, rie mejor” which means thee who laughs at the end, laughs with more joy.
So, if I were the cheese that’s in the refrigerator and the crackers in the pantry, I would be extremely quiet because I could use some carbohydrates right now.
Which leads us to the most important part of this all.
Tomorrow I’m at Day 1 all over again.
And this time I intend to go straight to Day 10 without hesitation. Why Day 10? Well, because those first ten days are crucial to staying on track. My husband already is feeling the benefits of dieting, his size 36 pants need a tighter belt for fitting.
Finally I just need to add one word to this, FOCUS.
It has to become my mantra for pulling this off. Each time temptation comes around the corner, I need to repeat FOCUS.
FOCUS on feeling better,
FOCUS on walking better,
FOCUS on living better, and so much more.
And don’t forget to do something that makes someone’s day better; make me company on my way to wellness; and, repeat my mantra FOCUS.
