NYBP Day 1 journal

I must say David's inspiration for today spoke to me deeply. He said, "Today I want you to get up and say, "This is the start of the new me. I can and will make the most of my life. I will set out to change the one thing over which I have the most control-myself."" I just had to make up in my mind to do what I need to do. I would be lying if I said it wasn't hard. Doubt and fear began to creep in. Can I really do this? What if I don't reach my goal? I prayed, I read my bible at work and I pressed on. I also went online and read about others who completed the program and the changes they experienced. One lady lost 14 pounds in the first 7 days and I wrote down that was my goal as well. I claimed it!!!

I followed my eating plan to the T. Although it was tempting after yoga to swing by a fast food place, I didn't. I went straight home, showered, had a shake, made dinner and I will be heading to bed soon. I just keep telling myself it's only 14 days. Watching tv is torture, all of those food commercials are killing me. But in my closet staring right at me, is my dress.

I also joined a biggest loser competition at work and that will be my motivation to continue. I have a team depending on me and I can't let them down. It's for 6 months so I know my workouts will be more reasonable. I plan on only doing 2 a days maybe 3 days a week. Anyway, I am looking forward to being down 2 pounds in the morning. I keep seeing myself as slim and healthy and I know I will be there. Tomorrow is the 15 minute upper body workout, additional cardio and Bikram yoga. I also have a peel scheduled in preparation for the wedding. Have a blessed evening. Q
