Starting Again

Today was the day, as I'm sure it was for many of you out there. I'm not going to lie. It was hard.

I know how to do this. I know exactly what to do. But unfortunately that doesn't make it any easier. Especially when I've been inhaling sugar for four weeks.

This morning I dragged my ass out of bed, did a 5K on the treadmill and some stretching. At least I can still run. Well, what I call running at least. My time was 37:54. I hope to get that down to 31 minutes before summer. We'll see.

Breakfast was an apple and a protein bar. Lunch was a turkey sandwich on wheat and a spinach salad. Snack was yogurt and an orange. And dinner was chicken, roasted peppers and a half of a sweet potato. Lots of colors, lots of nutrients and lots of prep time. Everything I ate tasted good. It tasted virtuous. Yet I still had the sugar cravings. I still wanted a t00tsie roll after lunch. Or twenty. I resisted though and hopefully today will be the hardest day. Getting going is always the hardest right?

I'm not going to talk about what the scale said this morning because I refuse to believe that I've done this to myself. I'll update my weight on the sidebar once I'm a little more comfortable with my progress. And I'll probably do some woo hoo carrots posting for a while just to help keep myself accountable.

I was feeling guilty about doing this new year's resolution thing or whatever it is, but you know what, I can do this. And even if a million other people are saying the same thing, that doesn't make it any different for me. It's going to be hard and it's going to take work but I feel good about this year. This year is going to be my year!

Oh yeah did I mention how proud I am of everyone that kicked arse throughout the holidays? You guys rock. And for you guys who had a rough time like I did - let's get back to it. We can do this. It takes some love and some dedication and we're going to need support, but that's why we have fatblogland. Good luck guys!

Good luck to you as well :)
I think I am going through sugar withdrawal, but we can do it.

Yep -- I recently read that if you do something for four days, it only gets easier. Keep at it!
