Day 9 – Wednesday
I don’t know about you, but when I start seeing a difference in the way my body looks and the way my clothes fit, that is when the motivation really kicks in! As unhealthy as it is, I have always considered myself an ‘instant gratification’ kind of girl. I
will give up on most anything pretty quickly, if I don’t see some results. I am seeing results!
The other day, I was watching Tony Robbins on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and he couldn’t have said it any better…your mind has to be aligned with what you want. He also talks about the fear of failure and how you can fail at your diet before you even get started if you walk into day 1 with the mindset that you ‘can’t do it.’ Once again, I am going to reinforce the power of positive thinking and how incredibly important it is to BELIEVE in yourself and remind yourself as much as you need to, that YOU CAN DO IT!
I am still struggling with feeling ‘hungry’ and I am sure it is partly in my head because I don’t have the very full, bloated stomache feeling after I eat. It’s a different kind of ‘full’ feeling. But I would also have to say that I’m not eating enough throughout the day.
When I saw Dr. Ryan at the gym yesterday, he said that he can’t condone my paleo challenge unless I eat more, including protein at least 3 times per day.
The bottom line is clear. I must take the time to prepare healthy meals and snack choices BEFORE I go too long without
eating and in-turn, lack the energy to cook.
Food for the day
Breakfast: mixed fruit cup
Lunch: none for me but I would suggest a salad for you!
Dinner: chicken stir fry (cut up chicken breast with bag of frozen mixed veggies, cooked in coconut oil and vinegar)
Here is a great snack idea that you can take with you anywhere!
Mix in an airtight container - roasted almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried slices bananas, dried cranberries, raisins, dried apricots
