I have got to step it up! I just came back from a week long business trip where I definitely indulged more in the social beverages than I usually do when I'm at home. Those calories seriously add up. On the plus side, I did workout as usual so at least I came out even in the end. However, with only 7 weeks left I am starting to sweat it a bit.
I'm starting to think that my "stick" wasn't big enough. The idea of eating a Chick-Fil-A meal if I don't lose 10 lbs. by May 1 (as disgusting as that still sounds to me) obviously isn't something that motivates me as much as I thought it would. The other thing is that my "carrot" (reward) of a new guitar isn't a big motivator either. Although I've been wanting to replace my guitar, it's not something I think about on a daily basis.
Time to call a new play
I think I need something to jolt my system so I'm thinking of trying a detox. Dr. Oz seems to have a decent one. Please send me a message or comment on my Facebook page with any good ones.
When I first began this challenge a couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend printed and posted pictures of Chick-fil-a meals around the house. In principle, a good idea. After a couple of days, however, they became a part of the landscape and I became immune to them. I need to devise a better way to keep this challenge at the forefront of my mind.
So, in the words of Woody Harrelson's character Tallahassee in Zombieland, "It's time to nut up or shut up."
Wish me luck!
