When I started IP, I bought a huge wall calendar to mark off the days I complete on the diet. It’s both to track my progress as well as keep me motivated. It’s quite satisfying to look at the calendar and see all those Xs lined up. It’s also really satisfying to mark those Xs off every day.
I always mark after dinner and I just put a mark on today and stopped dead in my tracks. I counted out 30 day increments, and today is day 60! Holy Crap!
I’ve been doing this for two months! 60 days of no sugar, no carbs, and truly, only minimal struggle. I’m fully back on track with my appetite and my head is back in the game. So much so that I went all out for dinner tonight with a baked salmon recipe (thank you Pioneer Woman for the perfect baked salmon recipe!) and steamed fresh green beans. You can check out the photo on Instagram.
I’m reinvigorated, and ready to take the next 60 days head on! This weight loss/better health thing is a serious mental game. And I may have stumbled the past few weeks, but i’m back on track now, and I’m ready to kick some weight loss ass!
Looking forward to sharing some good news on my stats on Friday! Wish me luck!
Ciao for now,
