10 Days In....


Left:Day 1 - Right:Day 10

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Shred is WORKING.

I have lost inches all over already
though not a pound of weight: this does not bother me in the least.

The mot striking change is in the middle of my body.

This morning I felt mopey and thought I'd whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies to feel better.

Instead I talked myself down off of the buttery, chocolatey ledge and I shredded
then treated myself to a wonderful green monster with

spinach
rice milk
banana
and
frozen mango
.

On Sunday I will bake, as it is my 'go nuts' day.

Today I learned that
there is nothing like photodocumentation to prove that you are making progress:

if you want to make a change I seriously recommend taking pictures as you go.

I am also learning to:

Find heros
Give yourself treats that aren't always food-related
Push through mental lethargy
Rest when the body truly calls for it
visualize
celebrate
.

xoxox,
A

Your chocolate chip cookie will power is stronger than mine. Perhaps I should just send you some so you don't have to bake them for yourself. ;)
