So, last night I hit the same wall I hit the first time I attempted the juice fast. The wall that has my stomach growling like a whole team of grizzly bears and my body barely strong enough to stand upright. So, yea, as you can imagine, my mind was screaming at me that this just isn’t realistic for a stay-at-home mom of 2 young girls who wants to be active. Even as a temporary thing, I knew I couldn’t do it. I shouldn’t do it.
So, I am going back to eating a basic balanced diet and trying to be as active as possible. I am going to have to grow some balls and stick with it. I think my husband has a better idea of just how much I was struggling and now knows that it would be SUPER helpful to me if he would push me when I feel like I can’t go on.
I think I need to get rid of the scale, at least for the first few months, so I don’t obsess with my weight, but instead concentrate on how I feel. Instead I am going to take pictures and take measurements to keep a more accurate record of the physical changes.
I just have to keep going. I have to get past all the bumps in the road. Keep going until all the things that start out as challenges simply become habit.
