Checking In: This Feels Oddly Familiar…

It has been one week since I started this blog in attempt to turn this life around. So far so good, I suppose…? To be totally honest, this past week was more or less simple and boring, as well as very deja vu. You see, this isn’t my first rodeo with a fitness kick, and they always tend to go the same way.

Since I am generally a healthy person (I value getting in my workouts and eating a vegetarian diet), I always start at about a +1 or so from average. Not to mention that I am a tall human, making it easy to gain a few without being able to tell, thus making it even easier for me to make excuses toward laziness and pizza.

And so, making a change like this week-long clean eating challenge doesn’t feel terribly different. I don’t feel less tired, I don’t look or feel less bloated, and my skin doesn’t look any less pimply. Yet. The familiar part of this past week is the impending relapse I sense. My bloat and zits haven’t gone, but I have to remember that these issues haven’t had a chance to change.

FACT that I just Googled: It takes about 30 days for skin cells to regenerate.

This week I am going to do the 7 Day Clean Eating Challenge again. And then I’ll do it again, and again. And then I’ll do the Whole Life Challenge, which is 8 weeks. Then back to weekly. One week of change really won’t do anything for me, but many all strung together as a full lifestyle overhaul, THAT is when I’ll start seeing my efforts. And THAT is what I’m telling myself this morning as I crave pancakes and reflect on the change I’m not seeing. 

Meh.

Meh. This is me waiting for my six pack to arrive. 

Keep kickin’ ass, party people!
