Chris’s 30 Day Reboot Day 25
Chris’s 30 Day Reboot Day 25. Ha! There it is again, the reduction in alcohol. I’m telling you, it works. One of the biggest things you can do for yourself when transitioning to a more nutritious diet is change your mindset. Yogi Berra had it right when he said, “90% of the game is half mental.” If you go into anything with a mindset of deprivation or things being “off limits” and telling yourself “you can’t” or “aren’t allowed” half your brain has already lost. So, instead of saying “I can’t have that pizza, wine, beer, donut or whatever,” empower yourself and say in your head instead “I don’t put that kind of crap in my body.” This makes it your choice and gives you a bit of an edge because you are rising above those choices. Now go eat some awesome food instead 🙂
30 Day Diet Reboot Day 25
January 25, 2018, 178.2 pounds
You know you’re on track when eating unhealthy food seems abnormal and out of place.
I was at an event last night. First, I was drinking water instead of the free beer and wine. Second, I avoided all the cakes and sweets nad sought out the relatively healthy stuff, like tabbouleh and hummus. Third, when I got home I did nto eat the pizza my kids had made, and frankly didn’t want to.
My point is, none of this was hard or felt like sacrifice or missing out. It was all what I WANTED to do. That’s what a successful diet reboot does. It changes habits.
And this morning I was able to get out of bed at 5:00AM and get to the gym and get into my office to prep for my 9:00 presentation without any suffering or lack of energy. This is the holy grail of a diet reboot. Not the pounds. The lifestyle. You find more life in your life, if that makes sense.
I felt great looking in the mirror this morning in the gym. I still have that little belly, but the love handles are gone and I can see the muscles working.
This is the mental trick of a 30-Day project. At 14 days you are counting down to day 30 so you can open up a beer and gobble a pizza. But, by the end you want to keep going. You want to sustain that beachhead and see what goodness is around the next corner.
That’s how mountains are climbed. That’s how marathons are run.
