Well after spending the night laying in bed with a horrible headache and nausea due to the stress I've felt overloaded with this week. I stayed up watching video clips, reading old writings and looking through all those notes I have written from the hundreds of different diet plans they have thrown at us. I have came to a conclusion that the better the food the better I feel the better I look and the longer I will be here for my family so.... I've beaten the soda habit, now I am looking to beat my sugar cravings a healthy way. So I sat down today and made myself a countdown calendar. I have 120 days till my sons high school graduation and 122 till my 37th birthday. I have 120 slips of paper hanging on my wall I remove one everyday as a reminder what I am working for. I've chosen dates randomly to offer myself positive reinforcement. I also built a positive motivation board to hang on my fridge right next the board that has the calorie count of my favorite sweets and how long I'll have to workout to burn it off. My goal is to set myself up to win not fail. I am the only one who can do this and I am the only one who can fail at it.
