I've been scolded ...

My group went out for our Christmas lunch today.  We went to one of our regular spots ...The Hot House Cafe in T.O.  I normally had the jambalaya. I decided to have it today.  WHAT a mistake that was.

For those who don't know ... I have been wheat, flour, gluten and dairy free for three months. Not only have I dropped 20 pounds and 20 inches ... I've lost a LOT of inflammation from my back. And most importantly ... my health is WAY better. Pretty good results, right?  The only challenge is now when I do eat something I really shouldn't (like today's lunch) ... I suffer.

So here I am suffering ... and I decided to email Andrew and tell him. Well ... I got my wrist slapped.  This is the first time he's been tough on me.  It really upset me.  He went on to remind me of how many times I've slipped lately. I have a bad habit of pushing limits (just ask Barry).  So I thought about it ... realized I need to get back on track .. even if that means being very strict and not listening to anyone other than Andrew ... then that's what I'm a gonna do.

He hasn't led me astray yet. I put my total faith in him the first couple of months and made tremendous progress.  I've been self sabotaging the past few weeks.  I called it "pushing limits" or "testing the water".  But let's call a spade a spade. It was self sabotage.  And I knew it. Hence why I confess my sins to him.
So ... a little tough love from my coach ... and I'm back on track. No more pushing limits ... no more
self sabotage.  As of right now (not tomorrow) .... I am refocussed.

Moral of the story?  Even if you falter ... or self sabotage ... you can get back on track. Just refocus ... and do it immediately ... Don't "start again tomorrow ... next week .". Do it now.  Right now.  And don't look back. You can't change the past.  Only the future.

And if you need a little help .. a little direction ... a little encouragement... I'm here. Just drop me a line.

Yours in health ....
