I very quickly become impatient with myself.
"I walked 2 miles two days in a row! Why am I not thin yet?!"
That's why I give up. Impatience. I'm going to try to be more patient with myself and the process this time. I've done it before. I kept telling myself, "You can't fail if you don't give up."
The first small change I'm making is daily juicing. I always thought juicing was too radical, something for health kooks, but after watching Hungry for Change, (available on Netflix right now) I became inspired to add one glass of green juice a day to my diet.
|Typical daily green juice: spinach, kale, cabbage, pineapple, lemon, ginger|
So far I'm not noticing any benefits. But then, it's only day four. Silly me, I was actually tempted to declare the practice useless. I'll stick with it, though.
I wish it worked like magic, though. I wish I suddenly felt energetic and no longer craved pizza and burritos. Oh, well. I'm not giving up.
