90-Day Challenge: Days 81-77: Chickening Out


Okay, the last week was a blur.  So much so that I nearly abandoned my challenge.  After hanging out and eating (not horribly) with friends, I went on a binge.  I ate so much crap that I actually shocked myself.  There was pizza, ice cream, sodas, fried seafood, etc.  The point is, at the end of it all, I felt like an addict having hit rock-bottom.

So, I feel the time is near — the time where the line in the sand gets drawn.

When you get the be a man in his 40’s, your eating habits can become an issue of life and death.  So, you either make a decision or it gets made for you, eventually.  I prefer the former over the latter.

So, it’s time focus, again.  I skipped by daily trip down to the cafeteria.  I brought breakfast AND lunch, instead.  I skipped the sodas and had water. I took my vitamins and had fruit for a snack.  Yes, it’s only one day but, habits start somewhere.

The challenge is still on and, today, I am feeling better about it than I have in a week.  Now, I just need the action and the will to match my desire to be healthier.  When the mind and the body finally meet up, I’ll really be on my way!
