July 4th 2013, the beginning of the end.
A bit dramatic I know, but it really was the beginning of the end. I ordered DDP Yoga the Friday prior and was awaiting its arrival. In the mean time we had a decision to make. Start our clean living before we started the program or get it all out of our systems, live it up for America’s birthday and go out with a bang!
We chose the latter.
Nutritionists would probably cringe at the idea but I read somewhere that most addicts get extremely high before entering rehab so I applied that principle to our lifestyle change. We used the holiday weekend as a final farewell to our glutinous ways. It was truly the beginning of the end of our former life, both physically and mentally. We ate and drank to our hearts desires, until we woke up Monday morning. The workout kit had arrived and we hit it hard!
In a way I think that going over the top before we started the diet made us realize how poorly we were eating. The energy change we have experienced just 5 days into the program is astounding. Fresh fruits, veggies, some good protein and crazy amounts of water have given us new life! To say we are refreshed in mind, body and spirit is an understatement.
If you are about to change your lifestyle let me suggest that just one more time you eat, drink and be merry. For tomorrow we DIET!
