My first day of return to IF was less than successful.
I’ve done IF before as I said (in fact iirc, that’s how I found Steve’s site, came for the IF, stayed cause I’m a fan of the novels, stayed longer because the conversation was interesting). The last form was the JUDDD method with limited calories allowed on down days. Worked well until we realized something else was wrong with me. Now that’s under control…back to IF.
The first day the voices were murmurs. I ended up eating an avocado salad (avo and lemon) and my protein shake. It was also time to set up another batch of mead (black berry and lemon ginger in three months!)….I did not partake of the ingredients. Unless you count my sophisticated aeration process, which failed when my thumb slipped and I splashed my front side with must. So my body was exposed to undue amounts of sugar, just not internally.
So after the voices laughed me into the shower…I was pretty okay. Go some lower body done last night. Feel pretty good today. I drink water and tea most days without fail. Lunch is salad with artichokes, lemon and pork, raspberries, and blueberries (we have the best farmer’s market ever…cheapest produce ever…if you live in Colorado look for Sunflower Market). Dinner is unknown…the SO is in charge of dinner on Fridays. Could be anything.
Tomorrow I’m preparing better. Teapots are clean. I do have party to be at, but no one will expect me to eat or drink there (bowling alleys are good for this).
I’ve spent some time on goal visualization today. It’s interesting and important. Keep it up say the voices.
What would you attempt in life if you knew you could not fail?
I would just go. Travel. Failure is having some thing stop me (money, etc). If nothing can stop me there are no limits. I once played a game where my only instruction was “You can do anything.” So when the gm asked me what I wanted to do, I told him I set my enemies on fire and fly up to a safe vantage point. He said, “how can you do that.” I said, “Does it matter? I can do anything!”.
Power is truly limitless.
So I think of what is stopping me from my goals: Weightloss…my own body, but I am fighting it. Writing…nothing but time. Relationships…nothing but time. I am excited. Because I can do this.
