Day 11 - Tired but Determined
I ended yesterday by going to the gym for a cardio workout. Ended up doing about 500 calories on the cross trainer and now feeling very tired. Breakfast today was an avocado and apple smoothie, lunch was a tuna, avocado and tomato stir fry and of course I'm feeling hungry and a little tired. This is the type of feeling that I've been preparing for. Not only i'm I hungry but because I'm only 11 days into the challenge it's too early to notice any significant changes yet and this is the kind of time that many people will give up on their challenge and binge on whatever their cravings are. With hypnosis though my hunger is perceived to be a signal that my body is feeding on body fat as I'm running at a calorie deficit, therefore right now I'm succeeding. Also, for my stomach to shrink it needs to get used to smaller quantities of food. It's this hunger than means I will feel less hungry in the future. What does this mean? To develop a sense of control you need temptation. To feel determined you need to feel that progress is slow. To reduce my bodyfat I need to change my bodyfat. The overall message is stay the course. I have more temptations to come this weekend but I'll be reinforcing my NLP techniques so that I can see the food or drink and not feel a compulsion to eat it. And when I get through this weekend and Monday which is my birthday then my next biggest challenge will be an upcoming holiday to Italy and Italian food is my Achilles heel.
