January 2nd, 2019 Nice Start

January 2nd, 2019 Nice Start

Yesterday: I maintained the integrity of my reduced calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.

I made the best out of my first day of the year. I feel wonderful about the start. I enjoyed my food plan, I got some exercise at the gym last night, I worked on the structure and schedule for the non-food/non-exercise elements of my daily practice (most important, IMO), visited with mom last night, and made it through the first two chapters of Russell Brand's book, Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions. It was a very nice start for the new year that's full of possibilities.

The location broadcast yesterday was a success. More than sixty customers were lined up, waiting for the doors to open by the time I arrived. I started setting up for the broadcast and as I did, one gentleman misunderstood my position relative to the line, quipping in a nasty tone, "Well, somebody thinks he's special; cutting to the front of the line." I smiled and said, "I'm not here for the sale, I'm here for the radio broadcast." It was tense for about twenty seconds. It's amazing what a smile with a calm and measured response can accomplish. The guy wanted to be my buddy after that.

I'm headed to the studio. It's back to work! I finished my morning foundational routine, my food is planned and packed, and I'm as ready as I can be for the return to work. I have many things worthy of my gratitude today.

  1. What are your non-food/non-exercise elements you are working on? How about my 'make non-negotiable starting you 24 hour cycle at 9:00 pm' ? Happy New Year, and thanks for publishing this.


  2. Sean it was such a pleasure to speak to you yesterday. I was so grateful (and frankly surprised) that you returned my call. I'm writing a blog today about our conversation and about my journey. It's been filled with joyful discovery -- especially how NOT to do things. ;) What you said, "Simplicity + Consistency > intensity" is very true and something it took my husband and me long painful years to learn. I'll post the link here once it's written. Thanks so much again. You're an incredible inspiration. ♥.

    1. Here's the blog.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
