A pledge to myself
CD1, let's restart that countdown.....
Why do I want to do Keto? The importance of changing one mindset is so underrated. When I study for an exam I prepare myself mentally and psychologically. I research about it, I take practice tests, i grade myself, learn about my weaknesses and focus on them. I also review my strengths and make sure that I have them down. I get myself physically ready. I make time to rest , eat well, hydrate few days prior to testing day. I pray i meditate , I set my intentions and deliver them to the world. I do not doubt myself one minute. And I have support from my family. Why have not I been taking the same approach for this Keto thing? The 1st time I tried it I got it. In 4 months I was down 20 pounds. I felt the best that I have ever been. My hormones were stable and I was so proud of myself. Than life got in the way and I let go. I have been cheating trying failing restarting. I am warrior. I do not let go easily. But all this back and forth is getting tiring. But today I had this Epiphany. I have been listening to keto podcast and I have to say they help especially with the mindset. I have already done my research. I have books. I know how I feel when I start loosing. I want to loose. The only thing that was missing was to remind myself of why I want to do this:yes i want to loose weight. But that is not the main goal. Ultimately I am doing it for my family but especially for my child. I want to be healthy and live as long as possible to be there for him as he grows and he becomes a man. I want to give him all the support that he needs to become a good strong and independent man. So now that I have my ultimate goal. Do i still want to mess around? What is really keeping me from succeeding is myself. I need to make a pledge once and for all. I need to make a vow to myself like I made a vow to God to be the best mother that I can be and the best person that I can be, the vows to my husband to love and cherish him , be faithful, his friend and confident, in sickness and in health, in riches or poor until death do us part, I have to make a vow to myself to get healthy via Keto and by all means get healthy so that I can be there for my loves ones for my son and support him through life. That is what was keeping me from being successful. So no more cheating. No more excuses. No more tomorrow. It starts today. It starts now. Cheers to a healthy life. And off we go and never look back.
