Return of the Funky Monk
Total loss: -66.0
Emotion: Full of faith
I’ll admit it: I was a trifle exasperated at my lack of success on the weigh-in front. I seem to have undone a lot of hard work over the last few months, so I finally decided to go a little medieval on my diet-and-exercise plan.
I perused my archives, trying to tap into a little bit of the spark and spirit that powered loss after loss after loss.
What did I discover? That I do my best when I throw myself into the deep end… when I commit fully and unreservedly. Yes,
So this week, I channeled my inner weight-loss warrior.
Not a slurp of soda.
Not a sip of coffee.
Not a swig of beer.
Not a drop of wine.
Eating (mostly) on plan.
Exercising like a bat out of Hell.
And a five-pound loss.
I don’t plan on living my entire life like a monk…
But I figure it doesn’t hurt to dine at the monastery for a while.
