I’m proud to say that I earned my #30daychip yesterday!  What a long and arduous month it was.  I stayed strong even in the face of terrible tragedy.  I’m very proud of myself for this accomplishment.  Now I know that I can do ANYTHING I set my mind to.

I can’t wait to see what the next 30 days bring.

I did it!!

A huge thank you to Brad for creating this #7daychip program!

Now on to my true goal, earning a #30daychip on March 30 by doing the following:

  • Stay on the Medifast 5-1 plan.  Eat 5 Medifast meal replacements and 1 Lean & Green meal.
  • No deviation.  No “special occasions.” No treats.  On plan, all the time, for 30 days.
  • Get activity in every day.  This may mean a walk with Lulu or an Afro Belly Boogie class, but I need to move every day.

So far so good, now it’s time to complete the next 21 days.

I’ve had a bit of an epiphany these last few days.  Part of it came from a conversation I had with LC about just buckling down and sticking with the Medifast.  Part of it came from a guest blog post that Brad Gansberg wrote on Tara’s blog.  And the final impetus I needed came from Jenna‘s comment on my blog post yesterday:

Before I lost weigh I used to feel the same way. I think what was happening to me was that I would make say, 60% good choices. Then I felt so darn good about myself for making SO many good choices that I would give myself all sorts of pats on the back, free passes, special occasions, etc. thinking that I deserved them. So those 40% free passes basically evened everything out, canceling out all my “good choices.” Same with working out–I’d feel so proud of myself for working out, I’d have a nice little snack when I came home from the gym…likely canceling out the work I just did. When I finally lost weight, it was because I went 30 full days with not ONE pat on the back. I was 100% for 4 weeks, didn’t weigh myself (so I wouldn’t get down if I didn’t lose a ton the first few weeks), and just resigned myself to the rules I had set for myself. My social life sorta sucked, but it was worth it to commit for 30 days with no exceptions. I think balance is important long term, but not when it’s time to buckle down and get the work done.

And so I have come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to earn a #30daychip.

So what will I do to earn my #30daychip?

  • Stay on the Medifast 5-1 plan.  Eat 5 Medifast meal replacements and 1 Lean & Green meal.
  • No deviation.  No “special occasions.” No treats.  On plan, all the time, for 30 days.
  • Get activity in every day.  This may mean a walk with Lulu or an Afro Belly Boogie class, but I need to move every day.

Feel free to keep me honest throughout the month of March.  I’ll see you 30 days from now with my results.
