Enjoyed almost oatmeal w/ banana for breakfast, should have had more protein! Because while I was okay up til lunch, which was pre-made paleo chk, veggies (1/2 portion) & steak potato fries (1/2 portion) about 4ish, I was starving, and party foul # 1 in this challenge-- I wasn't prepared. For the first time in a long time...I wasn't prepared-- no nuts, fruit or larabars...all I had was the almond butter with sugar in the fridge and banana chips, so point lost again! UGH...its so annoying to lose points for things like this (pizza and wine, I get it), but this....grrrr. I got lazy on the last week, crazy. I believe that is 8 points off? I need to go back and check-- 8 is a nice even number, hopefully I'll leave it at that (although I believe the challenge goes through Saturday if I am not mistaken, but since Hank and I started early we are celebrating Saturday night with friends!!) Dinner was a burger (no bun of course) with sauteed spinach, onions, garlic, salsa, guac and a cheese sauce (simmered coconut milk, took of the burner and put in parm & feta), dessert with dinner unsweetened applesauce with fruit and cinnamon.
Last night's dinner made with love by Hank--as you can see all meat, haha, it was delicious-- I loved loved loved the chicken-- I had some fruit with it as well.
Define “self-discipline.” Why, and how, is it important in our everyday lives?
“If I want to be great I have to win the victory over myself… self-discipline.” (Harry S. Truman)
“…make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control…” (2 Peter 1:5-6)
The definition of this challenge has been self-discipline, while I've done extremely well, I haven't been 100% for the full 6 weeks (If this was a 3 week challenge I would've rocked it). But- I tried my best, recognized where I could have had more self control and where I need more self control. I've grown and I've learned and I've had a ton more self discipline when it came to eating and fitness than I have ever had my whole life...I hope to continue to grow, learn and try my best in whatever my challenges are and see what happens in terms of self discipline in mind, body & spirit moving forward!
Monday down, rest of the week to go! :)
