    Painting Done. Laying floor next week.

    BIW mod 3 Lesson 2

    Build in sensible practice. Practice in small chunks. *Don't try out your moves at a major party the first time, maybe start with a lunch out.

    Act out the moves or steps of your plan. *Practice saying "No Thank You"

    Practice under similar circumstances. * Buy a treat, but delay having the treat for a certain amount of time.

    this works but takes practice, I have learned.

    For me it is the first bite. If I can hold that off, I am good. But once I have one, it seems to open a floodgate. So, unless it is absolutely essential (ie. it is a sit down dinner), I just plan not to eat at a party.

    I'm the Queen of "no thank you" when in a public setting. Not so much so when its just me and the offending temptation! That's why I try to keep my house void of things Tomi shouldn't eat! I guess its all an exercise in self-control and determination.

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    BIW Mod 3 Lesson 3 Specific Focus

    -Prepare for the unexpected. Willpower is a systematic approach to difficult situations. Have a contingency plan.

    -Create a SMaC list (Specific, Methodical and Constant) More specific than the Manifesto. A list that guides behavior in good times and bad. *Much like the eating plan with rumble strips that I came up with last week.

    -Small stuff matters. Prepare for the little stuff and you don't have to deal with the big stuff.

    *I had a small bonfire this morning. I took all of that sorted paperwork from last week out to our burn pile and lit it up. I had to keep stirring the pile to make sure everything was destroyed. It felt very cathartic.

    *I am still having a hard time with the food. Even with all the tricks I am learning about will power, something is missing. It dawned on me today that in order to use these great systems I am learning in BIW, one has to actually want to succeed and believe that they can do it. My mind is not cooperating with me on this. If I cannot change the largely subliminal negative self talk, I will not ever succeed in conquering the health issue.

    I realized today that
    1) After 40 years of struggle with food, I believe my situation is largely hopeless.
    2) Somewhere in my psyche is the belief that I do not deserve to succeed in this area.

    I have a simple new mantra. "I can be healthy. I deserve to be healthy."
