Today is day 5 and the final day of the No Bread, No Sugar Challenge. I am so happy that I have made it this far. First, let me tell you something about my recent past.
Last Friday, I was working on my Blog and everything became super complicated. I threw in the towel and just accepted that I was a loser that never finished anything that I started. I was just going to accept being a bum and live with that choice. I woke up Saturday morning, and still felt defeated. I started watching 'In the House', and I began to laugh so hard. People that really know me know that once I start laughing, it's really hard for me to stop. My sides and head could start hurting and by that time I usually can't breathe, but I don't stop laughing. My laughter turned into tears, and the tear progressed into a sob. At that moment, I knew that me giving up would be the most selfish thing that I had ever done. That is just unacceptable, because I am not at all selfish by nature.
I then got on Facebook, the most beautiful words were in the comments of my "Giving up" status. A lot of people really care about my well being, and they love that I try things even if I don't succeed at them. They don't want me to give up and to continue to be positive. I wanted to cry so bad, but I had already cried so much that my tear ducts were like, "Nope!" LOL. Melted my little empathetic heart.
I stopped my madness and decided to take control of my situation rather than allowing it to control me. I am more than a conqueror, and that God, my family, and my friends have my back!
Thanks to my friend Courtney aka LuluChris58's boyfriend Freddy aka Repp Junkie, I accepted the 5 day No Bread, No Sugar Challenge that he proposed on his page. I am so happy that I accepted that challenge, because no matter how many times temptation was staring me in the face, I didn't give up. It's Day 5, and I'm still going strong. I have more willpower/self-control than I thought.
And because of it, I have lost almost 4 pounds this week. Woop woop!! This shameless thing isn't so bad. I have more accountability this way.
|I'm doing my piggies today, don't worry.|
My heart goes out to all who are striving to reach their dreams and goals. Sometimes we feel like giving up, but honey it ain't worth it! Your dreams are worth it, so don't allow anyone (including you) or anything else stop you from living it.
Stay Healthy. Stay Hopeful. Stay true to what you love!
