100 Day Challenge - Day 53 - What Would I Do if it Wasn't Impossible?

Sometimes it seems that my dream to have a strong, lean body without counting calories, monitoring my macros and exercising to exhaustion seems impossible for me. I am working on my beliefs and having faith in the fact that other people have achieved it but it is a bit of a mind f*ck.

The way to get through this is to keep asking "What would I do if it wasn't impossible?" Then I act "as if" if were easy, effortless and natural.

My daily actions include
  • letting go of obsessively logging all my food
  • letting go of limiting my calorie intake
  • eating unprocessed food in amounts that keep me satisfied
  • really thinking about what would satisfy me at that particular meal
  • appreciating my body as it is right now
  • stating my intention each day to reduce the importance of food in my thoughts
  • having patience with myself if I eat when I'm not hungry or for comfort
  • celebrating every positive decision I make
  • expecting that today is the day when my eating will be as unremarkable as the rest of my bodily functions
My thoughts and behaviour are changing slowly each day but that doesn't mean that won't come a time when the momentum starts to build and my progress accelerates. I am practicing and practicing and today could be the day when it finally clicks and I make a giant leap forward.

As long as I know what I want, and why I want it, the 'how' doesn't matter. Think of all the great things you have been given in your life without having to struggle and strive for them, those wonderful gifts that just fall into your lap. There is no reason why this can't be one of those delightful gifts the universe delivers to me. Freedom from dieting hell is on its way and I'm excited ♥
