Who Knew?

5 Feb

me in a few months 🙂

So this week I finally felt like i’m making good progress in my scanning ability. In analyzing why I feel that I am improving though I realized something else far more profound.
Well I guess I should back up and say…this week I sucked it up and started waking up at 4:30 (in the morning I know absolutely crazy!) to exercise. And I strictly watched what I ate. No Doubletree cookies for 4 days 🙂 Waaaaahhh… And the weirdest thing happened to me…I felt better! I felt more positive, more alert, and just like i could do anything! Who knew that I could feel superhuman strength from doing those 2 simple (well not really that simple) things? So on the 5th day I treated myself to a Doubletree cookie. And this morning the weirdest thing happened again, I felt less motivated, a bit down, and overwhelmed by life again! I haven’t been eating sugar so I was able to pinpoint it to the Double tree cookie. I find this to be a phenomenal discovery! The discovery that sugar (who I thought was one of my best friends) has a direct correlation to me feeling more anxious, tired, and just an overall sense of yuckieness. How could sugar do me so dirty??? I mean I’ve heard these things before, but I felt it resonate differently actually nailing it down to that blasted cookie!

So that being said, I can’t afford to be more neurotic than i have been, it’s making me, and those around me nuts! Plus I think this is the only way I can get through these tests without completely losing my mind in the process! So I think i’m going to keep this up. It’s proving to be a good thing!
