I have always been the person who wants to see instant results, needs instant gratification, needs to see things NOW.
With previous dieting experiences I would see results within weeks, and was motivated to keep going because of it.
Having a food “cheat” day, and going waaaay overboard with sugary foods because I loved the instant rush.
Getting frustrated with a build up for an exercise because I want to be able to just lift the target weight.
Submitting projects and feverishly monitoring my transcript for the final result.
These are just a few. Now, I am not suggesting that I am doing a complete shift from this, but I am noticing that my mindset is changing a bit.
I have now been doing the same circuit training and following the same diet plan for close to 6 weeks. I have not seen a great deal of change physically, but am patiently waiting. I trust that it will come (completely out of character)! I am experiencing a change mentally. I am not so focused on the physical, but am working on my mind and maintaining a positive outlook in this process.
This journey to recovery is touching all parts of my life. I am a happier person (people who know me would wonder if that is even possible!), loving life, and spending more time with my family. I am learning to be patient. After all – good things come to those who wait!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,
