Friday was a heck of a day. I did it to myself.
First, I got to see the amount of money I put on a CC for living expenses in a year. The amount was nauseating. I haven’t quite decided what to do about that part, but it will be about becoming more intentional about when I spend and updating some habits that I have. I’ve been reading the 30 day money cleanse. Hopefully that will give me some ideas.
Second, I got to see my current weight. Now this was not the weight I tend to take. i.e. Naked and right when I get up. So I tell myself that the clothing I was wearing must be at least 50 pounds. Not. Sigh. Yes, it is just a number, but I have a number that when I am more than that number I feel bad.
I decided that my new mantra is: This is my body and I want to treat it lovingly. That phrase resonated with me.
Now I need to decide what that means practically. How do I accomplish this? I know I’m not at this guy’s level, but maybe I can get closer to that ideal. Maybe this is a more Whole 30 approach to my eating.
What do you do when life hits you with numbers where it hurts?

I’m not at that guys level either. Who is? I have a goal to lose 20 pounds before my birthday this month. I started off right but I lost my way. It makes me feel better when I look at the recorded weight on my app…the measurement when I was on track. Reality doesn’t matter as long as I can see that GOOD number.
I think I have to have a habit reboot. To yiur point about getting off track. So it is easier to get to where I want to go. The other thing, my mental image of myself has not kept up. So that number was like looking in the mirror and maybe seeing closer to reality.
