Over the last seven days we have been doing a detox from the Cardiac Unit. It’s a diet plan consisting of soup, fruit, veges and some meat.
Feel great today. Lost some weight and have a lot of energy but it was a struggle for the last few days.
I had decided to stick to the plan, no cheating, and following it to the letter.
For the last few days then it became a battle, not of food, but of wills. My brain / body wanting to eat things it couldn’t and me thinking no I will get through this. It’s only seven days of my life.
I won! I made the seven days without cheating.
And that was the best thing out of the whole exercise for me. I had the discipline to follow the plan, and it paid off, and it got me thinking.
We are too easy on ourselves. We give in to our wants a lot. “Oh another biscuit or piece of cheese won’t hurt. I can make that call tomorrow.”
Zig Ziglar said, “It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.”
Discipline is what enables us to follow through. Discipline is what gives you a really great sense of achievement. Discipline will get you what you want faster than anything else.
Try an experiment this week. Choose one thing you won’t / will do every day for seven days and stick to it. Le me know how you go and let others support you on our Facebook page.
Have a great week.
