Day 80 is quite something don’t you think, 80 days of straight flat-out effort, that is some achievement even if you haven’t been able to do your best this time. As i keep telling you, its really impossible to be perfect all the time, it is important though not to knock yourself too much when you do blow it for the day or the week, getting back on the programme is all that matters at that particular stage.
So the big question is, are you going to keep on doing this thing after day 84? Hopefully you are and you will keep on doing it in such numbers. Around 120-150 unique visitors from around 15 different countries view this site according to the latest data, so i have every incentive to keep on writing and trying to help everyone out.
One of the most important changes i have heard from people taking this challenge is their taste buds changing. Those of you who used to eat a lot of packaged food, and have tried around 5000 diets, have noticed since you don’t eat the processed food so much any more, so much processed sugar, so much salt in your food and in the cooking process even, you are now noticing the TRUE disgusting sickly taste of processed food that ultimately wrecks your body for long term success.
Salt, sugar and saturated fat are the evil triplets of what we are really trying to achieve, and these triplets are happy to send us into a black hole where we feel helpless about our weight, that we feel depressed about our weight, that makes our performances go to pot, etc etc. If you want to avoid this black hole, you need to stop falling for marketing madness, or “genius” on the marketers point of view. They want you to keep falling it for every time, and it does seem a lot of people still do.
I really can’t believe these scams are still in existance, as well as all the products linked to them. These WILL send you into the black hole of hopelessness.
Good natural foods will send you into a world full of hope and achievement, and send your body and mind into a world where everything works better inside and out, and your view of the world improves drastically without even trying too hard. If you think that is overdoing it a bit, try lasting the 12 weeks in its entirety, and then see what your view of the world is?
I don’t buy this idea that people have low expectations so you are willing to accept any old rubbish. That you are willing to believe such processed foods are actually good for you just because they are “low in calories”. I don’t believe most of you will fall for any of those lies.
So you have a clear choice right now. Either you believe and actually carry out what’s on here every day, and make it work for you and your family. Try asking anyone if it sounds like common sense, or try asking a doctor to see if its likely to work? I’m pretty sure they will say its the right thing to do for the short-term and a lifetime!
You go into the infamous “black hole” of processed foods/weight loss clubs, faddy exercise videos and equipment. That neverending world of short term glory, and ultimately the depression of putting it all back on and more. The nasty feeling of spending all that money on plastic exercise equipment, only to see it in langushing in some dark cupboard three months later.
The good news is that i’m here to back you EVERY day in your ambitions and goals. Some of you may even find the idea of being fit and healthy fanciful, i can tell you now its perfectly achievable and there is indeed, a new and better life out there for you!
