Hey all! It’s come to my attention that we are headed for Summer Solstice! That’s just 45 days away to getting that bikini just a tad bit looser on you.
What do you envision yourself looking like in the mirror by then? What do you envision yourself eating or not eating in the next 45 days to get there?
Now don’t get too crazy. We know that 24 hours of fasting will only take off about a half a lb of actual fat give or take.
Here’s what to do:
1. Set yourself a goal for what you’d like to see 45 days from now.
2. Do it!
Remind yourself every day of what you envision. Put up an extra sticky on that fasting wall of yours and read that every day. I’m going to do that right after I finish this post.
Have a treat ready for yourself for when you get there. Like a haircut, or a pedicure, or a day on the beach or buy yourself some flowers. Reward yourself for your progress. I came close to buying a bikini last year when I got down low. I tried some on, but didn’t find what I was looking for. I think I may have to go and buy one - even if it’s falling off of me by summers end.
Here’s my current position:
I’m currently on day 8 of a 21 day fast. My weight today is 183 - and looks like I’m into half a lb a day for the rest of my 21 day challenge. I have memorial day weekend coming up (I plan to feast, and then 11 days in Cancun after that - June 6-17 and of that I’m staying 6 nights at an all inclusive hotel and you know I’m going to have to eat .
The other nights I can stick to OMAD.
My ultimate goal for the next 45 days would be to get into the low 170’s and hover in there and start off summer from that spring board.
For me that’s an ambitious goal as I know my body and I know the refeed after this fast (let’s say I make it to 176ish) is going to chunk me back up 10lbs or so in water and food etc - and then the weekend event and trip are going to also have their way with me. But when that first day off summer hits and I see low 170’s on the scale watch out! It’s going to make the way I feel about myself this summer that much more delicious!
In addition with my OMADS and Water fasting days, I also have started some simple chair exercises to focus on my belly as that is needing the most attention. I posted a video in my journal of what I found if you’re interested in something like that too.
Now if you want to go all in balls to the wall and fast for 40 days then have at it. For me it doesn’t resonate with my goals and lifestyle, but I’ll support you!
Maybe you want to chunk off just 10 lbs - and that is totally doable in the time frame. Where you put your focus is where you put your energy. Creating energy requires use of calories in this 3d world. (I’m going to focus and meditate on a slimmer waistline.)
Join in if you like and let me know your goals!
I’ll be posting updates in here and I am supposed to have free wi-fi in the hotels I’m staying at so no excuses for me not to post on my trip too.
