Challenge it is not, but something to aim for it is!

Ok, dear followers of my insane ever changing blog! Here I come again! In 100 or so days blogging I have done everything or almost everything wrong. And the first and most important thing I did wrong was to challenge myself doing things that I wasnt ready to do! Challenges are fun and bring out the best in people. It is absolutely ok for people to challenge themselves to aim higher, dream bigger and live fuller! Challenges bring out the best in people and let them discover bounderies are only mental limitations. However saying all that one needs to be psychologically ready. And I for one was not! So I am deciding to aim for much easier tasks. I will aim to stay on low carb for 100 days without breaking it. I will not attempt to weigh myself or count calories. I will count carbs though or at least try to be as clean as possible! I am now at my third highest weight ever= 250 pounds! I would always wait till Mondays or New Year or new this or new that to start new and healthier life. Why not start Thursday? Every time I started Thursday I failed. I know its in my head. Time to break free of that mindset. I am starting today, Thursday and count down 100 days to low carb life. Let me define Low carb life as I see it. I will definitely attempt to stay below 50 grams of total carbs a day! I will keep my fingers crossed and I know its absolutely doable. Will it be perfect? I know it probably wont, but is it doable? I know it is, I did for 6 month last year. It wont be purist low carb as some define it ,but it will be low carb the way I see it and it will keep my insulin low! Here we go, DAY 1 is today! Here we go again!

I know you can do this, Vadim!

I want you to know it too! Prove it to yourself!

It's time to show your body and mind who's boss! :-)

BTW, can you tell us about your new picture? I'm sure there's a story behind it!

Dr. Sears (Zone Diet) always says that "you're only one meal away from the Zone." Whether you're on the Zone plan or another one, each meal is an opportunity for success! If one doesn't go so well, another chance will be coming up soon!

Harry, there are lots of stories behind that picture. Good memories! Some time I will tell it but now its just a picture. That was my ex-girlfriend. I still miss her badly even though she is like an ice cream. Tastes good, yammy but eventually will kill you! Didrina, I am with you girl , your philosophy is so like mine!

Best of luck with your new goals. I know you can do it and you will feel better with every day that goals by. Even the bad days in life are better when you know you are sticking to a goal and doing great things for your body a little at a time.

Hey Vadim,

Just checking in. How're you doing?

Vadim said...

I am doing ok so far. Thanks Didrina! I started low carbing again on Thursday, least favorite day of the week, but so far so good. i am actually enjoying it fully. I did survive two parties, but ate plenty of stuffed chicken. chicken was stuffed with baked apple. didnt eat any apple but it was infused witht the flavour. GOOOOOd staff! i havent counted calories though. I am eating till full satisfaction! i will start updating my blog soon. But thnks for asking!

I thought I had commented on this post, sorry about that. You know I'm always lurking around. :)
Glad to hear your doing so well.
How are you and the boss doing?
Hopefully she has come to her senses.
Catch ya later.

Vadim said...

My boss and I are ok now. I am avoiding her for the most part and doing my job. I am giving her almost no reasons to be bitchy about anyhting and we just say hi and bye. Thats pretty much in a nutshell!

Harry said...

Knock, knock ... anyone home?

When are you coming back to the blogosphere, Mr. V?

How about an update? I've been wondering how you're doing but I hate to bug you about it. I sure hope things are continuing on in a positive direction.

Be well.

Vadim said...

Lol, Harry you are so welcome to knock any time! I have been so freaking busy and stressed at work! I do read everyone's blogs though, just havent commented a lot. I do miss blogging and will pick it up soon!

Didirina said...

Happy Spring, Vadim!

How have you been? Have you been Kissing and Killing?

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
