“There is no perfect condition so now is the perfect time and today is the perfect day to take action”- Debasish Mridha
I awake and step toward the almighty scale. I do have a small accomplishment, I made it through the movies yesterday without eating popcorn and as you know from The Pursuit of Ketosis – Day 3 this is no small feat for me. Luckily my movie theater now sells these delicious Whisp snacks and they are high protein, low carb, and gluten-free!
I need to make a quick confession, I snuck a Propel into the theater. Not because I’m cheap, but because the theater doesn’t really offer anything for me to drink. I breezed right past security. If you stuff your purse with enough tampons, you can get just about anything past a male security guard.
Yesterday was an exercise rest day for me, I know what that means. When I don’t move, the scale doesn’t move. I step on the scale and voila, no change in weight.
I need to make another confession. Even though I have clearly determined in my last few blogs and specifically in Are You or Someone You Love Gluten Intolerant? I’m still eating gluten! You must think I’m crazy right? Do you want to know why? It’s because I bought all the clinics snacks and I don’t want to waste them. So instead of wasting them, I might as well poison myself. Crazy thinking, I know.
As I sit down at my desk a calendar reminder pops up for Surfers Healing and I instantly feel my heart skip a beat. Surfers Healing is a non- profit organization that teaches children with autism to surf which is amazing, but it is so much more than that.
Have you ever entered a room, an event, or in this case a beach and felt chills throughout your legs and so much emotion in your body that tears start to flow? We have been fortunate to attend Surfers Healing two years in a row and it has happened to me twice.
I know I’m not the only one who has these feelings toward the event because a Mom friend of mine described the day as being exhilarating, beautiful, and miraculous.
The best part is watching the kids react to the amazing environment that the caring team fills the beach with. I’ve watched children stop stimming, echolalia diminish, and kids previously plagued with anxiety relax and enjoy themselves. One of the most amazing things is that this team of talented surfer volunteers somehow gets almost every kid up a surfboard!
The Surfer’s Healing team hashtags their event photos #oneperfectday and I can’t think of a more appropriate tag.
So, what does this have to do with weight loss? Well, what if we had one perfect weight loss day? What would it look like? What would you do? What would you eat? What type of exercise would you partake in? And most importantly, how would you feel?
Wishing you one perfect weight loss day!
