Okay...I am not the best eater when it comes to contest-prep

Okay...I am not the best eater when it comes to contest-prep. This is my journey, and I am learning along the way. Yes, it is important to focus on the outcome. You alsways need to start with the end in mind. The end -- being when I am up there! But it is also important to enjoy your way getting to the destination. My journey is different than all others and I have learned a long the way that it is not easy. I am learning who I am, what I want, what I don't want. I think through this journey I am building character.

The expwriences that I have learneed have taough me many things. 

I have learned that my concentartion span in short. My mind shifts from one thing to the next very quickly. 
It's hard for me to focus. Well let me reprase -- it's not as easy for me to focus. 

I associate feeling good and feeling love with food. This morning I made crepes for Mother's Day. I learned from this video:

I ate: 1 whole crepe with cream cheese filling, strawberries, bananas, whip cream, yummy! ...Not too bad. I did eat 2 panes de dulce (a little bit of empanada de pi~na, una quesadilla muffin, 3/4 cuerno); Cafe con leche....and bolillo. Strawberries with sugar. 

I felt stuffed, but kept on eating bolillo until  Oneyda (my sister-in-law) told me, "Bety, cuidado con los carbohydratos..." And I said, "Ay! Tienes razon. Ya, ya," and I put it away. 

I left Norwalk at 12:00pm and it is 1:40pm and I am still stuffed...I am at Starbucks drinking coffee so I can get pumped up and go to the gym. I need a hard/tough workout session! I am 19 days out! OMG! The last 3 weeks have to be CLEAN!!! Let's see what I can do.

Love, Bea

The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.
