"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control."

You asked me if the energy was a norm for me or a cause of the Atkins diet. The answer to that question would be it was due to the Atkins diet. Eating all the carbs I was eating was making me tired, sluggish, an insomniac, etc. Now since being on this lifestyle I have more energy. I'm on a normal sleep schedule (in bed by X & awake by Y). I'm not snacking between meals. I don't crave the "bad" carbs (bread, pasta, etc). The scale for the most part is steadily dropping, slowly. If you want to know how I'm doing, check out my blogs on my page. I've been trying to keep my progress documented as best as I can, without sounding repetitive every day and/or week.

You know, I get so wrapped up in the struggle to reach the goal line that I forget to simply live the journey. My goal for summer 2015 is to simply live it; to keep moving forward, even if I stumble along the way. It is the lifestyle I want, to walk the road with faithful fervor. So I am going to focus on simply living it.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
(Psalm 37)

We can do it!
