Day 5

One of the must outcomes of my 100 Day plan is getting to a healthy weight. The difference between now and then is the motivation behind this goal. I have changed my diet for the next 15 weeks to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables, and grains I eat while eliminating fried foods, alcohol, soda, sweets and processed foods. Its only been 5 days but I’m doing great.

For the next 100 days, I will only eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, animal protein once per week and only drink water. A friend of mine asked, “So, wait a minute. You’re not drinking alcohol AT ALL?” I responded, “Not for the next 100 days.” He goes on to say, “I was with you until you said no alcohol.” I chuckled.

One thing I’m grateful for is the fact that I don’t have an addictive personality. I can start and stop anything at any time without experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Now I do realize that not everyone is as strong as I am but that muscle was built over time. I didn’t wake up disciplined, I had to learn how to be.

Finishing this 100 day plan takes dedication, sticking to its rigidness takes discipline. At the end of this journey, I want to be able to say, “I did it!” I actually envision what day 100 looks like. I’m standing in the mirror staring at a man who has been transformed; his mind is clear, his body reflects the hard work he had committed to, his finances are in order, his bond and relationship with God is unbreakable and his personal relationships are much stronger.

The key to this 100 day plan is not going back to that person you were 100 days earlier. The goal is to grow immeasurably, to be an inspiration to others and to serve as an example of God’s grace, mercy and love.

This is going to be difficult but it’s certainly going to be worth it.
