The epic wins keep rolling in! This week, check out the epic wins by two All-Stars, Meg and Denyse, as well as special player Mia Quinn.
Christina (Epic Win: Complete one week using Drs Ken’s Plan. 3/20 – 3/27 – 2012):Â “It was not easy as this food plan was so different from what I have done for so many years. But I feel so much better. Am on week 2.”
Garrett (Epic Win: Better deal with people’s negativity):Â “I’m a lot more relaxed, a bit more optimistic. I can handle people’s simmering attitudes by putting oil in the pan and then adding food(giving them something they can confidently release their energy out into). Hahaha! I’ve learned that everyone has their own problems but a lot of the time you can’t figure out what their problem is, so their negativity reaches you in some way or another; if you can give them something they enjoy and feel better by they’ll start to better connect to others and lose some of their negative charge and you’ll get the benefit of a friendlier person and satisfaction of knowing you spotted a problem and did something to make things better!”
Laura (Epic Win: Stick to the diet Autumn gives me for 7 days starting today, Monday the 26th):Â “I feel amazing- just to have stuck with something consistently for a week feels like a huge triumph. It’s not that I was perfect by any means, just that everytime I strayed from my path I sweetly drew back to it. That’s the path to gettign Superbetter!”
Meg (Epic Win: Get through an entire week without ordering out):Â “Last week, I successfully did not order any delivery from Foodler. When I didn’t want to cook, I got up and out of the house and walked down the street to get my breakfast. I ate dinner out once by myself after an 11-hour day but made sure to focus on a protein and a soure of good fats (avocado!) instead of just chowing down on comfort food. I slipped up once and allowed myself a chocolate muffin but the guilt I still feel about it makes me pretty sure it won’t happen again. I’m being really good at meals with my friends, eschewing the fries I want so badly for a hummus plate to share with my ally. I DID order delivery just this past Sunday, after my week was up, BUT I ordered a salad and hummus and did NOT order from the place that sends the delicious rolls that I love. Success!!”
Denyse (Epic Win: Complete editor’s revisions and get a book contract!):Â “I’ve buried myself into my manuscript revisions for 9 days, but it was well worth it. The revisions suggested by my editor not only made my book better it awarded me a contract. I feel great and recharged to tackle many challenges!”
Joanna (Epic Win: Drink my well water):Â “My well water tastes terrible. It been a real obstacle for me in drinking enough to stay hydrated. I have been exhausted from dehydration which leads to caffeine chugging, extra snacking, and a nasty cycle of bad habits. I set this as my first epic win because it was so important to many of my health goals. I knew that I had to find a way to make it palatable in order to succeed. I found a way: add lemon juice. I have never enjoyed adding lemon to water, but the slick feel of the well water made me think of a base so adding an acid was worth a shot. I’ve been able to drink adequate water for the first time since moving here six months ago. Drinking my well water is such an epic break through that my stress level has been drastically reduced, both physically and psychologically.”
Mia Quinn (Epic Win: Bust Hypervigilance):Â “I am really proud of myself for the work I did over the past couple of weeks on Hypervigilance and social anxiety. I faced some pretty big challenges and came out of them stronger than ever. I feel encouraged to keep making my relationships with people stronger! And I discovered some great tools with one of my allies that are a big help.”
