Still no added sugar, and doing an identity exercise

Today, I just stuck with my chicken taco leftovers for food. Even though I ate a huge salad and drank two beers last night, I still lost another half pound. I'm feeling full after all the Mexican food, and I'd be surprised if I lost any more weight. I bought bananas and blueberries and have canned pineapple for times where I feel I want a little quick energy without needing added sugar. I still need to focus on my water intake. I drank a can of seltzer water, three cups of tea and two cups of decaf coffee. It feels like a lot!

I've been thinking more about Atomic Habits in Chapter 2. From the summary:

  • The most effective way to change your habits is to focus not on what you want to achieve, but on who you wish to become.
I'd agree with that, though it's often difficult to change yourself drastically. I'd like to become a healthy, fit and patient person, who is a musician and photographer.

  • Becoming the best version of yourself requires you to continuously edit your beliefs, and to upgrade and expand your identity.
I likely will want to add to this, and edit it, as time goes on.

  • Your identity emerges out of your habits. Every action is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.
I voted for no added sugar in what I ate, and for going to the gym today! I was sometimes patient, but mindful of the times I was impatient. Votes for the person that I'd like to become! As I can continually make choices congruent to the actions I'd think this future version of me would do, I'll get closer to that version. Next month, I'll start on that musician part.
