The Devil Inside

Hi Friend.

I am back to writing.

The last 15 days of July I have wandered in the desert of the internet.

I was excited about sharing my food plan for July but I could not make a decision on a couple of things and guess what? I have not taken action. Shame on me. But I forgive myself and I am back from those dark days.

I am convinced that the inner voice that speaks to us is not our friend.

Steven Pressfield famously calls it the resistance.

In this blog post he sums the struggle for our lives in the best explanation I have seen about the Ego vs the Self. How the resistance is trying to kill us anyway it can. Worth a read.

Dr. Glenn Livingston calls it The Pig.

He has this post providing examples of how the pig lies to you to eat shit that you know is not good for you. Bottom line the Pig is trying to kill you slowly with food.

Understanding and accepting that you have a powerful voice inside your head that does not want you to change. So changes in your diet will sound the alarm and bring this voice to full power. It will lie. It will distract. It will give half truths.

The good news is that you are in control. Your rational brain is in control. Stay in the now. Be Present.

Follow the links for both Pressfield and Livingston to learn more.

I will be writing more about this and what I settled on with my eating plan.
