Supervising The Brain Is A Full Time Job

Yesterday was my first day of starting my food protocol, starting 20 minutes exercise each morning, and starting writing my novel. I had no idea that supervising my brain is such a full time job! I know, you probably laugh and say, well, who did you think do that for you?! What I mean is that it takes a hundred percent awareness and constantly hearing thoughts that try to convince me to do the opposite of what I planned and I needed to pause and run models after models. By 5pm after I did all that I planned to do, I suddenly felt like I had to relax and as soon as I did that I found myself eating off protocol.

Is it supposed to be this hard of a work?
