Well there are some important things that I have found out so far when it comes to sticking with it...
if I am craving chocolate: eat dark! If I eat milk chocolate I will eat and eat, but the dark I eat just a little and my craving is gone!!!
exercise as early as possible... get it done early, and I actually go longer and harder!
cook and plan ahead of time... this is of utmost importance because if I don't plan I am tempted to go out for dinner.
measure inches- don't stress about the scale so much!
eat enough calories an figure out how much that is- it would be a disaster to do all this hard work, and never loose a pound because I am not eating enough...
keep positive and enjoy the moment...
just a little sweet goes a long way, and sugar is the enemy! If I start to eat sugar I will want more, but if I don't indulge I won't think about it as much... and honey is great and for some reason I don't overeat on honey! (plus honey enters the bloodstream at 2 cals/ per minute and sugar at 10 cals per minute!)
All or nothing attitude is going to get me nowhere!!! Yes its a great thought to never mess up, but I am human and it's gonna happen, so take it just one day at a time, and don't give up girl!!!
Eat clean- get the book asap!
Eat RAW as much as possible.
strength train upper, lower, back and abs... I am already seeing results!
cardio the thing that I have trouble getting up and doing... but I have to remember that I love it, it's the getting there that is hard- but I just need to do it!
OK well that is all for now.... KEEP GOING!
