I have been on off and on this week. My first week in a supposed to be conscious healthy eating minset has been good and bad. The bad was I haven't lost any weight. My first day was not successful. I was so hungry that I could not seem to control my eating at all and ate my way to 3000 calories.
The good. I exercised. I researched to find out why I was so hungry. I've receieved some feedback. I've researched. I was instructed to work on more protein. My first day consisted of a lot of milk protein and lactaid. It did not end successfully. I did get frustrated and just kind of ate mindlessly this weekend but I did not give up. I will continue to obsess over this issue until I figure something out. I'll never stop thinking about it.
I've bought some protein bars and I can digestively tolerate about half a serving. I can tolerate lactaid milk and I will continue to get the majority of my protein from meat but not too much. I am trying to keep my cholesterol controlled. I am also working on some deviled eggs for this week as well. I am determined to make this work.
You know I told my parents about my problem and they think it's all in my mind. They think I'm crazy. Thanks mom and dad. You're the greatest!
So yes! I've managed to diet successfully for five months and one day just became hungry because its all in my head. But whatever
I've seen many who have enthusiatically managed their plan with mini challenges so I'm creating mine. Mine is to eat within my calorie limit of 1800 calories plus exercise. Keep the protein at higher levels.
I've realized after going through this a few months that my most successful days are when I'm active alot throughout the day doing lots of little mini tasks. So I realized finally that exercise is important but what is even more important is what you're doing when you aren't exercising. You can't jut lay around all day, get up for an hour a day to run and expect to lose alot of weight. I guess that's why the latest articles stress why we now need more than an hour of activity.
My working it part of the challenge.
Get up 10 mins early! 10 minute cardio or ab routine
Lunchtime: One mile walk around the park
Need water? Go downstairs and get it
Gotta pee? Go downstairs and use the downstairs bathroom, EVERYTIME!
I'll report my results in seven days!
Wish me luck!
