So here I am, back to the drawing board. But I won't get frustrated. Reason being...I know what DOESN'T work for me. I know that I can't cut out sweets completely, because when I do, I going on these binging exploits where I eat cookies, poptarts, and more cookies. Then I feel bloated and worn out. So I have decided to treat myself daily. The thing is, I need to eat them in MODERATION! I'm going to ration out 150-200 calories a day to satisfy my sweet tooth. The rest of the time, I'm going to eat clean. I actually love the way eating clean makes me feel, I just can't do it all day, every day. But I need to look into new recipes for eating clean, because the same food everyday get boring.
Working out really isn't a problem for me. I love the way it feels once I'm done. I'm even starting to love running. However, I need to work out first thing in the morning. Early in the morning, I tend to tell myself, " Oh, I'll do it later." But then later never comes. Doing it first thing in the morning will get it out the way and give me a "natural high" for the rest of the day.
I've also been getting off my water regimen. I love water and to me, nothing else, not soda, juice, iced tea or lemonade, can quench my thirst the way water does. It just makes me feel so good, like I'm cleaning out my insides. So my 8-10 cups per day is back in action!
Please wish me luck! And if you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to leave a comment! Thanks fellow sparkers!
