I've been away for a while and now I'm back!
For the past few months I haven't been using spark people or following any healthy eating habits. I know I need to restart so I've decided to come up with a two week cycle. Every two weeks I will add something else into for the 1st time or back into my healthy lifestyle. So far I have a few planned out. I need some ideas for after week 10 finishes.
Week 1-2: No Fast Food (not even stopping for a coffee... no temptations!)
Week 3-4: Start tracking again on SP (though this might start sooner)
Week 5-6: 4-5 servings of fruits and veggies a day (this has always been hard for me)
Week 7-8: Drink at least 2 nalgenes of water a day.
Week 9-10: Start fitness classes again
Week 11-12: Any ideas?
Starting again will be hard. I know that each of these on their own should not be too hard to follow. I also know that once you continue doing something for about 3 weeks it becomes a habit so by adding things in 2 week cycles I'll always be working on 1 or 2 new healthy habits at a time. I figure what better way to get things started.
Week 1 start -
It has now been 2 days since I started no Fast Food. I have never been a big fast food person until recently. A few things hit all at once starting with the fridge in my apartment dying and ruining all of my food in May. Once I got a new fridge it seemed to still not work very well thawing frozen food I bought as it cycled through the cooling cycle. I was also starting to move from my apartment into a new apartment (June) with friends so I stopped buying a lot of groceries since I didn't want to have to move them all or get rid of them.
Stopping and deciding to pick up some quick dinner, cold drink, snack was too easy and from almost never getting fast food I started going almost every day. Mostly McDonalds but also chinese and pizza started to creep in.
As of right now I'm 2 days out and only some slight temptation for fries. Great way to start out again!
