Everything has been so up and down over the last few months, but I have come to some decisions at least when it comes to the health stuff.
Over the last few months I've talked to many friends who have lost weight and they all did it very differently. Some used shakes, some ate lots of protein, some didn't eat any protein, some avoided carbs and fruits while others didn't . It has been enough to make me want to pull my hair out trying to figure out what to do.
I've tried to do many of these over the summer and the result? I have felt guilty over everything I ate AND I gained weight.
I've finally taken a deep breath and looked over what I did two years ago when I lost all the weight. It was all about calories in and calories out. Simply put, I kept track and exercised. I lost 25 pounds that way. So why am I searching everywhere for another way to do it?
I'm not playing the guilt game anymore. I'm going back to basics. Today I joined a gym. I know that doesn't really mean anything, but that's how I got my work outs in several years ago. One nice part of this is that there is a new gym very close to my house that I pass several times a day so that should make it even easier and I'm entering my food into spark starting today.
Today is a new beginning using old tried and true tricks of the trade. I feel so much better letting all of the guilt go.
Onward we go...
