Steps 1 & 2 Recap and Steps 3 through 6 for Building my New Plan
Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Step 1: Buy New Shoes - I did. I just didn't buy new workout shoes. I decided to spend the money on a couple of new pairs of shoes for work. It is amazing how much better my feet feel now that I am not wearing the same pair of tennis shoes to work every day. Not to mention I feel grown up and professional again! Yippee!
Step 2: I haven't gone to the grocery store yet. But I did get my most recent produce shipment, so I can only buy protein and carb products each. I'll follow-up more when I get to the grocery store.
Step 3: I eat too much meat! I mean really, I probably don't eat all that much, but I do eat too much meat. And I eat really high on the hog. Literally. Beautiful, lovely, well-marbled, perfectly cut pieces of meat. So the next step to implement will be to cut the amount of meat down and to start reining in my indulgent protein habits. I am working on setting up a grid and stating how much of each grouping I can have per week. It's broken into:
Fish - Lean and Fatty
White Meat - Lean White Meat Only
Pink Meat - "Fatty" White Meat, Lean Red Meat (Pork included) and Game Meats
Red Meat - The rest of Red Meat
Flora Based Protein - Including Grains
Step 4: Buy those new work-out shoes
Step 5: I have been too scared to step on the scale. So tomorrow I will be on that scale before my shower.
Step 6: Get into the gym for stationary bike and weights.
At least I feel like I am actually accomplishing things again, not a lot, but it is something! YEAH!
Future Steps: Restart the comprehensive wellness program through work in August; Come up with another compatible exercise plan; Find some viable stress-relievers (Roller-Derby, anyone?); Others to follow, I am sure.
