Thought about it and decided...I'm not going to do it!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Yesterday I bought the 6 week diet plan SHRED by Dr. Ian Smith. The plan promises that in 6 weeks you will lose 4 inches, 2 sizes. Boy, did that sound good. So I bought the book, read the guidelines, and purchased the food items I needed to make it through the first few days. Almost immediately, trepidation, anxiety, and stress set in. Every ""what if" I could think of came to mind. Okay, time to STOP and rethink this plan! What do I already know: 1. I hate following specific plans 2. I never stick to specific plans 3. specific plans cause me stress 4. not following a specific plan is best for me 5. I have had more success not following a strict routine whether the strict routine was for eating or working out....
Sooooo...Common sense tells me, this is not for me! I would only be setting myself up for failure(again)...That is why I'm not going to do the SHRED plan. Awwwwww...I feel relieved already! I will use some of the meal plans, some of the smoothie and soup recipes but the plan I follow is going to be all mine and a simple plan at that. MOVE MORE..EAT LESS JUNK..EAT MORE VEGGIES..EAT MORE FRUIT..DRINK WATER..STRESS LESS WHILE DOING SAID PLAN! Yeah, that's the ticket!

    You are learning each day what works for you: discarding what has not worked in the past and going forward with what you know will bring you success. Great way to start the year! emoticon

    ... sounds good to me!... emoticon The Paleo/primal lifestyle is similar for me because I base my meals around protein. Protein/veggies/fruit... I eat more or less depending on what activity/workout I am doing that day. I just have to be consistent with it!

Good luck... emoticon

    You learned a lot by doing this. You know what works for you and you aren't trying to fit into a plan that isn't for you. emoticon

    I'm with you, sister.. I struggle with specific plans big time.. Especially anything strict or confining.

    You got the right idea, its not about dieting it about changing the way you eat into eating healthy foods like fruit and veggies and hears the biggie stop eating the junk food (I need to listen to myself)
