My 2 rule plan has been working (see entry Jan 19th) Having just two rules makes decision-making so much simpler.
I have been following my "rule 1" by eating mostly "healthy" foods
(there were a few "other" foods eaten (potato chips, 2 diet pops, 4 beers, peppermint candy,
a few cookies) but that was for a whole week, so I don't think that's all that bad. It is a great improvement from previous weeks. I notice that I am eating a lot of fruits and veggies, lean protein, but am not much interested in anything else.
I have increased my exercise SO much and it feels great! I did keep with the plan for the whole week. There was one rest day that I did not exercise at all, but I am going to consider that therapeutic. I kind of felt that I needed it. I started taking Zumba locally and love it. I have tried a variety of work-out tapes including belly dance, hip hop, and ballet. I have also been lifting weights, using bands, and stretching.
As far as the rest of my life.....it just seems like I have so much free time! (?) It just seems like all my other tasks are so much easier and go so much faster. Everything seems to get done that needs to....I had a simple routine that I had developed to get basic tasks done and I am just following that kind of on autopilot. Then I have more time for relaxing, reading, creativity, and fun.
So far, so good!!!!
