Week Zero

Friday, February 01, 2013

So far so good. I've think i've mentally prepared myself enough to make this life change to be healthier, which is arguably the hardest part. This morning was a good start. I actually woke up early on my own, without the aid of an alarm clock, and worked out. After the elliptical, I did stomach exercises, a tiny bit of yoga, and stretched. I ate a healthy breakfast of vegie-sausage, toast, and milk (was supposed to have eggs but they disappeared from my fridge!). Also drank 5 cups of water already and it''s only 11 AM! I even remembered to take my vitamins! Let's just hope the rest of the day goes equally as well, and then tomorrow, and the day after that. I guess all one can do is just take it day by day.
I've decided to workout 3-5 times a week. This is week Zero, because I decided to weigh in on mondays, so Monday will be officially week one. I've also decided on Mondays to film what my body looks like and when i reach my goal weight make a video of how i slimed down :) On the first Monday of every month I plan to take measurements.
That's the plan anyway. Wish me luck!

    You've got some great plans. Just remember that doing too much at once is not only overwhelming emotionally, but also physically. Your body resists change, so after a few days or a few weeks it will rebel against drastic changes, which is when many people lose their way and give up. Focus on small, sustainable changes: add in an extra serving of fruits or veggies to your day, cut back on the less healthy foods, do shorter and easier workouts to start then build up as your body becomes accustomed to it. Even if the only change you make for the first week is to leave 3 bites of food left on your plate at every meal, that can mean leaving behind hundreds of calories and will get you moving forward. Ease into the changes and give your body a chance to accept those habits before forcing more on it.
