Getting back on the Horse and trying again
Monday, March 04, 2013
This battle that I have been dealing with on my weight has been ongoing for 20 years. Sometimes I win, most times I lose. I thought two years ago I finally figured it out and did pretty well but got sick. When I was sick I let my old excuses surface and by the time I recovered I was back to my old way of doing things. It is pure madness. I think my goals were just wrong and my thinking was also wrong.
I believed I could manage my trigger foods, modify my eating and stay on track. That work for a hot minute but eventually it failed.
So what is different now? It is the way I look at health and fitness and food.
I am not going to buy any of my trigger foods and leave in the house because of my habits. I use to watch my favorite shows and snack on my treats. Well now, I still watch my favorite shows but the treats are healthy either fruit or a veggie.
I don't buy junk for my household anymore. I went to a BBQ place Sunday and was disgusted they didn't have any healthy sides . I would have loved that place two months ago.
This new mindset has taken time because I had to get real with myself and look at my excuses and my failures. When I removed all of the excuses the real reasons were pathetic.
So my new plan is just a framework for a healthy me.
I will go Week by week.
This week :
I returned Gym three days a week.
I am adding a fruit or Veggie to every meal.
I will be walking at least 30mins a day.
I won't be eating any red meat or pork.
I have given up fast-food (except Subway) and fried foods.
I will not drink anything other than water or tea.
I am staying away from the scale. I will only be weighting- in once a month.
These are the goals I believe I can achieve.
