Should this be a goal?

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Not sure if blogging should be a target. I know it is a method of thinking things through but it also means getting on the laptop every day - not always possible.

I think I am ... now scratch that. I am now in the right frame of mind to get back on the weight loss wagon. I am still at a bit of a loss to how I am going to fit in exercise but I will figure that out as I go along. My first aim is to get my eating under control I think this past week has been quite successful... I am toying with the idea of using the 5:2 method. That way I will be fasting on a Friday (for both health and religion) plus another day and then on the weekend I will be able to splash out a bit without too much over thinking. The danger there is it would be very easy to wipe out the rest of the week's good work in one day (I could survive on choccie and biccies easily!)

Since Tuesday I have made sure I have had something to eat in the morning, most morning it's been a cereal bar but it's better than nothing. And I have not been eating chocolate. That's basically my diet. No (limited) chocolate - 1 bar instead of 3?

I should be cleaning as I am writing this but motivation, as always, is an issue. And I really need to get my brain in gear and sort out my life. Procrastination has always been a problem for me and that maybe should be isolated and incorporated with my goals - not sure how to measure that one...?

    My opinion:
    Fasting can be dangerous in two ways. One: Your body needs fuel to run on a daily basis. Not getting enough and it won't function properly.(you need at least 1200 Cal per day) Two: fasting doesn't teach you to eat properly.You don't want to "diet" you want to change your lifestyle.
    Trust me! I have been eating two meals or less (and some days not at all)
    for many years, during which time I GAINED weight. This way of eating messed up my metabolism. It wasn't until I was on this SP program for two weeks, that my body stopped thinking it was starving and I started to lose weight. When you start eating more fruits and veggies and a more balanced diet, you will see results! Believe me, I know!
    Blogging and getting involved with Spark Teams really helps!

    Sometimes one goal helps us to make another goal easier,,maybe blogging about this and that will stir you up enough to do a task that you may not follow through with if it just streams through your head while you are walking around. It kind of makes it "out there" and accountable for...

    cereal bars are okay, make sure you drink that water, that is REALLY important.. good luck!!
    I do not believe in fasting other than for my faith, but whatever works for you..
