Still at it, but have accomplished much much more!
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Well I'm still at the weight loss game...yes it's become a game for me now, good God! I'm sick of this game however.
I have managed in the past 6 months to run 2 half marathons and have run farther than i ever thought I would ever be able to or would have the desire to do, LOL! For that I am very proud of myself.
I have learned a lot about myself in the process. I've learned that I can handle the workouts, that's not my problem. My problem is the eating, it's out of control and has taken over control of ME. My struggle is to get control over it and I'm failing miserably at it! This sux and I don't know what avenue to take next on this journey. I think i need a drastic change to jump start my whole aura and get re-motivated!
Well that's all for now!

I remember feeling very out of control with my eating too.
I was eating so much horrible food. Every day. I kept wanting to change, but didn't. For some reason, it is far easier for me to do a "both" situation. If I am working out, I don't want to ruin all my progress in that area with poor eating habits, and if I am eating right, I don't want to screw up and get lazy with my workouts!!!
What really did it for me was "clean" or cleaner eating.
Instead of processed food, I have smoothies for breakfast. Just fruits, veggies (and now a little bit of chia seeds. (supposed to keep you fuller longer, and have great Omega 3!)
Instead of more processed food, I have a salad for lunch. I know, so many people complain, but it is fresh and filling and I love it every day. I change things up if I want, but I don't always want.
Dinner is whatever I want. Usually a lean meat and veggie and starch (like potatoes or rice).
Weekends are a freeing time, in that, I don't have the salads (maybe that is why I dig the salads during the week so much.) Lunches resemble (or are even leftover) dinners. Sometimes dinner on the weekends is even pizza. I just use moderations and keep things in my calorie range.
I don't eat sugar (occasionally in moderation I might have something, like at the birthday celebrations I keep having to go to lately, but most days, sugar does not exist in my plan.
I'm going for a whole foods and healthy eating.
NOW, after this LONG ramble (apologies!) I challenge you to try it for a week. After I did it for a week, I felt so freaking fantastic that I couldn't wait to eat healthier and healthier. It is now what keeps me going.
