Weekly Blog #2_Love for meat

Monday, May 20, 2013

Over the past few days I've been really motivated to start working out and train again but the weather just doesn't let up. Its been raining for the whole week and I've been searching for ways to exercise at home without being too loud ((folks are still sleeping)). I can't wait for it to be sunny again...

On a different note, I thought that since returning to Sparkpeople I've gained a lot of weight but I actually stayed at the same weight. At college, I usually try to eat one plate of food with vegetables, some meat and fruits, but there are days when I'm tempted by fatty food like honey-glazed chicken, barbecue pork, steak and so on. And on those kind of days I end up eating 3 and over plate full of meat. I know I'm building a bad habit out of it but I think it's time for me to lay off the meat for a while. Just so I can learn how to eat in moderation again instead of overindulging on food I like.

Goal for this week is to lower consumption of meat and lay off the sweets (I have a very sweet tooth). I've been doing exercises in the morning and continuing my Aikido training. Today I made a seafood dish for lunch and feel super light on my feet as compared to eating...all that fatty meat... ugh... I noticed my love handles have begun to disappear and I'm more energetic. It feels great! I'm gonna continue what I've been doing for another week and see how I've progressed.

I don't like to write long blogs because I run out of things to say but
Thanks for reading!

    Good for you! Sometimes just cutting back on one or two things can make a big difference. Go slow and you will find what works for you.

    I have a sweet tooth too and have found that if I start eating sugar then I crave it more. I will still have a cookie or some chocolate once in awhile, but I really have to watch out or I will eat it all day!
