Positive Outlook..

Friday, June 07, 2013

Since my last blog was a little negative I decided to post another blog today. A more positive one. I have so many things to be grateful and positive about. The first one is really important. My husband is really starting to focus on living healthier and getting fit. He is on 2 softball teams now, playing outfield, and he has started to go to the gym after work with a friend. Luckily, his friend is a semi pro wrestler and is training him. He seems to be happy about it. So am I. He is now starting to focus on eating healthier too. He has completely given up soda. He is trying to drink a gallon of water a day and the only other thing he drinks is Gatorade. I am trying to make him healthy lunches and dinners everyday. I am really pushing towards waking up as early as him to make him breakfast in the morning too. He's also cut back a lot on cigarettes. (Such a bad habit I am lucky to never have picked up). He was a pack a day guy, now he is trying to make a pack last him 3 days. He's tried to quit cold turkey in the past and it never works. I think this will be the best way for him. I think once he cuts back enough he will switch to the gum or e-cig. He's taking it slow.

Another amazing thing to be positive about is my friend dropped off all her turbofire stuff the other day!

I am going to start the program on Monday. I am super excited and nervous to start. I got to push myself to stick with it. I have trouble with that. The bad voice is strong in this one... LOL
I have let a bunch of people know that I'm starting though, so hopefully that will help. I'm going to have to ask people to push me too. Cause I am very good at talking myself out of stuff. With this, I just need to figure it out and do it! I am writing a meal plan and making a grocery list of all the food I am going to need. It's kinda cool cause I read the little book on nutrition and I was pleasantly surprised that I already eat almost all the things they recommend. I also stay away from all the foods they say to limit or avoid. I did the calculations they have you do for how many calories I should be eating during the program. It said 1600! That sounds so high! I've moved my calories up to 1300 recently. I am going to start at 1400 the first week. Then move up as I go along. Ill probably try for 1500 in week 2 or 3. I know it is important to eat enough though. My friend who gave me the stuff said she had done it before and didn't eat as much as it said to. She didn't get very good results. This time she followed the plan and got great results. It's so hard to accept that to lose weight you have to eat more. I guess its important though....
Well I am going to take before pictures this weekend. Then I want to take after pics every 30 days! I can't wait to see results!!!

    Good for you! I find that when I talk out loud to myself in positive wording only, and actually hear myself say wonderful things I am going to do or that I'm worth it, I follow through with NOT eating the crap and I exercise more, and I care more about me! JUST DO IT!! YOU ARE WORTH IT! Post some little diddies around that inspire you to keep it movin and eat healthfully too!

    Yes, I think eating more is crucial--especially eating more of good stuff. Your metabolism I've heard is like a furnace and needs fuel to burn. Try experimenting, make sure you get enough protein, and see what works. I'm excited to hear how you like Turbo Fire! You CAN do it! Don't be afraid to stick to the program. You can do it!
