F.Y.I. My own individual journey
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Whenever I make a blog entry on someone elses blog, it's never to imply a "Do what I do" I don't do that, and no one else should either. We all have our point of views, and we are entitled to that for our own use, not to put it on someone else. I love hearing stories about your journeys, as much as I like telling mine. So I learn from you in different ways, either through what your doing to lose the weight and gain health, or how you went about doing it.
I am going to be honest here. My own personal view. It took me a long time, actually years to finally get up off my bum and exercise. I will admit to it, I was overweight, tired after a full days work, cranky as heck. And my number 1 excuse was I was "LAZY" It's hard to admit to that, because the most of the population that don't work their tail off in many ways, are. I was your couch spud. I came home and planted. I didn't want to clean house or move in any way other than to the shower and bed. Never had "time" for cooking, so Fast Food it was, mainly hamburgers fries, and of course the milk shake. And of course you know, I also was planted in front of the TV.
I do today. Try to make every minute count. Right now my fingers are getting exercise for a good 15 minutes that's all they get. I move whenever and however I can find to increase my metabolism. I keep as busy as possible.
So whenever I can get a chance I give out information on my own experiences. They are my own, we are each in charge of what we actually do and accomplish. I also try to note and help others, by telling of another friend and or Sparkers journey. But that's where I draw the
I don't care for all the different forms of "Eat this, not That's" being thrown at us from different directions, not an advocate of most all the diet plans and theory's. Today it is so confusing as to how they affect each individual. But they have good points too, and I do use them, I just don't follow their plans explicitly because, it never lasts, and I always look at it as a fad, I also believe what works for some, because some of these do is a choice.
I know what is working for me, and I am happy with the fact, I am eating naturally and following my plan set forth right here on Sparkpeople. I use the nutrition counter faithfully
and I eat nothing but natural foods.
The only thing I am sure to stick with is the Nutri Bullet. All it is, is a mini blender, juice extractor all in one. No need for a $400-500 dollar blender. And it helps me to make sure
I get the nutrients I need from vegetables fruits, seeds and nuts. And that's that.
You have given me lots of ideas and great recipes from each team I am involved in. I take a little information from each.
I am not a Vegan, Vegetarian, Nutritarian, carnivore, omni, orvi (not even sure if these 2 are words) or herbivore. I am just eating the way I think works for me. I don't need a label, I just like being me today.
