5% Challenge "Why diets have failed and strategies" For Me!

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Why diets have failed and strategies
1.Most I have been on were strict. I couldn't have anything I loved. Strategies, I am using it now. Make a daily menu and add some of the things I love to the day.
2. Diets always make me feel there is an end to it. As soon as I lost the weight the diet ended. I gained everything back. Strategies: I now look at it as eating healthy. I look at it as a lifetime life change for my health.
3. I tried tracking points through WW, but never did well with that. I can't track as I go. Strategies: Plan out my meals the day before or the morning of. I use SP Tracker. It also tells me if I am getting the nutrition I need. I like that.

Why exercise has failed and strategies
1. Having a slack attitude at times
2. Let exercise become to routine and boring. I lose interest. When I mix it up and do different things, it makes it more enjoyable and fun.
3. There are days I just don't feel well. No execuse. I can lay down on the bed and do exercises. Take my time and keep form.

  Your on to something there. Boredom in the workout! It becomes stale and the mind and spirit fail to get into it after awhile. Not to mention the body becomes accustomed to it and the exercise becomes less effective. Mix it up. Go Cats!

    "All some of the things I love..." It's possible to find new foods to love. That's part of the adventure!
