Ok so first of all I know I sound like a broken record when I say I am going to lose weight and then go on about how I am going to do it. But this time is different, way different. For starters I am reading a book called “Eat It Later; Mastering Self Control and The Slimming Power of Postponement” by Michael Alvear. I am not to far into it but it is like a twelve step program for those of us who over eat or don’t pay attention to portions. So I will be reading it and sharing the information I find with you. I am literally going to try it this way. I am excited to see how it will work and to see if I can do it. But this is not all.
I am not going to keep track of what I eat, I always feel guilty and I can never keep up with it. So instead I am going to pay attention to portions, what types of food I am eating (going to try to eat more fresh things) AND I am going to eat less fast food, none if I can help it. Yes I am going to keep working out, I am even going to do fun little challenges. The first of which started yesterday, what better day to start squats then on my 26th birthday right? I will keep you up to date on how it is going.
So to round it all up:
- I am going to read a book and follow it, it is not a diet but a way of living. I will share with you the contents of the book and how I am doing with it.
- I am not going to keep track of my food but pay attention to portions and what I am eating.
- I am going to continue to work out and add some fun. I am going to do some monthly challenges, starting with the 30 day squat challenge.
I hope that I can do this. I really want to love my body again. I used to always take pictures of myself but now I barely have any photos of myself. I feel like this is my year to get healthy and be AWESOME! So stay tuned!
