This last week has been fantastic as far as healthy eating goes. I finally feel comfortable in my healthy eating skin. I feel confident I can make the right choices, fuel my body properly and improve my overall health. As a bonus I am only 5 pounds away from my first goal. Hopefully I surpass that goal this week.
A few things have really helped me in getting my shit in order. First of all I don’t even allow myself to buy food that is going to tempt me. I still allow myself to indulge and have a treat every now and then. It is just preferable if I don’t have 10 servings available at all hours of the night. My self control is not that good yet. Another thing that has really helped me is loading my meals and snacks with fresh veggies. It sounds pretty simple but I did not get to be 100+ overweight by overindulging in vegetables. My body just feels so much better when I am eating a lot of veggies and fruit. I have energy, my sleep is better and overall I just feel great. The weight loss is just a bonus.
This week I really want to focus on getting into the gym and starting a work out routine that is maintainable. I have signed up for a 10km, a 5km and two (!!!!!!!!) half marathons so I need to get my but in gear. Now that I feel comfortable with the healthy eating aspect of weight loss it is time to kick it up in the gym. I know my body wants more and I am totally ready to let it have it.
What is your Monday motivation to kick ass this week?
