So, this is what I’ve been thinking. I haven’t very much enjoyed this diet the past couple of weeks. If I can make it only 2 more days, I will have been on it for two weeks. Yay! Go me! It’s true, I do feel better, haven’t had as much gas or bloating, etc. But I’m bored of eating the same exact foods! It’s getting really old. Plus, we have cookies in the refrigerator and I want them AND we’re having nachos tonight that I’d like to eat as well. So…what’s a girl to do? I think I need to focus on two things as I still continue this weight-loss journey. 1) I want to pray about it and really have God with me, and 2) I forgot the other thing.
Oh yeah…2) set some rules up. You know, we have rules in life to keep us safe. For instance:
1. I always brush my teeeth everyday.
2. I get 7-8 hours of sleep a day.
3. I try to exercise.
So, if I’m setting all these rules, I need to learn to set rules up for my health. I need to learn to only eat when I’m hungry. Or only eat 2 cookies, etc. So….maybe I’ll follow some “rules.” Here are some off the top of my head:
1. Eat healthy 85% of the time. Veggies, fruit, whole grains, protein.
2. You may have sugar and bread – just in moderation! You can not eat continuously all the time. You’ve eaten to make yourself sick before and that wasn’t good. So, here are some ground rules: you may have 1 “treat” a day – whether that’s candy, cookies, ice cream, etc. But only 1! And make it in moderation.
3. Run. 🙂
