Well if your a new follower you may not know that I have been trying to loose weight this year. Back in January I joined a Biggest Loser Challenge with some other moms in my city. The challenge ends at the end of this month! I can not believe where the time has gone! I had been doing really well and then I do not know what happened, but I lost my dedication into it. I ended up one day cheating, eating foods that I should not have, then one day went to another and then another.
I honestly was not surprised though in the past I would just give up and say "forget about this weight loss". Then I would get sick of my weight and start all over again. This time I find I haven't waited and given up fully which is what I am happy about. Maybe this is steps in the right direction?
Reality is I am not doing as much exercise as I should be or lack of any on many days. Though I have been getting better at my eating habits and bringing new foods into my kitchen. One big thing is that I have been eating more fruits and vegetables. Yay!! However, I still find I cheat sometimes when I shouldn't be eating at all. Like after work when everyone is sleeping and I should not be eating.
Recently I got a book called the 17 day diet and it is a way to get rid of the extra sugars and white carbohydrates from your body and cravings. I have been doing it a couple weeks now and my meat intake is chicken, turkey and fish and I can pretty much eat as much vegetables and some other good things. Sure I find some days I have super huge cravings. I also have to say YES I have cheated, but overall I am liking the change and finding I am not as tired and have more energy. Though is it because of my food or because the weather is getting nicer?? I'll say it is because of the food as I need to believe that, but Mother Nature keep bringing the sun please :-)
Well I do have to say though, I think my husband is getting sick of fish..lol I am going to search around for a few new recipes so hopefully this will as some excitement with the menu and I'll be sure to share if and what I found.
If you have any suggestions feel free to share :-)
