So it is halfway through the month and I am finally getting it together.
This past week I really focused on getting the eating under control. And I lost 2 lbs.
Yeah for me!
I think at times I get so crazy trying to do it all that nothing sticks. So I'm working on keeping a focus where it counts the most. Food and nutrition. I heard from a nutritionist that with weight loss it is 80% what you eat, 10% exercise, and 10% supplements. Weird I thought. And then she said - so how far do you need to walk to work off the extra potatoes compared to how fast you can chow them down???? I see her point. And it's usually the exercise that falls by the wayside when I get busy.... so focus this month is on what is passing these lips.
I am ramping up the lean protein and easing on the carbs. But not cutting out the carbs completely because - the nutritionist is right - when I cut the carbs I'm okay for a few days and then I go cuckoo for carbs! So looking for the right fit.
And my mood is leveling out. I'm not doing that emotional eating at the end of the day this week. By getting more protein in me at each meal - it seems to help me level myself out emotionally. If I get enough balance during the day --- I can manage my self and stay away from the peanut butter and honey after 10 pm.... this is huge for me.....
And on the fun side - I must admit I struggle shamelessly between crushes on Bob or Dolvett - who would I pick for my trainer.... Biggest Loser - yes I watched last night ... I wish they would spend more time on nutrition.... education... it is amazing what they can do with focus and full days spent on workouts....I'm just happy with my 2lb loss and a chance to do goo goo eyes at the training guys....
Focus my friends. Pick one thing and do it exceptionally well this week.
