I have gained weight that I need to get off. I don't feel healthy.
So I'm going to get back to what works best for me. I'm getting back to basics. I really do think that what works for one doesn't necessarily work for others. The best part is that the hubs is going to be joining me :)
This is what has worked for me in the past:
- Drinking at least 9 cups of water
- Walking/working out at least 5 days a week
- Keeping my sodium below 2,000mg
- Planning my meals in advance
- Not being necessarily low carb but watching my carbs and keeping them under 150g/day
- Blogging every day and reading and leaving comments on other blogs.
- Journaling online
- Getting up early
I work afternoon shift so it's been very easy to sleep in. When I sleep in it's not as easy to find time to work out, to keep up with cleaning the house, it's harder to get all my water in and there's less time to blog :( So today I got up early, it sucked but I lived!
I started today by drinking 3 cups of water and doing some squats/crunches and girly pushups.
Then I had a coffee and grabbed a bowl of fibre one cereal with skim milk, banana and walnuts. 2Tbsp kefir and 2 Tbsp 5% cream for coffee.
One thing I can't plan today is dinner. I have a meeting which includes dinner and I never know what it will be but I'll just choose the best I can. I am taking a container of fruit so that I won't be tempted with any dessert.
3 more cups of water :)
Since I got up earlier today I had time to go for a walk :) I ended up walking for 35 minutes. I'm also going to get some walking in on the way to my meeting. That is another one of my plans to get extra movement/exercise in whenever I can.
Lunch was simple: veggies, cheese, a couple of olives and an apple with some pb2 mixed with yogurt.
Something else I'm doing is making some containers of veggies and fruits in the fridge ready to grab for both myself and the hubs. Also buying cheese in individual portions. Quick and easy!!
3 more cups of water. And I've got my 9 cups in.
Anyway enough rambling for today. Tune in tomorrow for more :)
