So like I mentioned before I am really committed to start changing my life. I can't keep looking at weight loss as a short term thing. I can't keep going balls-to-the-walls perfect diet, workout overload and then burn out. It's quite obvious I've repeated that behavior more times than I can count in my life and its not working.
So step one is having reasonable rules and discipline that i can commit to for longer than a few months. I'm doing that by following the body for life eating plan that says for 6 days a week eat 3 small meals a day and 2 snacks. Each is about 1.5 fistfuls of food from the allowed food list which includes lean protein/complex carbs/veggies. 1 day a week, though, is an off day or a cheat day. Eat whatever you want. Satisfy your cravings and recharge mentally and physically.
So today, I craved the chocolate but thought to myself, "I can wait until Saturday." I know that NSV IS rather anti-climatic but it really is a big deal for me.
I feel like I can really stick to a plan when a free day is always a week away. My cravings won't constantly be sitting in the back of my mind for weeks until I crack and just binge on the bad shit.
And the whole idea is that eventually I won't even crave bad stuff or care much about a free day. But lord knows I am not there yet!!
We did our legs and abs workout today and I'm feeling really good! Hope everyone had a fab day :) here's to tiny non scale victories adding up to large scale victories!
