We are in to week 3 of healthy eating!!
I have to say I haven't felt this good in years. I'm serious, I have tons of energy, both Joe & I are even sleeping better.
The biggest obstacle for me is not what I thought it would be. I thought I'd really want deep fried anything and fast food. I don't!! I also thought I'd have trouble staying motivated but feeling good is very motivating.
The biggest obstacle is the food prep. The best plan would be to figure out what you will eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the entire week and prep it all on the weekend. It's time consuming during the week to cook dinner and the next days breakfast and lunch.
I did get a little discouraged when aunt Flo showed up, before I realized what was going on. I was feeling good and my clothes were fitting much better and she brought 3 to 5 lbs. of bloat with her. She was mumbling something about chocolate and threatening to cry if she didn't get any.
I informed her that I have left several voicemails for menopause (seems menopause isn't so great about returning calls). My body should figure out by now that my uterus is simply a tracking device and not a baby motel.
I'm really amazed at how great I feel AND I've lost almost an entire size just by eating healthy and yummy food. Recipes to follow.
