Getting adjusted to healthy lifestyle again

Monday, October 15, 2012

Just wondering if any of you have ever experienced being irritable when you started changing your eating habits? I officially returned to consistent healthy eating today and I feel great that I am back on board, but its difficult since I had been eating whatever I wanted for the past year. For the past few months I had attempted to lose weight but it just didn't stick. But I have a feeling that this irritable mood will pass soon. Especially since I am going to be more active and will be getting more rest. When I had lost weight before, it was successful becase I started off gradually with everything. I started off with just making sure I had enough sleep, did not skip any meals, and I stopped eating to close to bedtime. I had also started off working out 30 minutes most days of the week.

So I started back being active also. Yesterday I walked for a couple hours (1 hour to and 1 hour from) and I was proud of myself for walking to my destination when I could have easily taken the bus. When I got back home, I laid on the floor for a few minutes as my cat came over to greet me. (She laid right next to me and purred lol) I had the feeling that I had a great workout. I felt like every muscle had been worked. Now that I live in an area where its nice to walk outside, I am more interested in walking for exercise. There are plenty of trees and a nice trail that isn't too far.

I'm also looking forward to playing dancing video games on the Wii. This helped tremendously in the past and I will be doing this again to jumpstart my weight loss this time. I recently got the new Just Dance 4 game and its great because there are better songs to dance to that the last one. (I've been buying these games since the first one came out.) Would you believe there are people out there who don't think that this is real exercise?! Well if it isn't then why did the pounds drop so fast when I did this before? lol Anyway, just blogging about this just made my mood a little better. I can't wait to dance in my living room tonight and become a fat burning machine once again:)

    Yes, it's very common to get irritable when you change your eating habits. But once your body gets rid of all of the toxins you will feel so much better. Then you'll notice that you actually get cranky when you eat refined sugar. It sounds like you're having that initial withdrawal but it does pass. emoticon

    I am thinking of purchasing a Wii to get the workout in. It will get cold very soon where I am from so walking outside may not be possible. Great to see you getting back on track.
