I'm one week in.....

Saturday, June 01, 2013

If you believe in serendipity, in fate or coincidence, as I do, then you would have to take a closer look at something that keeps presenting itself.

Time and time again, I would see articles about eating clean for hormonal adjustment; about the effects of sugar/flour on your metabolism. It just kept popping into view. I've struggled with eating plans for years; seems like my weight has been an issue, along with emotional eating, and habitual overeating, as long as I can remember.

This past week, I've started following Daily Burn online, with their recommendation of cutting out all sugar, soy, dairy, gluten, alcohol and artificial sugar. I've been absolutely faithful; and the first few days were a little rough, the cravings for other foods stayed with me.

But I'm on day 8 now, and I feel really good. I love that there is no restriction on calories, so I eat when my body is hungry. But WHAT I eat, matters. I'm also really working towards just 3 meals a day, and sometimes a snack in the afternoon. Adding lots of veggies is still something I have to work at. I also haven't been successful at incorporating a regular workout into my day yet. ...... sigh.......

But so far, so good! As of this morning, I have lost 6 pounds; I have had a lot of energy, the cravings are gone, and I did a kickboxing workout this morning. Feels great!

Maybe I CAN accomplish some of my goals for this year.....
