I wanted to let all of you know that from now on I will be posting on http://www.fromsintothin.com
The primary focus of this blog is to get healthy and lose weight. Help me reach my goals by following me there on my 2013 journey to success.
Yes it is true, for the past while my blog has taken to the back burner but it is time to get back on track..
Funny thing is, while I was too busy doing all of these”far more important” things I never took a step back to remember how important my blog is to me. My blog is one of the #1 cures to all of my problems, It is an outlet for me and even this one simple post has made me feel better. From now on I pledge to post a minimum of three times a week if not more.
Thank you WordPress for motivating me to start a blog, to better myself and for keeping me accountable throughout this journey!
Here are just a few of my lame excuses for not blogging..Yes I admit it, they are lame but life happens!
Car problems…The is nothing worse than having to spend money on car repairs..
Work! Who would have ever thought that running a Cupcake store could be so stressful!
Planning ahead for exercise, healthy meals and Weight Watchers! Yes, WW I have started the new points + program and LOVE it!.
That is all for now! See you soon freinds!
Yipee!! Its working It is really working! I am down a total of 7 pounds since Saturday?!?! That’s a pound a day!! In the grand scheme of things it may not seem like much but man oh man I feel great.
My mom always used to say when you lose one pound think of it as a brick of butter. That’s a lot!
People at the grocery store probably thought I was nuts when I was re-arranging the butter in my cart and taking pictures but you know what? I don’t care because I just lost 7 pounds!
Lol as a matter of fact I hope that I become known as the crazy girl who rearranges the butter for pictures every week!
Believe me, when it comes to weight loss I have tried EVERYTHING! From Weight Watchers to Dr.Bernstien, South Beach to Jenny Craig you name it, I have done it! Each and every time I would come to lose around 10-15 pounds I would reward myself with ?!? You guessed it, FOOD! Everything from chinese to doughnuts, chips with dip and anything that was deep-fried. The weight would simply come back faster than you could imagine.
For the past week I have been studying The Slow Carb Diet from The book The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferris. It is reassuring to know that Tim has not only done the diet himself but that It has taken him over 10 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical experiments to come up with a scientifically proven diet. I am determined to make this work! It seems pretty straight forward so far.
1. Avoid “White” Carbohydrates (or anything that can be white) Exception: cauliflower
2. Eat the same few meals over and over again
3. Don’t Drink Calories
4. Don’t Eat Fruit
5. Take one day off per week (Binge Day)
I believe with any diet it is very important to want this for you and no-one else. It is important to be organized and to set goals along the way.
So you may be thinking why now? what will be different this time?
For me it is a few things:
1. I am sick of feeling lethargic
2.I want to be heathy and to add years to my life
3. I have registered for the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon and have 173 days to train!!!
4. I have an entire wardrobe in sizes 6 and 7 just waiting for me to wear
5. I want to be able to rock a bikini or some pretty lingerie for my husband
6. Most of all I am ready and willing to do this for ME!
Yesterday started with a motivational wall to keep me inspired throughout the journey, Here are some of the things on it:
The afternoon was then followed by an Aquafit class at the gym and a grocery shopping trip to the states. All in all we remained focused on the diet and I mapped out a gym schedule when we got home.
Today I am feeling good. We started the morning with a high protein breakfast within 30mins of waking up (This is one of the crucial steps of the 4 hour body). Evan though I am not a huge fan of beans I realize how important they are to eat on this diet. So for breakfast we had Nulaid Reddi Egg Scrambled Eggs with Pancetta, Canned Re-fried Beans, Arriba! Fire Roasted Black Bean and Corn Salsa weighing in at 27g of protein.
Now it’s time for one more chapter in the 4-Hour Body, Lunch, Gym and work. Until next time 🙂
