Jul 24, 2012Well I had my first visit with my nutritionist and realize I have a lot of lifestyle changes to make. About 2 years ago, I gave up soda and became a water drinker. So I already have that change conquered. In the past two weeks, I have started to make a few more small changes to prepare myself for what is to come...
1. I am now 6 full days smoke free...and have no desire to smoke! (Even my love is considering quitting after seeing me stick with it) I found some all natural gum that I chew instead and the craving has dissipated. It is called Peelu gum and it is awesome! All natural, sugar free, aspartame free, wheat free, vegan and ZERO calories. Best discovery I have made lately!
2. I purchased some hand weights and have started using them each night for 30-45 minutes. Yes, they are only 2.5 lbs each and I am still sitting watching TV but at least I am moving something instead of just sitting! And trust me, I feel the burn towards the end and even break a little sweat.
3. I am incorporating more protein and less carbs. And when I do eat a lot of carbs now, I feel the difference...can you say carb coma?
4. I am trying to eat something for breakfast each morning... this one is still a work in progress.
I know I still have many more things to work on, but I have at least started instead of procrastinating. Remember....baby steps...
