Baby steps...

Jul 24, 2012

Well 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. steps...
