It’s been almost 3 months since my last post. I was tired and burned out — not from blogging but from not getting anywhere with my progress. Who’s to blame? — me. For the last year+, I have been trying to act as if exercise was more important than diet. I was eating just okay most of the time and poorly too often. I did the juice fast for a while, and it worked but, I didn’t follow up with the habits that helped me keep off what I lost.
Well, no more running away.
Step 1: What I eat is going to change: While I don’t live at McDonald’s, I do eat too much garbage. Even the food I get from the cafeteria at work is suspect, at best. It time to focus on more lean protein and up my fruit and vegetable intake.
Step 2: When I eat is going to change: Midnight snacking is not going to cut it. Cutting myself of at 8pm (or, preferably 7pm) will help me keep those calories down.
Step 3: Exercise for health first, weight loss second: Exercise has a lot of health benefits but, for weight loss, it’s not a magic bullet. It has to be in cooperation with good eating habits.
You can run away from yourself or reality. So, for me, it’s time to face it.
