Where have I been?
Well - that's a great questions. Thanks for asking. I can honestly say that I have been lost in a haze of sugar for the last 8 months. Last year I lost around 40lbs, I got into running, was eating very clean, got rid of joint pain, completely thinned down and felt awesome. Fast forward a year through a break up, a new stressful job, a home sale and purchase, a move, one of my kitties died and gained 55lbs. I feel horrible, nothing fits me anymore, and I look terrible. I have to find a way to get my life back under control. I know what needs to be done. I have resolve every morning to make it happen and then by the end of the day I have lost that resolve.
So I am going to take this in steps. Here are some life changes I will make through 2015.
1.) Start eating regular meals only and stop all day grazing.
2.) Eliminate all artificial sweeteners and additives.
3.) Get back to clean, Paleo eating.
4.) Incorporate regular exercise back into schedule.
5.) Get enough sleep each night.
6.) Drink water every day. (I haven't had a soda now in 2 years!)
7.) Mindful eating
So step one is to work on #1 above. I will start eating at 7am, noon, 4pm energy bar, and dinner at 7:00pm. That is the plan.
Here I go!! Merry Christmas!
