Hey Friends!I’…

9 Feb

Hey Friends!
I’ve had a lot goin on the past few days so please forgive me for not coming to you with a post of some sort. It’s just been super busy! But hey, No excuses right? My job has been really busy, I’ve been working out heavily, and just simply had a lot on my mind…
I’m happy to report though that I lost another pound! It seems like my weight loss is creeping by.. I know I would lose more if I cut back more, but I’ve cut back quite a lot, and my thing is, I’m trying to adopt a lifestyle I can live with. Not some crazy diet, that I won’t stick too.. So I’ve been cutting back, going to a simple shake in the morning.. I’m looking forward to starting Shakeology but for right now it’s Slim Fast until the Shakeology order comes in. I’ve been cutting back my portions, drinking lots of water and exercising at least 5 times a week. I’ve lost 4.5 so far, but would love to lose more! Ill keep you posted!!!!

Also, I’m trying to get more sleep. I think I’m doing okay in this department but there is always room for improvement. I try to get 8 hours of sleep but getting mostly 7. Sleep is so important! 

So are you living a healthy lifestyle? If so, what are you doing? I’m always looking for tips! Here are the tips I’ve come up with so far:

1. Never deprive yourself. Just cut back.. Depriving oneself causes you to be miserable and have horrible meltdowns (at least that’s what I think)

2.Discover New Foods- That’s what I’m working on! Trying to find foods that I’ve never had, and for those I’ve had but maybe haven’t loved so much,  I’m trying to discover them in a new light!

3. NO REFILLS– It might sound silly, but when it comes to my love for Sweet Tea, I know that due to the sugar content I just can’t drink as much as I want too! For that reason, I immediately say no to refills on some of my favorite sugary drinks. At least when I’m allowing myself to indulge. Now I’m drinking water, by all means I can have as much as possible!

4. Be Smart- You know what’s good for you and what isn’t! You know what works and what doesn’t! Keep those things in mind whenever choosing food to eat!

5. Stay focused and motivated! Whatever it takes!! I keep thinking, I need to get down to a healthy weight and I know that I can do it! If you keep yourself focused and motivated, it will be a bit easier to stay on track. We all have our days, and all we can do is try to have better days!

 

Those are my tips for now. I’m working on myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I know that there is a lot I could change about myself and I’m working to do so. What about you?

 

Until Next Time, Mrs. SPJ 🙂

    Thanks for sharing today. I hope you are doing ok. I will try and get more sleep, but you know how that is with me. Anyway glad to see you doing so well with the eating and sleeping. It makes us not want to work on our weight when we not seeing more results if we loose two pounds one week and none the next. We just have to stay focus because I guess the results will get better each day. Thank you!
