Goals are the best way attain a healthy weight and lifestyle and I am committed to it! I am consciously doing more now than I have in my life to live well and I'm getting results!
I now eat a plant based diet with occasional grain and meat. Dairy is no longer an option.
One month ago, my belly sat in my lap when I would sit. Now it's gone! In one month! I can hardly believe how easy it was!
All I did was eliminate the foods that were not nutritious from my diet! When I examine a snack or a meal, I now ask, what can this do to support my cells?
I also hiked up my water intake and enjoy raw foods such as nuts, fruits, salads and veggies. I have eliminated olive oil and will be adding coconut oil to my meal plans (thank you FullaBella!)
The more I study about things like the consumption of olive oil, the more I realize I bought into everything I was told by a high profit food industry whose agenda has nothing to do with health.
My exercise has been centered around my core. I do crunches mostly, and surprisingly they have become more and more fun to do. When I first began them, I couldn't even connect my brain with my gut muscles because they hadn't been used!
I have to get my cardio in gear. I get out of breath just thinking about it, but I know with continued daily effort, I can do it!
I am finding out what I like to do in life more now than ever. My weight was my constant enemy. Now it's my friend and it feels GREAT!!!!
