So. It’s been almost two weeks since I have made some major changes. Good changes, but hard ones.
But this is something only I can control. Nobody else. And once I realized this, that I have the power to manipulate my body, I have to admit, I may have become a little OCD about my new endeavor.
Eating clean, calorie counting, and exercising.
It’s hard. Really fucking hard.
But it’s working. What I am doing is working.
In nearly two weeks, I have lost six pounds. I did not measure myself, but I will start doing this also. Six pounds.
In nearly two weeks:
I haven’t eaten anything out of a box or a can (besides oatmeal). Eating clean only.
I have exercised daily, incorporating aerobics, weights, and cardio on appropriate days with a schedule I have made up.
I’ve been counting everything I consume (which is super easy thanks to the app My Fitness Pal) and decreased my caloric intake which was a little bit out of control previously.
I’ve been only eating fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and protein. I’m still eating a few carbs a day, but I have switched to whole grain/ancient grain breads and pitas.
I’ve been trying to eat breakfast. And I really hope my body gets used to this idea, because it seems like I can’t handle anything solid for about three hours after I wake up. But I’m trying.
I’ve been taking a few supplements to help along the way as well. After doing some reading, I now take calcium, vitamin d, omega 3s and 3 PGX tables with my morning green tea and womens multivitamin.
Oh, and drinking green tea and water by the gallon. As much as I can handle. I’ve been doing about 4 cups of tea with about 5 or 6 cups of water a day, including the water for my workouts.
Ive bought low calorie/fat free versions for most everything I eat, and invested in one hour a day for my workouts. Me time. I am currently doing weights about five times a week with specific areas of the body in mind, and cardio/aerobics I try to do everyday.
And I am six pounds closer to my goal weight.
