Clean eating…. October 25, 2011

Filed under: Changes,clean eating,Lessons,Marriage,weight loss — tracye1 @ 6:48 PM

Day 2 of my “clean living” venture.  So far so good.  Though it IS Day 2.  I am queen of sticking to something for about a week or two and then it’s back to my wicked ways….THIS time, however, with hubby home I have an accountability partner.  So, that’s always good when one may reach for that Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream in the freezer. perhaps.

Oxygen magazine has a great “Off the Couch” publication with really good articles, very motivating.  Now, I don’t aspire to be a competitive bodybuilder or fitness model, but will be thrilled to be COMFORTABLE in my jeans this winter, to have more energy and to be healthier.  Here are a few things that are different “this time”:

  • Hubby’s home.  Statistically, with spousal moral support people do better at sticking to diet and exercise changes. Right?  Common sense says yes……..let’s go with that!!
  • I have a PLAN this week.  Each day, in fact!  There is a weight watchers saying, “If you fail to plan then plan to fail”.(also attributed to Ben Franklin, Winston Churchill, Carl W. Buechner, and Harvey MacKay–in varying versions)
  • My kids are on board.  H.U.G.E. Now to slowwwwwwly introduce them to more exciting vegetables, etc.
  • I’ve already been pretty consistent on my workout routine for the past month, time to add good nutrition.
Some things to still incorporate:   journaling what and when I eat.  Purging the “junk” from the house so as not to tempt me.  Incorporating the meals I am making to the entire family.  Baby steps.  You can only eat an elephant one bite at a time…
Phillipians 4:13  I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!
