Sorry I missed posting yesterday, typical of a Friday it got really busy. I’ll try not to let it happen again.
Month 1 is over and although I lost 15lbs, I thought the first month would go better. My bride, Jodi, keeps reminding me that we are doing this in real life, real time. Unlike shows like the Biggest Loser, where people learn the skills they need to live a healthier lifestyle, they also have the luxury of leaving the real world for a while and submersing themselves in a ‘diet boot camp!’
I don’t have that luxury, and I’m not convinced it would be a good thing regardless.
Whatever excuses I give myself, I know I can do better. I know I can stick to a better exercise plan. I believe the Insanity program I was doing was also setting me up to fail. My body realistically isn’t ready for that vigorous a work out. I need to start off with something simpler, but the key is, to start something. Also, although I cut out fast food and coke, I’ve pretty much kept everything else in my diet, but have eaten smaller portions. I think I need to consider cutting some more of my bigger cravings out as well, like bread. I have been eating wheat and multigrained breads, but still eating too much of them. I am going to try to stick to 2 pieces a day max.
So what now I ask? A new mindset and determination. Lets see what happens next.
