I really believe I probably could have lost more had I not splurged the first week. It was hard getting into a “healthy eating” state of mind.
My regimen? I’m doing the Low Carb thing to get my started…slowly adding more carbohydrates to my diet. Mostly eggs for breakfast, salads, fishes and chicken with some kind of veggie for dinner.
Now that I’m two weeks in, it’s easier to make wiser choices. Cottage cheese and canteloupe for breakfast, still on salads, chicken, and fishes.
Oh! & I had this major craving for PIZZA the other day (I don’t even really like pizza that much. Thank you, Aunt Flo) So I found this Low Carb Pizza recipe that’s A-MAZING! If you’d like the recipe, just let me know :)
& now that I have the wiser choices thing down & will power (for the most part), I’m adding in an exercise program. I listed “The Starter’s Exercise Plan” earlier on here, so I’m doing that BUT I’m also adding a running plan. I’ve never been a runner unless it was for sports or I was running to-from something…but now I’m making it a habit. I’ve also listed a “Couch to 5K” plan too. Oh man, I think I can actually do this!
Loves & best wishes for all!
