Yes, one of my obstacles is that I tend to get realllllly motivated to do something, go gung-ho, muck up or re-neg on committment and then it all just flops on its proverbial behind!
Probably a lot of people could identify with that game!
Anyway, sigh. Gained a kilo this week .
Im putting into practice a method I have made up for myself and have stuck with it 2 days so far.
It's simple and I dont have to think too much about it, what Im going to eat, that is. Im having a fresh fruit breakfast, salad lunch and vegetable dinner. No wheat, no milk except except skim in coffee and am now using sweetners in my tea and coffee, no other dairy, no sweets and minimal oil only for stir-frying vegies. And heaps of water.
Im going to do this for two weeks, take multi-vitamin capsules, and then slowly build on it, bringing back other foods into it and making the recipes more interesting.
I just feel I need something really simple at the moment to stick to. I know this seems like just another crash course. But it's different because it isnt something I got motivated about or excited about, just resigned to for now. I dont want to have to think too much about it. Just a simple regime. When I get hungry, I just have some fruit or some tofu or a few nuts or raw vegies.
I *am* getting hunger pains, but like Oprah's trainer (allegedly) said " Honey, those aren't hunger pains, they're fat-burning pains!"
And I dont intend to do it any longer than for 2, maybe 3 weeks.
Been walking quite a lot the last 2 days.
