My very own struggle to acceptance

Think Diet:)

My pants fit me so well!.  I bought more new pairs of jeans right before I started my diet .

 Well, now because they are loose!  Not falling off but loose- it’s what I wanted!

Why am I writing all of these things?  Is it to try and convince you to dieting?  Absolutely No.  Is it to boast about how good I I feel and look?  Nope  Is it to be satisfied when I step on the scale everyday?  Of course:)

I preapare salad every week with strawberries, lstraettuce or spinach and Ricotta Cheese, even those who    usually do not eat salads might like the idea . The dressing I make:

two tablespoons of olive oil 
one teaspoon of lime juice 
2 tablespoons of liquid honey
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
Salt to taste

Not finished run

The fact that I have neglected my regular exercises  for last weeks will certainly be a factor, but the main reason is my diet, i have been consuming less carbohydrates, there isn’t as much glucose stored in my muscles, that is why I didn’t complete my run

If you know my blog, you’ll know I’m not a fun of low carb diets or or any diet, i think is a metter of healthy lifestyle.

Don’t give up!

I think that we tend to compare ourselves to others. I am in aware of people who lose almost 100 pounds in a year but I also read about people who lose much less in a year. It is the strenght to struggle even when it’s bad – it doesn’t matter how much time it takes to lose weight.

 Don’t compare yourself to other people, we are all individuals and that includes the ability to lose weight faster or slower.

 Sometimes you can even gain weight while trying to lose it, but it does not mean that it’s not the end of your plan. Be strong!. You can do it

My favorite sandwich!

Image

I woke up today early in the morning why? I wanted to make sure to have time for breakfast and prepare a veggie sandwich for lunch. Yesterday I bought a  piece of smoked salmon.  I remembered to use a whole grain bread,  I add my favorite vegetables like tomato, lettuce , chive , or avocado, this bomb of healthy fats will help me survive to a late dinner!

Too busy to be slim!

Image

We work so hard. Watching kids, shopping plus housework, hitting work deadlines etc, we are so busy that we often forget about taking care of ourselves. What happens? We slowly begin to lose energy, gain weight, emotionally eat and feel useless.

The truth is, It’s not going to be better with your time. You have to take care of house, kids and work, so it’s a moment to learn how to take care of yourself. What does it mean? It’s time to plan ahead.

In order to stay healthy, fit and energetic all you have to do is  plan.

 

If you don’t think it’s so important or easy,try me. There are 4 easy steps to do it  You will see the difference after  1 week

Drink 8 hydrating drinks a day.

Limit yourself to one coffee daily and opt for green tea.

Exercise a minimum of three times per week. It doesn’t matter if it’s walking at fast pace, push ups or hitting the treadmill. As th

Don’t eat grain products after 2pm. Ten eat vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, nuts and seeds.

Wake up a little bit ealier than anyone else to stretch. It literally changes your day.

Don’t forget! Try to enjoy your life. When speaking with people in their 80s or 90s, they always say how they miss the “busy times”. 

Forget about elevator!

Why in the heck would you not take the stairs?! OK, if you carry million groceries oryou are ill, It’s OK, but other than that, there’s absolutely no excuse to take the escalator. When I was on vacation, I had a  50 pound suitcase and I  used the stairs. Since I I didn’t go for a gym, it was the great workout.

Diet and happiness

I liked to pretend that healthy lifestyle will transform me into a better person. A newer version of myself. A someone that doesn’t stay in her pajamas until noon, has the energy all the time, i always assume, that dieting would make me a complete person. Make all things right. It was dellusion.

Those steps are real for me:

step 1: don’t run away from feelings. write it down if you need to.

step 2: binge less. stop feeling guilty .

step 3: do yoga to feel happy.

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 eggs (Depending on size, but you can’t mess this up. Don’t over think it.)
  • 1 cup cooked spaghetti squash (think leftovers!)

  • 1-2 oz goat cheese is optional if your plan allows for this
