Today, I am on week 2 of my diet bet and I am going to my 2nd class of 12 weeks called Weigh to Wellness that my employer is offering free of charge. We will be learning about nutrition and different methods of fitness to assist in the weight loss process. There are prizes and there is a winner so of course this is the challenge for me. I must say, I am nervous but I am more motivated then I have been in awhile. Just yesterday I had to resist a gigantic chocolate cake, a tray of lovely cheese cubes and sausage, cookies, crackers, cokes, all of the things that are so good especially when they are free. Then when I got home last night and put my son to bed it was around 9:15 and I wanted to eat something. I resisted. I am proud of myself.
If you are currently eating healthy or trying to and you have to resist food and temptation everyday then I applaud you. This is not easy. At all. It is easier for me to run everyday than to not eat food. I’m sure I have mentioned this before. Why does food have to be a temptation? I do not drink alcohol (wine very, very rarely), I do not smoke, I do not do drugs. Why can’t I eat food that tastes delicious in the portion that is suggested and not gain weight? Why can’t those foods give me abs?
I’ll tell you why, because with everything in life, if you want it, you have to work for it. The work is not easy but the payoff will be. I do not feel that I have much to do, I mainly just need to tone up and drop about 10-15 pounds to make my neurologist smile and lower the dosage on my epilepsy medication. I do not see him again until February but I want to hit the goal before that. Last time I saw him I was suppose to have lost the weight and I did not. He is not concerned with my weight but if I want to lower the dosage than I have to lower the number on the scale. Ahh, math.
I have some recipes that I make regularly that are pretty healthy but I need some more. What are your healthy yet delicious recipes? I want to eat food that tastes amazing all while fueling my body in the healthiest possible way.
