Trying to get back on track from some very bad eating habits....well, let's just say it isn't easy. But...I've decided to just take baby steps. A blogging friend, Ms. Donna, at Comin' Home, and also at Gettin' Thin Together posted a list of "diet rules" several months ago and they had kind of been stuck somewhere in my head. Recently, I looked them up...printed them off....and hung the list on the fridge.
· Rule 1: Don’t eat after
· Rule 2: Exercise 30 minutes a day
· Rule 3: Drink lots of water
· Rule 4: Switch to Low-fat Dairy
· Rule 5: No EMOTIONAL EATING
· Rule 6: Ask Am I REALLY HUNGRY?
· Rule 7: No Soda
· Rule 8: No Alcohol
· Rule 9: No fried foods
· Rule 10: No trans fats
I like these rules....because they are simple and easy to follow!!! I can already tick off several of them....but plan to incorporate the others into my daily life....taking baby steps!!! I know me....and if I try an "all or nothing" approach....then, it just ain't a gonna work!!! Since I can already mark off Rule #4, #8, and #9 (for the most part) ....this week my goal will be no eating after 7:30 in the evening....and to drink lots of water
(weight divided by 2=ounces per day).
Now....that Rule #7 is gonna be the killer....
....how in the world will I go without a Diet Mountain Dew?!?!?
Can you say....withdrawals!!!
How about you?
Do you have a game plan to get back on track?
I would love to hear some of your "tricks"....
....and also any "treats" you might want to share!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
