I know, it really is such a cliche thing to say, but I kind of feel like I’m going to make each day for the next three weeks the last time I will ever be that weight again. Even if the scale movement is only by fractions, all progress is good progress. I just have to not get frustrated with myself and slack off.
Today is the first day of a new, very structured diet plan. So far, it’s keeping me feeling pretty up. The idea is to eat five small, high protein meals at 3 hour intervals to keep your metabolism up through out the day. The first meal is the ‘biggest’ in that it has the most carbs. But let’s be honest. It’s the only one with the only carbs in it. The rest of the day consists of small meals packed with protein, fiber, and vitamins. Then after work, I immediately go home, eat my fourth meal (I’m not kidding), drink more water, and then go to meet my personal trainer at the gym. This is just today.
Tomorrow will be the same, except at the end of the day, I’ll go to the gym on my own time. This has become my favorite part of the day because I always end my workouts with about half an hour of yoga. I seriously never thought I would like it. Ever. But now that I’ve been doing it for a few months, I can definitely feel a difference. I like it, a lot.
I’m just going to keep chugging a long with this diet and exercise regime and see what happens when I go back to class again on April 12th. If people can see a difference, than it was a success. 🙂
