So last Monday I was pretty bummed following my appointment. I’ve done well this week to get some extra exercise in and be careful about what I’m eating. I haven’t devoured a bunch of junk like I usually do, although I did chow down on some awesome carrot cake sandwich cookies I found at Publix. I allowed myself the little splurge after a week of being good. Not sure if it has made any difference as I don’t typically weigh-in until Sundays.
Anyway, I’m super excited about this new plan I’m starting. It’s not a diet, it’s similar to what I was doing when I was counting calories, only it’s looking at quantities of food in a different way. I’ll go into more detail after I’ve completed the first week and have a bit more to share. It’s going to be challenging, but I feel like it’s going to be great, too.
I have a great coach, and I’m not even certain how it came about exactly, but we connected on the subject and boom! A plan was born. A plan I feel good about, which is exactly what I needed. I’m already feeling motivated by the group, and I haven’t even officially started yet. The science behind it seems pretty simple, which is what I like. And what I appreciate most is that the nutrition aspect is something I can keep up with while I’m stuck being a lump after surgery, so yay for that!
2018 will be a year of positive change for me! <— New mantra.
