“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” ~Mike Murdock
I’ve made a lot of changes to my eating habits since October 28th. I drink more water. I gave up drinking diet pop (or soda) completely. I eat smaller portions. I only eat when I’m hungry, not so that I don’t get hungry. I walk more to help increase my metabolism (although not as much as I should). But the biggest change I have made to my daily eating habits is what I decide to put in my body. Breakfast used to be this:
Followed by this for lunch:
I shudder when I think of how many bad calories I was feeding my body every day.
Now, my breakfast is Greek yogurt and string cheese or a bowl of Cheerios. 1 serving each and that’s enough. My lunches are sliced turkey breast and raw veggies or a grilled chicken salad. And that’s enough. Dinners are the same (because Marathon Man cooks, I don’t), but my portions are 1/3 to 1/2 of what they used to be. And that’s enough.
I’ve lost 40 pounds so far since October 28th. But, that’s not enough. I want to lose 50 more by December 31st of this year.
Now it’s time to focus on another change I can make to help spur that along.
Change is good. Results are better.
Live. Laugh. Love.
