I’ve been using the “I’m a student” excuse not to gym and not eat healthy for too long now. No more. I was looking through pics and I want to go back to being relatively fit and eating healthy. Too keep me motivated I’m writing it all down here.
I always start off with the best intentions, follow through for a couple of days, even weeks then spiral back to my old habits. It just leaves me feeling bad and crappy about myself. Now I’m going to make both workout plans and eating plans and I’m going to stick to them! I’m actually excited.
Going on Monday to go sign up at Virgin Active in Claremont. Been a few times with my bro [snuck in hehe] and it seems pretty cool there. As far as eating, I’m not big on fast food, or junk food so that’s not a problemo. I need to drink more water though! And [you won’t hear this from many people] I need to eat more. I eat like a bird, and apparently that’s not good for you. So I’ll try eat more. I love fruit but not a huge veggie fan. So I’m on a mission to figure out a way to cook vegetables in a way that I’ll eat them. Other thing I need to cut down on is coffee, and well we at beverages, apparently Hunters Dry isn’t that great to drink. Whisky should be my drink of choice [eww!]. I’m sure I can find some sort of compromise. All this I’ve just heard from people, I need to research this more properly anyways.
Low calorie foods is what I need to be focusing on, so basically these foods:
I like most of those, and I guess I can force myself to eat the ones I don’t like, except what the stuff is Cantaloupe and Chicory?!
I also found this cool eating plan on the Shape magazine website that I wanna try. Here
Monday starts my Healthy living pattern. Yes I know I could start tomorrow, but I’m one of those people that need to start new things on a Monday or the 1st of the Month. Don’t know why but hey.
My healthy living plan..you see it all flows:
My biggest obstacle is going to be sticking with this. I know I can and I WILL. Positive thoughts. If you see me slacking, remind me ok? Ok!
I’m going to print this picture up and put it by my desk.
So Project Healthy Living commences. If anyone wants to join me on my mission, let me know. We can encourage each other and give each other much needed kicks in the ass. It’s always better when you have someone to motivate you. Will keep you updated.
