Since last post its been two weeks. And I am feeling awesome!
Just in case you are reading this and missed out on what I am talking about, you can check it out here –> ✿◕‿◕✿
I had to come up with a name, title, description i wanted for these kind of posts, so from now on they will be know as Time For Change Entries.-
I didn’t want to add the word, diet, or fitness, or exercise or any of that since the real meaning is the journey and it involves so many things!
Like I said before I haven’t got much of a clue of what I am doing so I cant add a title to this.- All I am certain is that I need a change.-
Like I mentioned previously I am felling great!
Now so far I am just on the food part. Since my toddler was sick I couldn’t get out to test some exercise routines, so that will have to wait. Whats the hurry anyway right?
What I have been doing is the following:
* I cut down on Bread, Pasta,Cakes and pastries,Biscuits, Doughnuts, etc (yes, all that’s yummy in the world)
* No more cold cuts, hamburgers (store bought) or hot dogs.
* No more chocolate and sweets
Now one of my biggest problems is that I am a very anxious person, I cant stay still and I get the munchies (in a nervous sort of way) often, and since I stopped smoking when I learned I was pregnant, its been very,very,hard.-
A way I am dealing with this is that when I get into ” must have food” mode, is with simple cereal.- Plain cornflakes, no sugar. Pour a little bowl and have a couple of flakes at a time.
So far its been working great!
When I feel extreme lack of energy (remember that one starts cutting down on calories, of course you will get light headed with lower energy) I have some Trail Mix ready at hand.-
Now there are many points of views regarding the type of calories that these provide. I am just starting to read some articles, but one point in common is that depends what you add to your trail Mix, can result more or less calories. That’s why I make my own, since a lot of store bought are really packed with calories,and its more convenient since I can chose the seeds and nuts to my taste and needs.
I usually keep it simple and with no sugar-sweetened dry fruits.
When I do have the need to have something sweet ASAP, I found that Puffed Rice and Corn Bar treats are actually good!
I cant find an image for the ones they sell here in Diet Stores. But a pack a size of a tablet just has 90 calories aprox.
I have learned pretty much these past two weeks. I think that this way I am not seeing this a “diet experience” to lose, weight. But a way to “teach” myself new things and to live in a healthier way.-
Well so far this is what my two weeks have been like, in a couple of weeks i will come back to see what else is new!
Thanks for reading!
