The diet is progressing. Each week I up the ante a bit more. Each week I encourage myself to add something know exercise-wise or alter my eating in a positive way. Small steps. Slow steps.
I won’t win any awards for my rate of losing weight. But you also won’t see me stressing out over it either.
Last week I changed my breakfast food to a plain oatmeal with a little bit of diced dried fruits. Okay it is not the most interesting of foods. It doesn’t scream “EAT ME!!” but it gets the day off onto a good path. The days I eat that in the morning are the days that I am much better behaved for the rest of the day. Over the past 2 weeks there have been a few days (like today) where I didn’t eat that for breakfast. And know what? The rest of the day was a wash with the diet. The hunger pangs were worse. I shook sometimes. I ate higher calorie foods. So I guess what you have for breakfast really does influence the rest of your day.
This week I am going to add in some yoga. My back has been bothering me so I know the yoga will help with that. Plus it is an exercise I actually enjoy.
And then next week I get to start the cancer-exercise study with UPenn. I can’t wait to find out what group I am in!! I am very optimistic that this will be a great turning point in my physical fitness!!!
