So here I am back in the 160s. I have been doing T25 exercises from Beachbody for the last few months, but have not made the commitment to change my eating habits. I have more energy from the workouts, but I am not seeing big results because I am still eating junk. But, I want to eat healthy for the long run. I want to know that I can be healthier and feel good even when life gets super busy (as it will as soon as it is August with the new school year). I want to be one of those people that enjoy eating fruits and veggies and see it as fuel for my body. I am trying to change my mindset and make it a lifelong life change, not just for a few months.
I am starting with doing the 3 Day Refresh from Beachbody. Today is day 1. No meat or breads for 3 days (not eating bread or bad carbs is a tough thing for me!). I am hoping that this will kick start my new mindset. After the 3 Day Refresh I am going to move into the 21 day fix. My focus there will be food portions and finding new recipes for healthier versions of things I love to eat. I do not want to deal with counting calories. If I am eating for my health and not for my weight, well, hopefully everything else will just fall into place. Though I cannot help but check in on my weight, it is not the end all of my journey. My starting point for the 3 day refresh is 162:
I cannot wait to see the changes in my body after these 3 days, then after the 21 Day Fix. I am hoping to keep myself busy this weekend so the foods I love and cannot eat are not on my mind ;)
