After a frustrating week of weight gain I was able to successfully lose another 2.2 pounds this week. The strange thing is that I didn’t really feel as though I had improved over the prior week. I guess it goes to show that feelings are fickle. Total weight loss so far since my original weigh in on 1/20 is 10.6 pounds. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
I have continued the P90X/Insanity combo. I am complete the P90X lifting DVD’s on M/W/F. I am doing Insanity cardio interval on T/TH/S. My Sunday is dedicated to yoga. During the evenings I walk or do a walk/run interval thing on the treadmill. I am convinced that eating correctly is the key and that a I can’t out train a poor diet.
I was talking with a relative that has adult onset diabetes, high blood pressure, and had heart surgery about 2 years ago. She is interested in “trying” some of my healthier recipes. I spent a few hours on Monday (it was holiday for me!) and came up with a few for her to give a shot.
I am convinced that anyone can eat healthy. It takes some effort but anything worth doing takes effort. The big thing is having a legitimate why. Ask yourself why do you want to make a change? The internal why must be bigger than external obstacles and circumstances. As for the relative, high blood pressure and diabetes are both killers. I don’t know of anyone that WANTS to die of self-inflicted diseases. Why do you want to change? I want to live and enjoy kids, grand kids, great-grand kids, etc.
What about you? Do you have a why that is bigger than a greasy double cheeseburger? I hope so.
