My goal is to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks! this is Day 2. thank you for joining me!
My intention is to post 3 times a week. As we are starting, it will be a bit more frequent, to help get us into a routine. I will not post a “Diet”. If following a specific diet helps you, then by all means follow it! But remember, a “diet” is usually a short term solution. When the diet is over, we may fall back into old patterns and regain the weight and lose some healthy muscle tone if we stop exercising too! We are in this for the long term! The goal is more than losing a few pounds! The goal is to work towards a healthy balance of good food, moving more, and feeling better!
We will discuss choices. We can choose to have fruit and veggies at each and every meal. After all it's mid summer, and lots of goodies are in season here in the Midwest! It's a perfect time to try new foods and new ideas for old faves. We will choose lean protein and whole grains. We may even enjoy chocolate, or ice cream or frozen custard, in moderation! Because we all enjoy a treat sometimes and learning to enjoy good quality food, savoring the aroma and texture and flavor, is an important step on this journey.
We may even discover that a beautifully balanced meal is a treat. and a balanced lifestyle is definitely a treat.
