Life happens. We get it.
Maybe you can relate to this.
This past weekend you decided to do something about feeling like 'blah.' You were just sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. You were tired of feeling sickly, unhealthy, and tired of feeling like your carrying around a bit more than your comfortable.
So, you decided that THIS WEEK (or starting Monday... let's be real here) you were going to do something about it. I mean you used to be healthy, fit and trim so surely you can get right back there. Easy?
You hit the gym, go on a crash diet of yogurt, some almonds, maybe a few of those hundred calorie snack packs only to find that your body isn't dropping the fluff like it used to a few years ago. Frustrating!
After a week of living off rabbit food spending endless hours on the elliptical and not seeing any results, you end up yelling at yourself naked then going on a bender of ice cream and french toast and rationalizing to yourself that getting dropping a few pounds and being 'healthy' is just too hard and a waste of time anyways. Besides if you were healthy, you couldn't eat the chips and salsa and the pizza that you love... and that would just suck.
I mean having a lean stomach isn't THAT important to you, have you ever tried stuff crust pizza? (Rationalizing a bit hard here aren't we.)
I'm here to tell you that it's NOT your fault.
This happens to EVERYONE that is getting older. I don't mean older as getting your AARP card, but older as in you don't have as much free time anymore like you did in your 20's. You have kids, a mortgage, a boss, responsibilities and you've put yourself on the back burner during that time. You went from alcohol hangovers to FOOD hangovers... now it's almost hanging over your pants.
You remember how to work out, but things just don't feel the same anymore. Things are not as tight as they use to be, joints creak a bit more, you have a few old injuries, and MAYBE your metabolism is starting to slow down. (We were warned about this.)
Your body is different than what is was a few years ago and you're ready to make a change but just not sure where to start.
You wish that you could just have a plan of what to do, because if you have that plan, you're going to do it! Plus, just have someone tell you what you can and can't eat so that you can stop playing the "what food can I not eat today" guessing game.
If you can relate to ANY of that, I may have a solution for you...
