Greetings! I missed my Monday yesterday. Here’s to Tuesday! So, I give all sorts of advice on staying fit and healthy and losing weight etc…. I’ve been talking diets with several of my friends lately. It’s not easy to keep going day after day consciously thinking about eating healthy. I’m impatient when it comes to losing weight. I have LOVED the BURST CYCLE DIET. I can lose 5 pounds in 4 days and I feel much better. This is what I’ve been eating lately:
- Protein shake (1 banana, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 T. natural peanut butter, handful of spinach or kale, ice and water)
- Turkey sandwich (2 slices of whole wheat bread, turkey, 1 slice cheese (provolone or laughing cow), lettuce, tomato, pickles, honey dijon mustard)
- ZONE bar and fruit (apple or pear)
- Chicken and veges (brocoli, cauliflower, carrots, peppers, or a big salad)
I drink a full glass of water with every meal and more throughout the day. I also drink one EMERGE drink in the day. I don’t know if it does anything, but it’s something different.
I only follow this diet 3 days at a time. On the off days, I still eat healthy but I add more calories.
O.K. The only way to eat like this brings me to my #1 weight loss tip! SLEEP!!!!!! I have been so sleep deprived lately my husband thinks I need to see a doctor 🙂 I fall asleep in the car ALWAYS, except when I’m driving 🙂 On Sunday during the Super Bowl I snuggled into the couch while everyone was yelling at the t.v. and only woke up for the half time show. Yesterday, I was equally as tired and I wanted to eat all day. It really has a HUGE impact on weight loss. If you don’t get 7-8 hours of sleep every night, you will suffer. I know from experience. Sooooo, I’d rather miss a workout than miss my sleep these days. I guess that means I’m OLD? However, a run in the fresh air does bring me happiness and energy*. Those are hard to miss.
Here are a few cute pictures! My kids are learning from my example!
And a sweet picture with the kids and the 2 dogs. I am not a dog lover. I have 2 dogs out of the goodness of my heart!! You won’t see my blubbering over how much I love my dogs, but we were a little sad yesterday when our schnauzer almost died. She’s doing better now and I think she’ll live!!! Everyone is much happier! Enjoy your Day!
Music for the day! Classic 90’s country. Love the hair! I’m listening to a few spanish workers in my house. It’s fun to pick out what they are saying! I wish I remembered more.
