I have a secret:
I guess it's not really a SECRET but...I am really trying to be healthier. The last few year, basically since college ended, have been very poor, health-wise. I drink way too much pop and eat way too much stuff that I shouldn't. I also got in the habit of going to Starbucks and ordering possibly the worst drink ever (white chocolate mocha) EVERY SINGLE DAYYYY...that is so bad for me:( I weigh way too much and feel tired much of the time. I'm only 25. I shouldn't need to nap at 1 pm every day!
I think that it is ridiculous for me to assume that it is going to be easy to lose 40 pounds. I think it would be very hard on my body and my mental state to immediately, completely cut back on all things I have indulged in too much. In the last two weeks, I have been cutting back on my sugar intake. I have only been to Starbucks twice. I have been trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. I have also not had any rootbeer, which I drank nearly every day (sometimes several times a day). I have had gingerale, though. I have been making small changes that I think will be able to stick with.
These are the short term actions I plan on taking:
-Make a solid effort to exercise for at lest 30 minutes every day (including weekends)
-Reduce sugar (white table sugar=bad)
-Eat breakfast everyday.
I am telling people I know about this because I think it will help me. I'm not sure how it will help. Maybe knowing I have support? Adam is supporting me by doing the same things. He works out most days, doesn't really drink pop, and even though I know he loves me the way I am, he encourages me and helps me be better.
Does anyone have any tips/suggestions? I really need help.
