It made me cringe in December to think about the first day of the new year approaching and all of the over-enthusiastic women that would be soon flocking the local gym. SO, instead of renewing that gym membership, I began my STRETCH & EAT LESS Diet.
The results come FAST.
Here’s the scoop:
1. Skip SUGAR in your coffee
2. Do Simple Yoga Stretches at Night
3. Eat Veggies Raw for Lunch, Cooked for Dinner
4. Choose Lean Meats (chicken & pork)
5. Don’t Starve yourself, Portion yourself –
6. Park Further Away at Store/Work & Take the Stairs!
7. Do 40-60 crunchies before Bed
A Breakdown of My Past Three Days:
<Sunday night (Jan. 3rd), I began doing simple yoga stretches. The next morning I would begin my new diet. I also hopped on the digital scale to document my weight.>
Monday (Jan. 4th), I started off the day with an oatmeal breakfast* and a cup of coffee fat free half&half and NO SUGAR.
***Eating breakfast is crucial to weight loss and gets your metabolism going and helps BURN calories throughtout day.***
Salad w/ Olive Oil Vinegarette for lunch, Hummus & 10 Pita chips for snack, Eggplant & Chicken w/ Tomatoes for dinner, Sugar Free pudding for snack
Weighed myself at night: 2.5 lbs DOWN!
Tuesday (Jan. 5th) Cheerios for Breakafast, Raw Veggies for Lunch, Apple for snack, StirFry for dinner, Sugar Free Pudding for Snack
Weighed myself in morning: 4.5 lbs Total DOWN!
Wednesday (Jan. 6th) Cheerios for Breakfast, Yogurt & a whole Kiwi for Lunch, lean porkchop, brocolli & 1/2 rice for dinner, tortillas & fresh salsa (literally home made salsa) for snack
Weighed myself at night: 6 lbs Total DOWN!
And now it’s already Thursday and I am feeling more motivated than ever to get these 15 pounds off!!!!
