You see, life is great and it's needs to begin today! No more of the negative, when I'm thinner my life will begin! Today is a great day, and don't waste it. Life is short and fleeting!
Be your best mantra!
Here's some tips to healthy dieting. These babies MUST be followed to be successful:
1. (The most important!)-Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night!
"Earlier to bed, early to rise. That makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise!" (*Compliments of my wonderful mother!)
2. Drink as much water as you can!
When dieting try to aim for your body weight in ounces! 155.8 for me! (haha)
3. Eat breakfast.
For instance, I feel uneasy in the morning and don't like to. Because I'm just getting into this, I ate a nice clean light breakfast! 1/2 an orange, 1/2 an apple, and a bowl of Quaker Oatmeal with cinnamon. Mmm!
If you feel like you are not in-shape enough or that it may pain you, then go for a twenty minute walk. Keep upping the amount! Go twice a day! You need endorphins! They are your bodies natural drug!
5. Keep a food diary!
Make sure that you see the bad patterns, so you can fix them. Eat a bigger dinner or have a glass of milk or late night salad, if you are staying up late to do work in order to nix late night snacking and bingeing!
6. Plan Ahead!
Try to plan out what you are going to eat. Aim for 5 to 6 small meals a day or 3 meals and 2 snacks. Stick to healthy foods and make sure you are getting a range of carbs, fats, and protein. If you are a vegetarian, like me, then you must make sure you are following a vegetarian food pyramid. Planning is a sure-fire way to not mess up. If you are going out to eat look up the calories, fat, and carbs online or call ahead and ask what's healthy on the menu or what can be adjusted for you.
When we diet, we may be falling short of some of our must-have nutrients. In order to
make sure that we are getting everything we need take a multi vitamin. If you are a woman take
a calcium supplement. It's important to fight osteoporosis and other diseases that hit women!
