As many of you know, I am a flight attendant and unfortunately as much as the job has its benefits it has its down falls. One of which is keeping track of your health. Travelling the world and living on different time zones can really take a toll on your body especially when your eating and sleeping habits are compromised. Over the past six months I have watched my body go from naturally fit to perhaps the most unhealthiest state Iv’e been. Enough is enough! I have tried Insanity, a crazy work out video you can do in the comfort of your own home. T25, the more compact version of that at home work out routine and finally gave in and bought myself a gym membership. Why? The at home thing just wasn’t working for me. I need people, competition and even a little bit of discomfort to truly push myself!
Folks, Iv’e been pushing myself daily to just GO to the gym because once I am there I will work out no issues. However, I haven’t seen any positive results! Perhaps I am not meant to lose the weight? I am so confused! I wish I had someone who could explain to me more about health and nutrition! I have lost close to 6 lbs. Yay! Right? In exchange I have been blessed with these awful purple stretch marks on my inner thighs and my upper hips! What to do what to do! I figure on factor may be the food that I am eating therefor I have jump started my journey to a healthier diet by doing a 3 day diet.
A 21 day fix, 90 day challenge and every other type of long diet seems a tad intimidating to me. My biggest problem is portion control. I have cut out sodas but I haven’t mastered chips or sweets. I can’t not have an entire bag! I find it so easy to down all my junk food and unfortunately I’m the culprit! I buy these things in small amounts, I go away for a week and return home to the same snacks and I buy more. On a blue day I tend to devour the entire pantry. So the easiest for me at the moment would be something short, sweet and not too painful.
I have decided to try a 3 day diet which consist of a chemical breakdown that helps kick your metabolisms into shape (so to speak) Many patients under going heart surgery are put on similar diets to help shed some water weight. Some call this the AHA 3 Day Diet or even Cleveland Diet. I have altered it to preference will keeping portions under control. I will post all my progress and how I spice up the prepared meals.
Stay tuned as I try my best to kick start my SUCCESSFUL weight lose challenge. I will be working out regularly during my 3 day Fix and my off days as well! I hope this is something that will perhaps help you guys.
