I HATE RESOLUTIONS.
Don’t get me wrong, I make them year after year. I figure that I’ve made approximately 50 resolutions or more in my time, and I’ve let about 45 of them leave me with the feeling of failure. Last year I made it a point to NOT call my changes resolutions but rather intentions. That didn’t work either.
THIS YEAR I REALIZE
It doesn’t matter WHAT I call them, it’s simply a matter of taking the first step to change. So without a ton of fanfare, my friend Lisa & I started a facebook group to help not only the two of us change throughout the year, but our online friends as well.
I CALLED IN THE TROUPS
Because I KNEW that I couldn’t do this alone. I have VERY unhealthy eating habits, and not only was the weight packing on, but my skin had a gray look to it, I had health/physical issues and most of all I had no energy. It’s difficult to break old habits. Right off the bat I’ve
1. Enlisted the help of Diet-to-Go – I LOVE good food (hence the excess pounds), and their diet delivery service offers FRESH food rather than frozen.
2. Called on motivational guru Pete Cohen – I need a little hand holding to stick with things when they get rough. I’ll have more about Pete soon.
3. Began a program to help cope – My last doctor’s visit ended in the question “What do you do to shut it off?” meaning, how do you relax and rejuvenate? He WROTE ME A PRESCRIPTION THAT SIMPLY SAID: YOGA. Killing 2 birds with one stone, I knew that my first step would be to begin doing simple yoga. Again, I’ll have more for you soon.
4. Walking – I now have the happiest miniature bull-terrier in South Florida. He LOVES going for walks. Mr. S and I have been taking time each day to walk together…as a family. It doesn’t feel like exercise, and I’m getting some great Florida sunshine right along with my workout.
Being a post-menopausal, champagne living, woman about town type – I’ve gotten used to good food. This Thursday I meet with Todd English (he’s making a “tasting” for me), Michelle Bernstein has cooked for me, etc. There are two things that I REALLY LOVE. Incredible food and lots of it.
The Diet-to-Go diet delivery service has the PERFECT program, whether you prefer a basic 1200 calorie (1600 calories for men) food plan, are a vegetarian, or are have decided to go low-carb. They cook your food and send it off FRESH each week. YES FRESH. This is my first time with a REAL diet delivery service (I’ve tried the frozen and shelf stable ones before), and I can tell (or show you) what a BIG difference it makes.
I LOVE NOT COOKING!
Especially when the food is homemade like this. My favorite is the 7-day a week, 3 meal a day program. WHY? Because I’d never bother to make myself something like apple pancakes (especially during the week), so I actually feel like I’m TREATING rather than depriving myself.
The volume of food that Diet-to-Go sends is INCREDIBLY satisfying. Not ONCE have I felt hungry.
The variety is enough to keep me happy – I go out to dinner OFTEN. In 3 days of Diet-to-Go I’ve had meals like Chicken Creole, Whitefish Parmesan, and Linguine Shrimp Alfredo. I could NEVER get bored of my diet eating like this.
I’m not saying it won’t be a struggle
That’s why I’ve set myself up for success this time. It’s only week #2 of the New Year, but I’m already 5 pounds lighter than I was last week, and I feel a WHOLE LOT BETTER. I’m eating healthy low calorie foods and taking care of myself both inside and out.
