Just a few things that I learned at my Dr's visit a few weeks ago where I asked him to address the fact that I am having a hard time losing weight.
- Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Don't skip on this. It'll help you feel full and also flush your system. Water gives you healthier looking skin. Believe me.... water is a good thing! And if you're like me and you have any of those plastic tumblers around that Walmart sells in the summer months, one of those equals 3 servings of water...I measured it. So gulp, gulp, gulp away.
- Try to get in 30 minutes of exercise each morning. Whether you walk, jog, ride a bike...but 30 minutes! Every day... no holidays or weekend breaks allowed. This helps you to do two things: You'll get your exercise out of the way for the day AND you're metabolism will get a kick start that will help you throughout your day.
- Try to evenly spread out your meals. Right now I'm living by the 7/12/6 idea. That means, I have breakfast at 7, lunch around 12 and then at 6, we have dinner. Of course, I have to adjust this schedule on school days and nights, but so far, it seems to be working for me.
And there you have it - Slacker Tips for Dieting. LOL That sounds funny to me. But apparently this is working...my favorite (means most comfortable) blue jeans are getting baggy. I can feel the changes in my body... but I'm not weighing myself until the end of the month. I don't want to jinx it and become a weighing-obsessed momster.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Tell someone how much you love them...it's something we all love to hear.
