Fitness and weight loss confessional
If you do not like reading about fitness and weight loss go ahead and leave this page immediately. I know I write about a variety of topics that appeal to all different kinds of people, so I just wanted to warn those who are expecting something about sports that you will not find it on this post.
I love working out. Most people reading this already know that about me. It's a huge priority in my life. Right now it all of my close friends are on a fitness and weight loss kick. I would just like say it is so much easier to achieve fitness and weight loss goals with the support of those around you.
Anyway, I thought I'd throw that out there because I feel like this topic is something that most people don't really talk about openly.
I recently did Weight watchers for almost three months and I lost 15 lbs. It was effective, however when I was on the program I didn't feel like I was treating my body very well. I was more concerned with keeping my points down that I cared less about what I was putting into my body.
Right now, I'm making sure I am taking better care of my body with what I'm putting into it and what I'm choosing to eat. I want to make sure I'm getting the protein (despite my lack of meat eating, I do eat it occasionally but not typically) my body needs to fuel my workouts.
I just want to say that I feel great. I was eating my usual snack of carrots and hummus and I was so happy. It tastes amazing and it is great for my body. I'm trying to cut back on processed foods and I can feel the difference.
I'm looking forward to making more delicious meals for my body.
So I want to leave you with my current favorite resource for delicious healthy recipes The Edible Perspective and The Fitnessista.
