|I fell in love with mixed greens and|
did a lot of fresh veggies (that's not canned corn, friends)
and paired them with regular stuff like beans
and lean meats/chicken
In the end I lost 11.5 lbs through hard work, sweat and a healthy diet.
I did not starve myself. I always had a full breakfast, with 2 egg whites, a roll and a smoothie...okay okay, and coffee. I had a fresh lunch and would keep dinner as light as possible, without starving myself.
I did not go to the gym 3 times a day. I went once a day and did what my body could manage in the time I have before work.
I cut out snacking, consumed more fruits and vegetables, more raw foods.
I challenged myself to make salads that were fun and exciting, because I have always had a love/hate relationship with salads.
I did not get as much sleep as I should have, and this has always been my downfall, but I still felt better.
I did it for myself really - to win was always a goal as well but really, I knew it was necessary. So cheers!
