My never-ending health and wellness journey is taking a more “traditional” turn these days.
🌸 I have followed most non-conformist plans: Weigh Down, Thin Within, etc. Always gained back.
🌸 I have followed restrictive plans: Atkins, LCHF, Trim Healthy Mama, Paleo. Always gained back.
🌸 I tried fads: Fiber Trim, Plexus, intermittent fasting, lemon cleanses, smoothies. Always gained back.
Truth be told, I did not change my mindset. Oh, maybe for a little while. Not for good.
Now is the time. Mindset changing. And the first thing I need to reset is the fact that I must count calories.
Yes, I can workout like a fiend, be oh so self-righteous about water, buy all the kale, but in the end if I eat too much, I am eating TOO MUCH!!!
This will take lots of prayer and persistence. This time, I am going to take the plunge and do what I haven’t done since the early 1990’s. I’m going to follow Weight Watchers.
I gave up on WW way back when because it was super frustrating to lose so slow when everyone else (especially those men in the group) were dropping like crazy. Either my fluffiness likes to hang around a while, or I’m doing something wrong.
It’s always the same thing: I eat too much. I am a HUGE emotional eater. I need to reprogram my heart and mind towards food, and for part of that I’m going to jump into WW.
I will keep up with the great, short workouts available at Faithful Fitness. Kristen is so encouraging as she leads the 15-30 minute sessions, always starting with Scripture. Also kerping up with my own push up routine and weekend walking.
For the heart, I’ll be joining back in with Faithful Finish Lines as they unwrap their brand new program in September! I am super excited about it. Sara and Becky have been busy working hard to make the new program the best yet. You can join their free Facebook group for updates and encouragement.
Here’s a link to the Faithful Finish Lines course Victory Over Emotional Eating. I am going to go back through this to get prepped.
And, here’s Sara’s latest tool kit, specifically for Weight Watchers. There are 14 resources to print up or read on your device, recipes, etc.
I am putting together a freebie that will be available the end of June. A 30 Day Push Up Challenge!! More on that soon.
Till next time, be blessed
