January 6th- February 9th
For this 30 day+ period, I concentrated on eating the right foods. I walked a few miles a day, usually around the block at home. I took the steps instead of the elevator every chance I got.
I was really determined to show and prove to myself that I could do it on my own before going out and asking for help. I decided I was going to be positive in every aspect of my life. My family, friends, my work, everywhere. Remember, your attitude determines your altitude!
Basically, I ate like a health nut. And you know what? It took me only two weeks to get used to it. That’s it. Here’s a sample of what I would typically have during any given day.
A juice made by using The Nutri Bullet. This machine is easy to use and fantastic. Go get one. Now!
Every morning I would make a juice consisting of any combination of spinach, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, bananas, apples, oranges, flax seed, almonds and sometime non-fat Greek yogurt.
Low calories, energy boosting, natural. Good stuff.
A salad. With as many vegetables as I could pack in there, with a can of tuna or 6 ounces of chicken.
Apples, bananas, celery sticks, beef jerky, fat free popcorn, fat free cottage cheese. No more than 2 or 3 of these per day.
Steak, Chicken, or fish. Sweet or baked potatoes, greens, and a salad.
Coffee, water, juice, Green tea.
That’s it folks. I cut out pizza, most dairy, pasta, bread, and butter. The only thing I really, really missed was the pizza and beer. I tracked my calories at www.myfitnesspal.com it was of great help. It kept me line and provided me with support and motivation. Use this site; it will be your best friend.
I arrived at the Soza clinic on Saturday morning February 9th, 2013 and ready for my next step on my journey. I weighed in at 248lbs. Motivated and ready for Phase II! Take a look.
