I think it’s time.
I’ve been focused on preserving my physical well-being and developing some routine around structured exercise.
I’ve been cleverly denying curbing my bad dietary choices at the same time. Sure, challenging myself to cook at home versus eating out – which has become more of a necessity since tax time, too – but I’m still cooking more comfort food to soothe my emotional self than food that supports my entire self.
It’s time to focus on integrating diet into this hopscotch toward success in my exercise regimen I am currently on. I do feel better for the once weekly fit of exercise I get outside of my 6-9 miles walked at work daily…but that ain’t slimming the old silhouette, if you get my drift. I know a diet based more on lean protein and vegetables will improve that result. Further, those foods with their added latent results will probably mentally and physically stimulate more of a post-workday activity mindset.
I’ve been avoiding supplements to help reduce my body fat. I don’t want a crutch.
I’ve been stalwart in my resistance to far diets, whether it be a juice cleanse or going paleo.
I’ve been contemplating a return to a diet prescription an obnoxiously fit gym owner my age once gave me. He recommended only chicken and green veggies like broccoli after lunch…he’ll why not for lunch, too?
I’ve been glaring at my iced lattes, mentally preparing myself for a return to home made cold brew.
Making those moves would be a jolt of support toward my goals.
Ironically, I realized that diet regimen has been given a trendy and modern name: a sugar detox.
Plus, it’s a fairly stripped down version of a paleo diet, too.
So, starting Wednesday…three days of hardcore focus on this diet plan and the layering some different foods in while maintaining that base.
After all, what’s in a name, as long as it works for me?
