It has now been eight days since I started my healthier nutrition plan. I have managed to keep on track and I am feeling great.
I have been eating healthier, including plenty of fruit and vegetables.
I have now also started to include excercise into my daily routine. I have only been doing this for the last couple of days so I am feeling a little stiff and tight in some muscles but I am pushing through it and carrying on with my excercise plan. No pain, no gain after all.
I have found it so easy to do all this. I have even made it easier on myself by doing meal prep so I have my lunches and some dinners all prepped in advance. So it is even easier when I have been working all day and feel tired in the evening but can still get the nutrition I need.
So its only day two but i feel like i should put another post about my healthy lifestyle changes. i still haven’t started the full treatment plan i am going to be working on in order to become healthier and ultimately lose some weight.
Even without being at this point i have found myself being more aware of what i am going to eat. i am wanting to eat more healthier items, checking what is actually in products and whether they are good for me to eat or if they are really bad to have in your diet. i am still trying to work up to consuming two litres of water a day but i am definetely drinking more than i was just a few days ago. today i only managed to consume one litre of water but i am happy with this as i am still working my way up.
Just by drinking more water i am feeling a bit better generally within myself. i was never aware how not drinking water and keeping hydrated would affect my day to day life. if this is the outcome from just drinking more water i can’t wait to start on the rest of my plan and see the overall outcome for everything.
I will continue to update you on my progress as i go along.
Today i made the decision to change my lifestyle and make it healthier and more beneficial for myself. I have made this decision for several reasons, firstly so that i have more energy, secondly to ultimately lose the weight that i can’t seem to shift and fell better about myself, and lastly it is the first step in my preperations for me to go travelling. I am not planning to go travelling for about a year which gives me plenty of time to be in better shape for my trip.
I am going to do regular posts about how i am getting on with the changes, documenting improvements i have noticed or any difficulties i have had. i am going to share all the facts about what i am doing.
You are probably wondering how i plan to do this, well with the help of a friend (she is a wellness coach i know), i am starting on a plan with a company called Herbalife. I feel more confident using this then i have about other diets and health plans i have tried as i am going to have support every step of the way. She is helping to create a tailored plan for me that will help me get the most out of herbalife and help me achieve my goals.
At the moment i am waiting for my first assortment of products to arrive that are tailored for health, wellbeing, and weight loss in the most beneficial way. However before these arrive i am already starting on the tips she gave me on everything else i can do to improve myself. The first thing i have begun doing is consuming more water and staying more hydrated. She suggested i try and consume 2 litres of water a day, which seems like a lot for someone that doesn’t drink a lot of water. well with my first day done i consumed 1.5 litres of watre which is a great start. i also had a warm salad for dinner packed full of lovely yummy veggies. Plus i threw in a ten minute cardio session to see what my level of fitness was actually at, safe to say its not that high at the moment but that will soon change.
I am feeling really positive about this change, and can’t wait to share my progress with you. As i go along i will also share progress of my transformation via photographs.
