Why am I doing this?
Monday, September 26, 2011
So, another amazing blog writer (diets aren't catching....something like that) encouraged me to do my strength training today. I find it amazing how inspiring this website is for me.
And now I find myself not just thinking about my calorie intake, but about the balance too - I'm noticing I don't eat enough protein and so I'm finding out more about where I could find this protein that I really don't eat enough of. Like the amount of calories in a starbucks cappuccino, I simply had no idea I was skimping on something like protein - I thought I was eating too much of it!!
So, here's to some more legumes in my life!! (Now that I know what legumes are....thanks google!!)
I also found myself wondering why I want to lose weight. I know I'm overweight, but is there something more inside me that wants to be healthier? Could I dare to be a healthier skinnier human being - that seems like such a different person to the one I am now. You see, I'm beginning to feel like maybe this time I actually will be able to do it. And I'm getting a bit excited!
