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! emoticon

    I totally know what you mean...before SP I never thought twice about what was in my beverages. I don't know how many McDonalds iced coffees I've hade over the summer...how many Dairy Queen Blizzard ice cream treats...

    Education is definitely key, and the more good things you give your body, the more it craves! emoticon

    Right there with you on all counts. It's amazing how far a little encouragement and education can go, no?
