Reading SP Articles And Applying Them For My Fitness Plan

Thursday, December 19, 2019

Awhile ago I read that popcorn helped someone in their reducing plan. YES!!! I LOVE POPCORN! I have been doing that with some success until I started eating popcorn to excess! Well, now I am lowering my popcorn intake. I have read about another plan. Switching it up helps keep away the boredom and I think it helps with weight loss. So I read the other day that if you give your body 14 hours a day without food, you will melt away the pounds. Well, I had heard that the skinney ladies on television stop eating after 4:00 in the afternoon, and they keep thin that way. You know I am NOT going to stop eating after 4:00, but I will compromise and stop at 6:00 or 6:30 at night. I am spacing my meals this way...usually. But I give myself permission to break the rules once a week, if I need to. So I eat about 8:30...12:30...4:30...6:30. 6:30 is my popcorn and banana time, 10 cups seems a lot, but it keeps me from eating the rest of the evening. I have found that television is my enemy for eating. So In place of television I have my tablet, where I play words with friends, and other app goodies. I am learning a new language with Duolingo, a free app. Activities to keep my brain and hands free from food! I do drink my water, though! I am doing my exercises sometime after the popcorn. I find that I do not get too tired to do my housework that way. Finish the housework, and then play portable bike exercise. It feels more like a treat this way! We will know if this works in the weeks to come! I wish you all SUCCESS! Have a BLESSED day!

    I've started IF a week ago. I eat 8 to 6. I think you have to be on it a while to see the results. Good luck with the changes that you have made for yourself.
