We are 1/3 of the way through this challenge! Wow, and so many changes taking place because we decided to play a game!
This is a good time to reexamine what is and is NOT working in your efforts to change your lifestyle. Short term, extreme measures are not sustainable over time and a "diet" mentality always leads to weight gain in the long run.
Here are some reminders...
Write down EVERYTHING you eat. You wont have to do this forever but it is an amazing tool. You will learn so much about your choices and you portions. Why and when you choose to eat. It is very enlightening!
Drink your water, lots of it!
Get in some form of exercise everyday, even if it is just a quick 10 min walk. (walk fast!)
Give yourself lots of grace! We all have bad days and sometimes bad weeks! Just get up and go at it again. Consistency is what wins out in the long run. Slow and steady! Ever thought of what it would be like if you stopped brushing your teeth for 3 months! Think about it!
Make sure you are eating enough! Too little calories over time will mess with your metabolism in very detrimental ways!
More later, have a great week and as always, if you have any questions or need prayer or encouragement let me know!
