Down 12 pounds in a little over 14 days, most of which, I believe, came from stabilizing hormones and losing water weight. I am still heavier then I was before Christmas.
What have I been doing?
The first two this were:
1) Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water
2) Be consistent in my devotional time
to this I added:
3) Eat more veggies and fruit (5-7 servings a day) and
4) reducing sugar and white flour consumption
On an average day I now eat something like this:
Breakfast: omelet with mushrooms or oatmeal with fruit
Lunch: large warm spinach salad with either chicken or bacon and a homemade or light dressing
Dinner: a protein, a green veggie, and a starchy veggie
Evening: warm cup of sugar free cocoa thickened with chia seeds- helps with the urge to snack
The last thing I am attempting to add to my day is more exercise. I am generally moving about, but it is usually moving about washing dishes, checking in on kiddos, or fixing meals. I am trying to work toward a total of 45 minutes of intentionally extra movement. Right now I am doing TTapp for 15 minutes each day, and trying to do more outside work as the weather permits. Also making time to engage in more active play with the kids.
