Wedding weight loss journey - Part 1


As you all know, I got myself in an adventure with Mike to get healthier and in shape not only for our Wedding but for our future yet to come.

 I have several tastes that I knew I needed to change in order to reach my goal faster. Here are some examples:


·         My favorite drink in the world is Bacardi and Coke. I switched it to citrus vodka and water with two slices of lemons. Do I like it? Of course not! But I would learn to love it!

·         I started looking at restaurant menus in areas I used to skip. I am, or should I say was, skinny genetically until ugly 30s hit me! I have always been used to ordering whatever I wanted on the menu. It usually started with words like cheesy, pasta, creamy, fried etc.

Now I try to go straight to the salad option and if possible not even read the other options. To put it on perspective I have been happily surprised with the wonderful taste that salads have nowadays. But if I may say most restaurants lack more variety for us struggling to get back in shape.

·         Switching my daily coffee with vanilla creamer to green tea + honey or coffee with cream and sugar free vanilla syrup.

·         No more cheese. This includes my breakfast for 30 years… QUESADILLAS!

·         No bread or tortillas. My modified version of tacos and burgers involves lettuce instead.

·         No butter. I substituted it with a butter flavor powder with no calories.

·         I have been trying to cook without any oil.

 
Let me tell you its working. I seriously started changing my diet a little over a week ago and I lost 5 pounds already! I haven’t been able to work-out because my knee is a little sore after running up and down in the sand for the last wedding I coordinated a couple of weeks ago.

It excites me the idea of speeding this weight loss results when my knee lets me start working out again! In the meantime I will keep working hard to have a balanced diet.

Keep following me and see my progress! Please send me any tips, recipes and your own experiences! jenkasten@my1event.com Its always refreshing reading your feed back
