My new workout buddy/trainer friend Mandy and I decided today that we're going to attempt to do Fat Flush for 2 months. I'm scared and excited. I don't know if I can hang on for 2 months- but if I can, I think it will be the longest I've eaten such a clean diet in my life. What will it feel like to have sugar, white flour, starchy carbs, and processed foods out of my system? I don't even know. How much more energy will I have? Will I look younger too (please)? What it's going to boil down to for me is discipline.
I'm going to have to work hard for these two months anyway because Ragnar is towards the end. I'm still debating on dropping off the team. Not because I'm scared or don't think I can do it- I've done it before. I'm worried that I have too many things on my plate and I get stressed easily. I have all kinds of lovely crap happening at work, I may or may not be moving at some point in the near future- which was also unexpected and stressful, and now I'm going to have this killer diet that I'm going to have to deal with. Don't get me wrong- I'm not saying "I'm going to have to deal with" in negative terms. I am excited about doing Fat Flush. But in order to be successful with this- I'm going to have to stay focused. Focused on trying new recipes, shopping, planning, logging and journaling....all things I don't do now. I just feel like all of that on my plate INCLUDING Ragnar might just be a little too much. We'll see- I'll try to give it a go and see how things work out.
We're going to do Fat Flush to the fullest this time too. Last time I didn't buy all the supplements- this time I got everything except one (lipase- where the crap do you find lipase?). I also didn't do the trampoline work outs- this time around Mandy is looking for a trampoline for us too.
I'm also happy about this because I have been thinking for the last week that I really want to be on a more structured program when it comes to my eating...for life. I know it's hard and sometimes we fall. But I have no structure what so ever. I eat whatever I want; when I want. I get upset if I eat too much sugar or don't work out, but most of the time I choose these things in the moment and of course, that leaves me open to choosing not to do something. Or to do too much of it (sugar). Or in other words, it's based off of how I feel in the moment- and we all know that isn't a good way to make a decision. I just think I'm more successful if I have a plan. I could be more successful with weight loss if I have a plan.
Sometimes in the past I've done something like Weight Watchers and it worked (I totally believe in WW program), but I didn't plan past losing 2 pounds a week to get to my goal. I didn't prepare myself for what I would do if I didn't meet the goal. I didn't plan on how I could be most effective in getting to that goal. I would just make a goal and start counting points and hope the rest fell into place. I've been thinking about this a lot and I'm starting to realize, I need more structure in order to be more successful at this. So that is what i'm trying to do with this Fat Flush 2 month plan. I just hope I can plan enough to keep myself from having a fall...
Okay, either tomorrow or Monday- depending on when we officially start- I will post pre- pics and pre weights/measurements, yada yada. I will also write out my goals for this other than- be healthy and how I plan to achieve these goals. I won't be posting rewards because I don't want to focus on any reward other than feeling better. The reward here is me being a healthier- happier girl. :)
I'll keep you guys posted on the events as they unfold!!!
