Stage 1 is preparation

The way we always advise for anyone new to these types of diets is to take it slow, gradually leaving out the normal foods you typically eat 1 by 1, so that it’s a slow gradually process of changing diets.

If it’s done overnight, you will experience many cravings, and it will make the chance of failure much higher.

When most of your usual junk foods have been eliminated, the burgers, the pizzas, the colas, the chocolate, you will be ready to go 100% fresh.

You will need some good planning, to schedule your meals and snacks throughout the day at regular intervals.

Make it as exciting and appetizing as possible, you want to look forward to eating your food, just because it’s fresh doesn’t mean it has to be a burden to eat, so try to concentrate on preparing things you know you will enjoy.

It’s always a good idea to have a shopping list prepared as well, make sure your fridge is well stocked. You don’t want to get caught off guard with no food in the house; that’s usually the best excuse people need to order a takeaway or have a pizza delivered, don’t do it! Make sure you are well stocked!

Keep Your Relationship Exciting With The Language of Desire

After you have been in a dating relationship for a while, you may sink into a routine and begin to forget the exhilarating passion you used to feel. Fortunately, this isn’t a necessary side effect of a long-term relationship, and it is possible to keep things exciting for months and years to come. Here are five ideas to get you thinking about how to keep the fire alive. To get even more tip read this detailed review of the Language of Desire program.every marriage needs the language of desire

Relive your first date.  Sometimes, the best way to remember the passionate feelings you had at the start of your dating is to go back to where they all began. Make reservations at that first restaurant you visited, pick up your partner, and don’t kiss unless it happened that first time. You can even try re-introducing yourselves and asking the basic questions that you already know the answers to. You might be surprised when it feels like you are discovering love all over again.

Start a project together.  Find a long-term endeavor that both of you can work. Have you always talked about fixing up your garage but never gotten around to it? Invite your significant other to help out and contribute ideas for the redesign. Do you love cooking together? Try making your own salsa (or pasta sauce or hot chocolate mix) and sending it to your friends. These projects will give you lots of quality time to spend together and get to know each other. Plus, you will end up with a great finished product you can be proud of together.

Have “getaway” nights.  Every few weeks, spend a night with no distractions but each other. Leave phones, computers, and anything else that connects you to the world at home. Go to a small restaurant where you won’t see anyone you know. Take an evening to pretend that you’re the only two people on Earth. If you want, spend the night at a hotel in town to really feel like you’re getting away.

Write letters to each other.  Even if you see each other every day, write letters back and forth. Writing down your thoughts not only let you open up your heart and mind in a new way, but it gives you a permanent way to hold on to those feelings forever. Two lovers exchanging letters is a classic romantic cliché and it may be the perfect way to reignite the passion again.

November News & Notes: Fibonacci Pyramid Exercise

So at last weeks weight in I hadn’t moved and inch or a pound. Which is great in my book! I may not have gotten closer to my measurements, but at least I didn’t get farther away from them.

Today started the fourth week of Final Phase for me which means that I got to do my first set of Fibonacci Pyramid workouts. I LOVED it!

It’s really easy because you stick to one exercise, but it’s so tough because of the changing weights. I honestly didn’t think it would be a big deal because you start out with small weights and work your way back down, so in my mind I truly was worried that it wouldn’t do much considering your only doing 8 and 5 reps with what I will call the “good” weights. Oh silly of me!

You build up and by the time you get to the heavier weights your arms are already tired, then you have to work back down, leaving the smaller weights feeling just as tough as, the heavier because of all the reps! Hopefully, the next one will be just as enjoyable as today!

So I was doing my daily practice of reading blogs this morning and came across a post by Doro that made me go, “By Jove! I think I need to do that too!”

Halloween has always represented the official start of the holiday season for me. Candy runs rampant and right about the time you get rid of it, Tah-dah! It’s Thanksgiving. And we know how it goes straight through to New Years.

I’ve been trying to prepare myself this year by cruising around the Recipe thread and finding lower calorie recipes I can patchwork into my holiday planning. I’ve experimented with Liss’ cakes and truffles and Roberta’s puddings. I’m still looking for Pixie’s stuffing muffins. And I need to try Julie’s makes-its-own-crust pumpkin pie soon.

We Are Having a Pot Luck at Work

I need to stay off the scale. I decided to do Mon and Fri. Fri to keep me accountable for the weekend and Mon to see how the weekend went. I tend to drink a few glasses of wine and majorly munch!!!

dietingI am stunned to see the scale drop 5 lbs since Monday. I don’t care if it is water. I won’t get real excited until I see 10. Half way there! I’ll do measurements Monday.

No walking after the VI workout today. I’ll see how my foot is after work. I have been dealing with a tendon with a slight tear for two years. I have not wanted to be off my feet for months so i have not had it repaired. The choir breaks down scar tissue when I see him and the foot and ankle has me in special shoes and orthotics. The walking on the treadmill daily has really made if flare up. Put me on my feet 3 days a week for work also and I have created a pretty good flare up again. I shall just cool the walking a bit until it calms down. Maybe walking on the days I stand all day at work is not a good idea also. I’ll experiment and figure it out. It is no secret that losing a lot of weight will also help!
