Let’s do this together – week two

I’ve been on the Fast Metabolism Diet for 10 days:

It will be interesting to see how the next few days/week play out. Diet wise, phase one, two and three are completely different. I thought phase three would incorporate the foods from the other two phases, but that’s not completely true.

Also, I am paying way too much attention to the diet and which foods I can eat when. That just puts my focus on food for the entire day. I don’t like that part.

Loved my workouts for the week! Super happy with getting back on track with regular workouts. Sticking with the Nia classes, riding my bike and doing some strength training. Had my first session with a personal trainer yesterday. She’s 60 and fit and strong. It was great to get some pointers from her. She also teaches a sculpt and stretch class that I will be incorporating into my workouts.

So, not sure about the FMD, but at least I did kick start my workouts again, and that’s a good thing.

Best of all, my motorcycle jacket fits better!

    That does not sound like a sustainable diet. The problem with diets is when you go back to the way you’re eating before, the weight comes back, unless you’ve made some permanent changes.

      I agree Trudy. She does have a plan to keep the weight off after getting off the diet. But the diet itself is too confusing on what foods you can eat when.

          I couldn’t agree more. I also don’t like my focus to be food. I’ve always lost weight by just being busy, not focusing on food all day!

            That’s probably the best way is just to focus on being busy since that is what has worked for you. It would be so hard to focus on food and focus on all the other things that you’re trying to do. Now if there are a couple of things that you know that you want to change in your diet permanently, that would be okay because you’re not having to think about it all the time. Kind of like the principle that you mentioned before about replacing.

    OK I’m loving that your personal trainer is 60 – talk about motivation! I mean, it’s fine to have a trainer that is 20 years old but it takes more work to be in great shape at 60 😉

      Christy, she has had double hip replacement and a fused neck! This woman took a terrible situation and turned it into an opportunity. She’s amazing.

Your thoughts? I would love to hear from you...
