after two weeks my weight was the same. and i was still logging on and keeping track of my food. thats an achievement!!
so on the third week i decided to start setting little goals. on week three i set 2 goals.
1. keep my breakfast calories at 300
2. up my walking time to 50 minutes 5 times a week.
the results are in: i lost 2 lbs this past week---great!!!!
so for week four i added another goal: the keep my snack calories at 300. this is going to be a tough one. i am an evening snacker!!!! so i added something else to this goal: i have to be DONE eating by 7 pm. so it looks like i should be going to bed earlier.
setting small goals and trying to get them to become habit is my purpose. i probably will stick with these goals without making more for a few weeks.
so to summarize
breakfast 300 calories
snacks 300 calories total
walk 50 min. 5x week
no food after 7 pm.
i have been taking the turmeric golden paste for a week now instead of ibuprofen (for sciatica and all around aches and pains)
my observations: while i'm not pain free, i am also not 25 years old. so some aches and pains are normal and to be expected. however i really do feel like it has helped with the sciatica pain in my leg. the burning pain when i walk is gone! i have also noticed that i'm in a better mood. this could just be from the eating right and exercising, but the turmeric is supposed to be helpful in that respect also.
soooo, i'm going to continue to take it.
there is one more kind of weird thing that i have also decided to do. i have decided to not get my haircut until i reach my goal weight. its a control issue with me.
me and my turmeric golden paste!!!
until next time....................
