Getting rid of the holiday weight
The past couple of days I have been pretty annoyed that I gained a bit of weight. I’m sure a lot of people have that issue, right after the holidays. Feeling bloated, pants that are suddenly too tight, having to deal with a chicken or a rooster neck that wasn’t there before, being able to see your own cheeks when you smile… it’s frustrating! Around this time last year I lost roughly 10KG in about two to three weeks! And I noticed it too! I looked slimmer in the waist and face. And I didn’t do much exercise at all. Occasionally I took long walks outside.
What I did was laying off the freakin’ carbs. That means no bread, no pasta, no rice and no potatoes. Those are the main no no’s, at least for me. I was eating lots of vegetables, fish like salmon, and just meat but with moderation. So mostly just vegetables. I also ate bits of food every two hours, like one or two whole wheat crackers, fruit or yoghurt. I wanna go on that road again by eating healthy!
For dinner I simply had steamed cailuflower, grilled salmon and that’s it. Added a little bit of that powdered cheese and a little bit of garlic sauce. And it was tasty! When I lost weight last year that was what I ate a lot! For like several weeks. And for me the results were really showing! And I noticed it on the scale too! Now, this may not be the best or healthiest way to lose weight, but oh well! I am that stubborn!
Hopefully I can keep it up, because I am an emotional eater and I am eager to fall off the wagon! But let’s keep the faith! I will and must get rid of the holiday weight!
