Did I fail to plan or was it self sabotage?

So last weeks anti-inflammatory menu was a bust. My meals were bland and did not inspire me to continue. Then this weekend when I should have made more of an effort, I drank too much and shopped for items that I really did not need. At 7pm tonight I realized I didn’t have meals planned and really didn’t care. So my question is did I just neglect my plan or am I sabotaging my effort to be healthy? So after having popcorn for dinner the answer seems to be clear. I am clearly just blowing off my nutritional goals. Here is the question, why? I have lost 53 pounds and now I am stalled. I wish I had an answer and this was a mind-blowing post. It is not! It is a clear struggle to understand why I eat like I do and why I don’t put more effort into my fitness goals. So I apologize to anyone interested in my week.

So I am hoping for feedback. I really want to live a long and healthy life. But do I want to it enough to work at it. Yes, I do but where do I start? Where did you start with your healthy life? How do you make your health a priority?

Good health to you,

What’s your poison?

Let’s talk about drinking and weight loss. Everyone knows that alcohol is not the best when you are trying to get healthy. Empty calories are not something you need. However, if drinking has always been part of your social circle how do you eliminate it? Do you need to eliminate it? There are many different ideas and opinions. I had a male friend who quit drinking beer and lost 25 pounds in what seemed like 2 days. Not accurate but frustrating for some of us. I once quit drinking for 3 months and gained 10 pounds. So what is the answer?

¬†After my decision to get healthy and change my life I cut out a lot of drinking. Not that I had an issue but I was most definitely a social drinker. So when weight loss was an absolute must I didn’t know what to do. Should I switch to low carb drinks or wine or vodka? I made the decision to switch to wine and cut way back. This was my choice. What about you? If health and weight loss is your goal how do you handle liquor? Did you cut it out or scale back? My goal is to have long and healthy life. Some studies say wine is not a bad option. What do you think? What plan do you follow? Can you lose weight and stay healthy and still enjoy happy hour?

Interested in your reply.
