Last blog I was going to post about the 5:2 diet.
My mum+sis have had great success with it and I thought It could help boost my efforts. But I tried a couple of low carb days as a tester and it did not go well! (hence the pic for the post)
I still think it could be a great solution for many though:
The other thing I’d like to share is a group on FB – Lean Body Consulting:
These guys talk a LOT of sense including:
‘A lot of people get tied to the idea of losing “X number of pounds per week” when, in reality, we don’t really have any influence over how much weight our body decides to lose at all.
The only thing we do have influence over is the BEHAVIORS responsible for bringing about those outcomes.
So there are really three lessons here…
1) While it will never seem fast enough, if you’re making any progress (regardless of how small it is)
it is still good progress.
2) Focus on the things you can control (behaviours) and stop fixating on the things you can’t (outcomes).
Do those things (the things you can control – behaviours) with
3) Be patient.
If you’re doing what you need to do, and the results are
coming slowly, you will eventually reach your goal.
But it is going to take time.
Have a great week y’all!
