After all the beer I drank on Friday and soaking it up with some waffle fries and a bacon grilled cheese sandwich followed by a cheesy crabmeat omelet (sounds odd but it was so delicious)... I'll take it! It's a win-lose situation when something like this happens though. Yes, its nice to know that you can still take a break from healthy eating every once in a while and not do any damage. But that can also lead you down a road of bad meal after bad meal. The trick is to making it an every once in a while occurrence.
The other night while I was doing my workout, I was thinking about how I go about losing weight and it reminded me a lot of when I pitched during my softball days. The way you go about pitching(or at least 13 years ago when I first started pitching) you work on speed first, then you clean it up and work on accuracy. That is sort of how I've been approaching losing weight. Which may or may not be the right way to do it, but its what I'm able to do.
For the most part, I've been focusing on cardio and watching what I eat by tracking my calories in LoseIt. While T25 does have some strength and toning moves, it seems like its mostly cardio. Plus, I went through my running phase. And my food choices may not be the healthiest, but they keep me within my calorie limit and I haven't felt deprived of anything. This is the "speed" part. Finding my groove and getting started.
After New Years comes the "cleaning up" part. Danny and I have agreed to get a membership to the YMCA. He wants to start lifting again and I could benefit from lifting weights. I also want to focus on eating better foods. Danny mentioned how he would like to start using real butter instead of the "fake shit" I buy. I'm not sure I'm on board, but there are ways I can improve my food choices. Like I said, what I'm choosing now isn't necessarily the best, but its what is working at the moment. I just want to clean up our eating habits.
Do you have a tried and true method to losing weight that you go by?
